Now, of course, it’s more than just a new season for Central Washington football.
It’s a new era, with longtime assistant coach John Picha assuming the program’s reins after Friday’s firing of Blaine Bennett.
The Wildcats report today and begin workouts Thursday in preparation for their Sept. 7 season-opener at home against Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Picha, who played for the Wildcats before starting a coaching career that saw him serve 18 seasons as a full-time assistant, will today welcome 100-plus players plus several junior college transfers. The day will be spent with Picha and his staff dispensing equipment and holding meetings.
Central, which finished 7-4 last season and won its fourth GNAC championship in five years, looks to be especially strong defensively under second-year coordinator Malik Roberson.
