Rocky Hill is out at Julian and in at Crete-Monee...
Hill, who coached at Thornton in the '90s and still is employed there, has returned to the South suburbs.
"I'm just a suburban guy," Hill said. "The Public League is different, a different world. I walk away with good memories because we had an outstanding year."
Crete-Monee has had plenty of talent transfer out in recent years (Howard Little to Rich Central and Mustapha Farrakhan to Thornton).
"My biggest task at Crete is keeping that talent at home," Hill said. "I need to convince the kids that we have a good thing going in the community."
The Julian job is bound to attract plenty of interest. Former Westinghouse coach Quitman Dillard would have to be a major contender. Dillard is teaching at Crane and is currently without a coaching position. Henry Cotton has taken over at Westinghouse.
Other names likely to surface include Red Hefferman, Chris Head and Calvin Holiday.
