Hadachek Resigns at Buena VistaSTORM LAKE, Iowa - Joe Hadachek, head football coach at Buena Vista University, announced his resignation Nov. 17 at a press conference held on the BVU campus.Hadachek and his Beaver football team recently completed a highly successful season, one in which the team finished at 7-3 and contended for the Iowa Conference title.Hadachek decided to resign in order to pursue other business ventures and to spend more time with his family.
During Hadachek's four seasons as head coach, he turned a 2-7 team into a squad which went 5-5, 3-7 and 7-3 in the three seasons prior to this one.The Beavers' scoring average jumped from 20.1 points per game in 1996 to 30.9 points per game in 1999.
"Beaver football is on solid ground," said Hadachek."The leadership on my staff and team at this point is at an all-time high.I believe this team is now in a situation where they can do great things without me. "I want to thank the student-athletes I have coached in the past four years for their commitment and dedication to excellence, and I want to thank my staff for a work ethic second to none," said Hadachek."

This has not only been the motto of the 1999 Beaver football squad , it has been the philosophy fourth-year Head Football Coach Joe Hadachek has lived by during his era here at Buena Vista University.
On Wednesday , that era ended
Our Head Football Coach Joe Hadachek is stepping down..
Hadachek privately broke the news to the players on Tuesday night.
Hadachek came to BVU four seasons ago with one goal : to bring excitement and a winning tradition to Beaver football.He has reached this goal faster than most thought possible.
Upon his arrival , Hadachek found a team that struggled to win two games the year before.Yet , through a lot of blood , sweat and tears , he has crafted a coaching staff and a team who have once again established themselves in the Iowa Conference.
Under the direction of Hadachek , the Beaver offense has gained long-awaited muscle and developed increased depth.The offensive output has leaped nearly one hundred yards per game , from 283.8 yards per game in 1996 , to an average of 379.1 this season.Hadachek's overall record at BVU is 22-18.
With the revamped offense , scoring has also jumped from 20.1 points per game in 1996 to 30.9 in his final season , in a ferociously competitive Iowa Conference.
Hadachek has always been a guy that would give up anything and make any sacrifice to give his team the opportunity to achieve all that was humanly possible.This , however , was something that he just couldn't do anymore.
At this stage in my career , I want more time with my family and to pursue my business interests , Hadachek said at the press conference.
When I sat down with him personally , he elaborated on this even more.
While at a coaching conference in Ohio last summer , he rode in an elevator with Jim McNally , who is the offensive line coach for the New York Giants and a long-time hero of Hadachek.
McNally's son turned to him and asked when his birthday was , and he did not know.
Right there my brain started thinking , ‘What am I doing?' Hadachek said.
I'm just going through the motions , and that's why , Hadachek said.
I love coming to practice , but instead of ( juniors ) Brian Davis and Kurt Boustead playing catch with my sons , I want to play catch with my sons , Hadachek said emotionally.
For the coach that has known only to give himself totally and without equivocation , there finally came a moment of truth.He was faced with a decision between the career and the players that he has loved for 14 years , or the wife and budding family that he will always love and be loved by.
They're sheddin' a few tears too , Hadachek said of his family.My wife has not pressured me into this situation.I did make the decision.If I was saying it was an easy decision , I'd be lying to you.It was a very , very difficult decision and one that I had to put a lot of thought into...I will carry on..
When asked to describe Hadachek in one word , many of his players said intense , special or a leader.
Giving…I would say giving , because that's all he's done and that's why he's leaving because he doesn't feel like he can give enough to his family while he's giving to us as a family…the team , Boustead said.That's probably the one thing the guy is , someone that's willing to give up anything to either make the commitment to the team or make the commitment to his family and he's obviously shown that he'll give up anything to make his commitment to his family work..
At the end of the players' meeting on Tuesday , an emotional Hadachek walked out of the room as the players stood up , without a word , and gave their coach a standing ovation.This simple dignified act showed the character and class Hadachek has instilled in his players , and the admiration and respect they have for him.
A lot of times I might not show a lot of emotion , as far as a softer side , but , that one got me , Hadachek said.
They ( Advocare ) deal with world-class nutritional products that help people lose weight , gain energy or increase performance , and that's something I've always had an interest in , Hadachek said.
As for a successor to Hadachek , Director of Athletics Jan Travis talked of how they will post the job opening for a week but will also be looking internally for Hadachek's replacement , with him aiding in the process.
I've been blessed to have input with Fred and Jan , Hadachek said.I can't disclose who that will be but as a staff we've agreed on what would be in the best interest of the staff to take the next step..
As I was talking with Hadachek for what may be the last time , his door opened at the end of the interview and his son Trevor walked in.
This symbolized the opening of a new door for Hadachek and a new focus for his energies.Though the door may be closing on his career at BVU , his memory , influence and dedication will last.
Other players added their feelings about Hadachek and his coaching style.
Hadachek has always shown class , taken pride and displayed character in everything he's done , and has proven himself as a winner.
President Moore may have put it best when he said very simply , Joe…We're gonna miss you..

I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks for a tremendous experience in the international/global arena of football.This was an experience they will never forget.To see the interaction between the young people of Russia and the United_States was memorable.I hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again in bringing tackle football to the world..
