You'll have to forgive Ashland athletic director Rick Brindley if he's a little distracted Friday when the Arrows (9-1) host West Geauga in a Division II, Region 5 quarterfinal at Community Stadium.
A former assistant coach at Hillsdale and the head coach at Crestview from 1991 through 1998, Brindley will be keeping tabs on what's happening near Olivesburg when the Cougars host the Falcons in an all-north central Ohio Division V, Region 18 quarterfinal game. "If we did not have a game," Brindley said, "I certainly would be there to see two schools that still hold a special place in my heart." Brindley was an assistant at Hillsdale from 1987 to 1990. Rick was the head coach (at Crestview)," Brindley said. "Those three gentlemen fit right in with the staff. I got to know each on a personal level and that was my 'in' to Crestview the next year when Rick Jennings had back surgery the following spring and decided not to coach again in 1991. "Coach Bailey called me and asked me to apply for the (Crestview) job, which I was grateful for." Brindley was 35-45 in eight seasons at Crestview, but is widely regarded as the architect for Crestview's revival under Mark Solis and continued success under Sean Conway. While at Crestview, Brindley forged a close relationship with Bailey, who was a history teacher and football coach for 34 years. Bailey succumbed to pancreatic cancer in the summer of 2007 and Crestview's football field was named Scott Bailey Memorial Field. "I learned a lot from Scott in regards to coaching and teaching lifelong lessons to athletes and students," Brindley said. "I think that it is a great thing for the area to have two very good programs facing each other in the playoffs," Brindley said. So who does Brindley think will win? The former coach isn't saying. "I wish nothing but the best of luck to both schools," he said.
