Lafayette Names Former Assistant New Football Coach

Andy Linn has been promoted from assistant to head football coach at Lafayette High School.

Linn takes over for Paul Wheeler, who resigned at the end of a 5-5 season.  Lafayette actually finished 7-3 on the field, but had to forfeit two games at the end of the season after reporting itself for using two players that didn't have a physical examine.  Those forfeits knocked Lafayette out of the postseason.

Wheeler spent 10 years at Lafayette, leading the Rams to a 82-31 record and a 2001 Division 4 state title.

Wheeler had tried to take back his resignation that he submitted after the season, but school officials wouldn't reinstate him.
