Wow, any more information than what is in the article?

What more needs to be said? They are actually putting health and safety first.

The coaches have a right to do what they feel is best for them. The players have a right to play or not play if they want. The school has a right to move on from those who make those personal decisions.

Graff has done a wonderful job of coaching over the years, but clearly time to move on for both the program and him.

All of us work for a living. We have the right to quit if things are not the way we want. Hopefully Graff wasnt forced to quit his regular job because of Covid.

Graff and Valesano have high level jobs with the City of Crystal Falls, if they fall ill there isn't much there to replace them. Both have families they need to look out for and their own health. They are two of the best guys I've ever come across in coaching, they've given their lives to the community and the football program. It's more than okay that they look out for themselves now.

If that is the reason they stepped down.... the community will support them. Just like community should support the program for moving on without them.

I have all the respect in the world for people who are putting their families first. The only place I have an issue is where people think its their job to tell other families what is best for them. Doesn't appear to be the case here.
