With the next football season within a few months, change is happening. Former Head Coach, Collin Quinn, stepped down as the football coach in April after seven years of being the coach at Minnehaha out of being a coach for 17 years. This past year he has worked with Chris Goodwin, Hugh Brown, Peter Zantop, Dante Britten, Scott Scholl, Nate Davis, Tyler Mundt, Lester Batiste, Doug Lichtenberger, Brandon Krona, Marseille Reed, and Jacob Scholl. Quinn has to say to the team and the coaches that, “ I love them, and I am grateful for the opportunity to play a small part in their development.” Even if Coach Quinn isn’t going to be the head coach for the SMB Wolfpack, he will still be at Minnehaha teaching AP United States History, Leadership Studies, and Government classes.
With Quinn leaving comes a new coach. After months of applications, interviews, many choices and the Athletic Departments from Minnehaha, Saint Paul Academy and Blake School coming up with a decision, there has recently been a final decision on who the new coach should be. The new head coach for the SMB Wolfpack is Coach Chris Goodwin.
Goodwin was an assistant coach for the Wolfpack and was the offensive coordinator for last year. “I am honored for the opportunity to lead an already successful program directed by Colin Quinn the past 4 years. The SMB Wolfpack has an incredibly strong tradition of developing exceptional student-athletes and leaders, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to build on our success.” Says Goodwin. With Goodwin being the new coach, no their changes are being made to the Wolfpack coaches.
“Coach Goodwin will do a great job. He is smart, organized, and knows how to put players in place where they can succeed. He has a great group of assistants around him and they will continue to move the program forward.” Say Quinn, congratulating Goodwin and wishing him an amazing next season, along with the rest of the Wolfpack.
