MORE from our HomeTeam writers.
Folks, we request all the names and resumes for those who apply for most every football coaching job, and we did so in the case of Mitchell, but we only received a list of nine names. Most of those names were familiar to me, others I could at least reference from our archives, and Google provided me a helping hand.
Unfortunately, in updating the nine finalists for Mitchell, I couldn't find any info on Dan Whittaker. I asked for it, didn't receive it, and someone at the county office was tracking it down for me (through the principal and athletic director).
When I didn't receive the info Wednesday, I listed Whittaker's name without any information because, well, I had none. Not an excuse, just explaining what happened, and for that I apologize to Dan Whittaker, who was the Mitchell junior varsity coach last season, and also an assistant coach on the Mustangs' state championship soccer team last season.
