Is Wawasee's Wogomon headed to Northridge football?

Posted on Feb. 19, 2013 at 12:00 a.m. | Updated on Feb. 19, 2013 at 12:24 p.m.

One door closes and another opens in the house of Northern Lakes Conference football. At least all indications point to it.

According to a Facebook post by the Times-Union of Warsaw, Wawasee head coach Tom Wogomon has resigned his position to accept a head coaching position at another high school, though that school was not named in the update. The information was confirmed by Wawasee High School officials, according to www.tuonline.com.

Northridge, which has been seeking to fill its post since last November when Jon Kirkton resigned, will announce its new hire Tuesday, Feb. 19. Wogomon, though coaching and teaching in Syracuse for six seasons while compiling a 25-37 record, still lives in Middlebury and his children attend Northridge schools.

Sources have shared with me that two fathers of Northridge football players have saidthat Wogomon will be named the new NR head coach. Though Raider football is a challenge, Wogomon is a great fit to turn things around. He helped Wawasee turn the corner after Joe Reitveld left in 2006and the Warriors won 20 games in the last three seasons and played for a 4A sectional championship last November.

The Warriors have a great young quarterback in Gage Reinhard and a fabulous wideout named Clayton Cook. Cupboard won't be bare for the next Wawasee coach.
