Baseball hiring in CdA doesn’t seem to inspire confidence


Who would have thought a baseball coach hiring would move the attention meter?

If the comments posted on Greg Lee's Idaho Prep Sports blog are any indication, then Coeur d'Alene athletic director Larry Schwenke's decision to recommend Chris Stangel, a former California policeman, be hired as CdA's next baseball coach isn't a popular one.

There are three comments so far (1 p.m.) at the bottom of Greg's story concerning Stangel, and none of the commentators like the hiring one bit. The jist of most of the comments revolve around passing over CdA alums for the job.
