South Central fires Foster, hires Klimczak
Dan Klimczak, South Central football coach
UNION MILLS | It's certainly not the situation Dan Klimczak envisioned for himself two days before the start of the football season.
Instead of settling into his first year as athletic director at South Central High School, he finds himself juggling his administrative responsibilities, with those of the head football coach.
Klimczak, the former Wheeler coach who came on as A.D. at his alma mater just last month, was formally approved by the South Central school board at its meeting Wednesday.
"It's been such a whirlwind," Klimczak said.
Given the circumstances, Klimczak said they're handling it as well as can be expected.
"There were some close relationships involved," he said.
The Satellites host LaVille Friday and while the state of flux could certainly be a viable excuse, Klimczak isn't looking for an out.
"Change is constant. Change determines the kind of person you are," he said.

The offensive line lost a lot of talent from last year, but Coach Klimczak is confident in the group this season. Though smaller than last season, he feels they are athletic and tough and will get the job done.
At most smaller schools, kids are forced to play both ways due to the size of the roster. This is the case at Wheeler as Coach Klimczak will be forced to trust players to play both offense and defense.

Wheeler officially has named Dan Klimczak as its football coach.
The Union Township school board approved his hire on Wednesday night.The Post-Tribune last week reported Klimczak would succeed Phil Mason.
"Being a head coach has been a dream of mine since I was a young boy," said Klimczak, one of several members of his family to star at South Central and the grandson of a former LaPorte coach.
"Wheeler is a program that is growing.They're really starting to build a strong tradition.It's really appealing as a young coach.My family and I are elated."
Klimczak spent six seasons as a coach at Valparaiso, most recently as the junior varsity head coach, varsity defensive line coach and assistant strength coach.The St. Joseph's College graduate also spent one season as an assistant at Knox.
Klimczak, who turns 30 in August, will teach social studies and U.S. government at Wheeler.He still resides in Union Mills.
"Any time you're able to work under a coach like (Valparaiso) Coach (Mark) Hoffman, it's really a benefit," Klimczak said.
"Being a graduate of South Central, I prefer a small-school atmosphere."
Klimczak has met with several players informally, and has a meeting scheduled for tonight with the players and their parents.
"I try to build strong relationships with everyone involved - players, their families, the coaches, the administration," he said.
"I'm a people person.
"You're always looking for ways to improve," Klimczak said.
