Gorch on the Porch: Good Bye decision

Photo by Robb QuinnMichigan City assistant coach Ken Bye roams the sideline during last Friday's 38-10 sectional championship victory over La Porte at Ames Field.

After last Friday’s 38-10 victory over La Porte in the Class 5A Sectional 9 championship game, Phil Mason admitted his wife told him two years ago that if he was ‘as good as you think you are, you’ll get it done,’ in reference to Mason deciding to take the Wolves’ head coaching job.

But just because Mason has an ego like most coaches — hey, after being married 24 years, I’m not going to disagree with the real boss of his family, Dee Mason, no siree Bob! — doesn’t mean he won’t look for the best assistant coaches to put around him to produce the best formula for success.
