First year coaches ready to start

The official start of high school football practice is on Monday, and while it's the most exciting time of year for all coaches, it's especially thrilling for the coaches who will be leading their teams for the first time this year.
There are plenty of new faces this year who will hope to either continue the foundation of success that's been laid, or turn a program around.
Birmingham Seaholm has a new coach in Jim Pobursky, who was named the head coach after Nick Deane, the replacement for the head coach of the previous five years, Chris Fahr, died tragically of a heart attack in the summer.
After longtime coach Jim MacDougall turned around yet another program at Berkley, the Bears will welcome in Jeff Burnside to take over after MacDougall retired.
In its fourth year as a program, Auburn Hills Oakland Christian has a new coach in Bill Schaffer.
At Oak Park, legendary coach Greg Carter, who won state championships with Detroit DePorres and helped turn Inkster into a state power, is now the head man for the Knights.
Finally, an old Fox returns to the sidelines. After a three-year hiatus from coaching, Pat Fox is back on the sideline at Milford. He takes over for Jeff Hill, who is the new head coach at Royal Oak.
