The Herald-Citizen has a story about former Dartmouth receiver Matthan Houser being named head football coach at a Tennessee high school.
•Portal 31, the Yale football blog arm of the New Haven Register, kicks into gear with a quick look at the search for a new football coach in Bulldog Land.
•Someone posting a story on The Bleacher Report is unhappy with the hiring of former Dartmouth assistant Joe Moglia as football coach at Coastal Carolina. From the story:
Joe Moglia certainly has an impressive career resume. How many of us have been responsible for the fortunes of some of the wealthiest companies in America, after all? The only problem with that resume, however, is that there is absolutely nothing on it that makes him remotely qualified to be the head coach at any Division I school, let alone a successful one like Coastal Carolina.
So how then did Moglia manage to get a job for which he is completely unqualified? The obvious answer is his wealth.
•For what it's worth, The Bleacher Report is what it suggests, a voice for the fan. Your mileage may vary.
From Football Scoop:
Two Texas state championship games have drawn more fans than any bowl game that has been played thus far.Three high school championship games played in one day at Cowboys Stadium drew more than 100,000 fans combined. link
•The story about 14-year-old basketball standout Evan Boudreaux, the high school freshman from Lake Forest, Ill., whose brother is Dartmouth freshman tight end Chris Boudreaux and whose mother, Gail (Koziara) is a basketball/track legend at Dartmouth (link) has corrected his height to 6-foot-7.

As far as football goes, in its season wrap the Lake Forest Sun Times wrote:
Freshman Evan Boudreaux played quarterback on the freshman team and was brought up to varsity near the end of the season. Boudreaux, 6-foot-7, became the starting punter for the final four games.
“We called him up in case we needed him at quarterback,” Spagnoli said. “His punting was icing on the cake.”
