By the time he finished college, Adam Reese had his career path firmly plotted.

But it didn’t take long to get a bit off track — albeit in a satisfying way.

A one-time aspiring baseball coach, Reese was hired Monday as the new head football coach at Franklin Community High School. He joins the Grizzly Cubs after four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Class 4A runner-up Mishawaka, where he carved a reputation as one of the state’s top offensive innovators.

Named Offensive Coordinator of the Year by Indiana Football Digest in 2011, the 35-year-old Reese is charged with reversing the fortunes of a program that hasn’t had a winning season since 1996 — the same year he graduated from Plymouth High School.

A husband, father and high school social studies teacher, Reese — a first-time head football coach — looks forward to getting to work.
