Chris and Heather Creighton Are Leaving Wabash. Chris will take over as head football coach for the Drake University Bulldogs.
In our Air Force days, we got used to friends coming and going…that’s just the way life was. It meant you ended up with more friends, not less. Of course, that didn’t make the “Goodbyes” any easier. I had hoped Chris and Heather would remain here, at least until Carol and I ride off into the sunset of retirement. However, it just wasn’t to be.
That might be my favorite picture of Chris…in the Grunge’s mind a great coach is, first and foremost, a great teacher of life skills. CC, as he is sometimes called, could probably write a book titled “Everything you need to know about life, you can learn on the field…and in Church.”
Of course, his partner in all of this, Coach Heather, is also a great fit. She knows football and she lives, lives “Wabash Always Fights”. We’ll miss that smile, for sure!
Chris and Heather leave a program that achieved great things. All you can ask is that people leave an organization in better shape than when they arrived – and they have done that for sure.
So, we wish them the absolute best. Our loss is Drake’s gain. Godspeed, friends.
I guess Carol and the Grunge are officially Little Giant, Fighting Irish, and Drake Bulldog fans…as of today.
