Tim Hiller hired as head football coach at Gull Lake (Michigan) High School

Great news out of Michigan today.  Orrville and Western Michigan grad Tim Hiller has been named the head football coach at Gull Lake 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."
