Goshe Steps Down As GCHS Head Fooball Coach

Nick Goshe announced that he will be leaving the Grayslake Central football program.

The head football coach of the Rams announced his resignation from coaching this week.

Grayslake Central Head Varsity Football Coach Nick Goshe announced that he does not intend to continue coaching at GCHS for the 2012-2013 season, according to a statement released by District 127 Superintendent Catherine Finger. She said Goshe will continue teaching in the Life Fitness Department at GCHS.

"Goshe and his coaching staff have done an outstanding job building both the football program and garnering community support," Finger stated. "Summer football camps will continue under the leadership of Assistant Varsity Coaches Ben Ault and Dan Catanzaro.”

The Rams, who ended last season 7-2, made it into the the playoffs, but lost in the first round to the Tinley Park Titans 35-22.

Overall, Goshe was 18-30 in the five years he manned the helm for the Rams football program, for a .375 winning percentage. His winning percentage increased every year. The last two years his percentage rose to .545 and .700.

Goshe is reportedly going to William Fremd High School in Palatine to become the offensive coordinator, according to multiple sources. Goshe did not respond to requests for an interview.

Big news, Marcia. Sorry to see Nick go. He helped bring in a new winning era at Central

Sad to see Coach Goshe leave a program that he worked so hard to build up. Very successful coach and a great leader. He will be greatly missed and I hope he lands on his feet in his next opportunity. He has surrounded himself with excellent people who will carry on the tradition of winning that Goshe re-established over the past two years. I have always found him to be a class act and really respect him as a coach and a person. I'm sure it was a difficult decision for him to make, but I wish him the best.

After reading the article about Goshe in the Daily Herald, he sounds more arrogant than ever. He knows that the program will not be as good as the last few years so he bailed. Most people take a promotion when they change programs/schools, he leaves to be an assistant. Let's hope he doesn't leave school early everyday during the football season so he can be at Fremd on time for football practice!!! My hat is off to the athletes who worked so hard over the last few years and who stayed with the program, not the guy who bails on his team and then stays at the school and teaches.

I agree Grayslake Fan. There just has to be more to it then what we know. This just does not make sense.

Grayslake Fan - He did not bail on the team because the team may not be be as good as last year. Many people will speculate why he left, but the reality is that he has reasons why, and it really has nothing to do with the team. In addition, it is really not your business, nor mine, and I have a player in the program. While I have heard some of the reasons he is going, an have a pretty good idea why he is leaving, I have not walked in his shoes, and have to respect his decision, regardless of my personal feelings. If he does not publically reveal the reason he is leaving, then it is no one's business. It is, however, a shame he is leaving - he did a lot of good for this program, and any athlete that played under him benefitted from his discipline and work ethic. As for the team, I hope they can pull things together for the upcoming season - it will likely be a tough year without his strong leadership. I know it is a tough blow to the players. Many feel let down. It was a very abrupt departure, and regardless of how I, or anyone associated with the program feels, this is just something we cannot change. I hope they (the team and coaches) can make the best of a less than ideal situation.
