Tim Hiller hired as head football coach at Gull Lake (Michigan) High School
Here's the article from MLive.com announcing the decision, and here's a link to Gull Lake's webpage.
Gull Lake is a northeast suburb of Kalamazoo, where Tim played his college ball. Tim will also serve as the marketing and community relations director for the district.
What I can gather from this link, Gull Lake football has been around since 1965 and has a 199-217-3 all-time record, they've gone 55-41 over the past 10 seasons with 6 playoff appearances. Looks like they play a 9-game schedule, with weeks 10 and beyond being their playoffs.
Congratulations to Tim, his wife Michelle and his family. Class acts all the way. Great to see a young man grounded in faith get an opportunity to be involved in the lives of young people, and coach the sport that gave him so many opportunities.
I think the Blue Devils of Gull Lake will be very pleased with the program that Tim will run.
Here's to Gull Lake getting an infusion of that Orrville "swag."
