Football: Windsor coaching staff down 2 since start of New Year

What was that about rearranging deck chairs? Windsor athletic director Gord Grace has seen the Lancers football program lose two assistant coaches this month, first associate coach Scott Fawcett and
now Brett Thomson:
"Thomson ran Windsor's offence for the past two seasons.

"His departure follows the Jan. 15 resignation of Scott Fawcett, the associate head coach.

"Fawcett, who left for personal reasons, was also in charge of special teams, running backs and recruiting. He was also stadium manager."
A personal belief is that people voluntarily leaving an organization is a symptom of disfunction at the top of the chain (one Star commenter: "This problem in the football office doesn't start with Morencie, it starts with GORD GRACE!!").

It really is getting to a point where the question is how long it will take Windsor to recover from its self-inflicted kneecapping. This is a difficult time in that area of Ontario, which affects the best high school athletes' desire to study and play at their hometown university. It makes it a critical time for amateur teams which can bring some pride to a community; Windsor has a Cadillac major junior hockey team and several other Lancers squads are doing well. Football, well, is another story, to put it politely.
