Hofer Retiring

Postby upman01 » Wed Apr 03, 2019 5:11 pm

I see it's been announced Chris Hofer is retiring at Kingsford. Great coach who will be missed. Has anyone heard who might be taking over as coach?

Anyone know, when was the last year we didn't have a Hofer coaching?

If he wants the job, I would think Mark Novara would be in the hunt. Would make for an easier transition.

Former Kingsford coach Rex Terwilliger passed away at the age of 83 a week ago. Rex coached from 1966-1978. He also coached girls track for Iron Mountain for 20 years later in life.

Anyway, here is your trivia question:

Name all the head coaches that have coached at least one game for Kingsford varsity football that are still with us (alive)?

Answer - Only one. Chris Hofer.

He will be inducted into the UP Sports Hall of Fame Saturday. Long overdue.

Kingsford guru Art Vines has corrected me..

The Flivvers have 2 living coaches. Coach Paul Goodreau who led the Flivvers for one year in 1952 is still with us.

Appreciate the correction!! Very interesting to hear.
