New football coaches in place

It's the offseason for football, which means there are the usual shifts as it relates to coaching positions in the county.
Over at Royal Oak, the Ravens have hired Jeff Hill to be their new head man. Hill spent the last three seasons at Milford, where he was a two-point conversion that was converted by Lakeland in overtime in the season finale away from leading the Mavericks to the playoffs last season.
Hill has a lot of work to do at Royal Oak, which has suffered through three consecutive winless seasons.
Another school with a new head coach is Birmingham Seaholm, which has replaced former coach Chris Fahr with Nick Deane, who was Seaholm's offensive coordinator the last two seasons.
Seaholm hasn't made the playoffs in four years, so Deane obviously will hope to end that drought.
- Another negative to the court-ordered season change a few years ago that moved girls basketball from fall to winter is that with facilities being cramped as they are, it makes it a major hassle to reschedule games. That actually can lead to some danger when bad weather hits.
On Tuesday, about 4-5 inches fell around the Detroit area. It wasn't a huge storm, but enough to make roads a mess and make driving a risky proposition. But since athletic directors know the difficulties of rescheduling games, they went ahead and decided not to cancel the games.
Kosmo actually applauds the AD's for their decision, especially since 4 to 5 inches of snow never used to be cause for cancellations, but is a bit now because of the politically correct nature of school districts who fear lawsuits.
Knowing that, it makes the jobs of AD's even harder when snow hits during the winter because of the season change.
