For the first time in 27 years, Dan Flynn is not coaching the Escanaba Eskymos this fall. Enter Escanaba High School alum and former offensive coordinator Jim Hansen.
He takes over a team that went 7-4 last year, making the playoffs. Hansen assumes the top leadership position on this team, but his upperclassmen are helping him out in that department.
If the Eskymos are going to make it back-to-back playoff appearances, Hansen said that his “Teams D”- discipline- is going to have to lead the way.
Escanaba plays downstate at Alpena Friday night.
