Feedback - Former Clyde, Sweetwater coach Craig Slaughter enjoying role as Wall DC

I really enjoyed the article Evan did on Coach Craig Slaughter.

I remember when Sweetwater hired Coach Slaughter and I remember how good his resume was when he came from Clyde. For whatever reason, (which is none of my business), he was only there a couple of years but the article pinpointed to a few reasons he left.

"Carrying an 85-84 overall record as a head coach (including a stint at Hearne), Slaughter had the difficult task of transitioning Sweetwater from a wishbone offense to a more diverse I-based attack during his tenure with the Mustangs. A 1-9 opening season was followed by back-to-back 4-6 marks while attempting to introduce a passing game to a program that was completely steeped in the option.

But just as Slaughter had begun to solidify a foundation, the opportunity at Llano surfaced." 

So now I see what happened. In fact, that formation that Slaughter brought to Sweetwater is still used today I believe. I know Coach Slaughter is a hard worker and he certainly has the Hawks in the right place. I guess my impression is, some folks are great coaches, and then some folks make great assistant coaches.  Coach Slaughter has found his niche. Who can ask for anything more?
