Big coaching news at Adams

For the last seven years, Chuck Van Robays has helped build the Rochester Adams baseball program back to the prominent level it was at in the mid 90's, when Van Robays was a catcher on teams that went to the state finals in 1995 and 1996.
Now, Van Robays has decided to move on.
In a somewhat surprising development, Van Robays stepped down as head coach a couple of weeks ago.
He and his wife are expecting their first child in January and he works full-time training players at the Varsity Shop Training Center in Bloomfield Hills.
As a result, the amount of time he likes to put into the baseball program at Adams would've been affected, so he decided to step aside.
It's sad news for Adams because Van Robays is one of the best young coaches in the area in any sport.
He helped lead Adams to a 51-17 record the last two seasons and an appearance in the Division 1 state quarterfinals this past June.
The good news for Adams though is that he leaves the baseball program in terrific shape for whoever replaces him.
Adams is just the latest baseball coaching opening in the county. Royal Oak, Troy and West Bloomfield are also looking for new coaches.
