Here's a rising high school coach worth keeping an eye on for Gophers fans.
Lamanzer Williams, an All-American defensive end at Minnesota in 1997, has been named head coach at Holland (Mi.) High School, which won a district championship last year. Williams is currently the athletic director and head football coach at Inkster High School.
Williams holds the Gophers' single-season record for sacks, totalling 18.5 in 1997. He had 24 tackles for losses that season, which is also a Minnesota record.

It was bad enough that Minnesota United played as poorly as it did in Wednesday night's 4-0 loss. But the game will be remembered for a remarkable goal that should become the working definition of #fail for a while.
