This Week, a chain of community newspapers in Columbus, is reporting that Painesville Riverside head coach Matt Jordan has been offered the vacant headset at Grove City.
Beaver fans eventually had to expect other schools to look at Jordan — in three seasons at a Division I school he’s taken his teams to the playoffs twice. To fans of the Massillons, St. Ignatiuses, St. Edwards and Glenvilles of the world, that’s almost considered rude.
In Grove City, he’ll be replacing Scott McIntire, whose contract was not renewed after a 2-8 season in 2007. McIntire joined the Dawgs’ coaching staff in 1986 as an assistant, and in five seasons as head coach led them to a pair of playoff appearances.
What’ll be more interesting is to see who the district chooses to replace Jordan. Could it be, say…ex-Beavers-coach-now-reborn-as Mentor-offensive-coordinator Don Anderson?
