Word has spread about the future of 3 area football programs and their coaches.
What is true is that Bad Axe, Lakers and Ubly will have new varsity football coaches come this fall.
Dave Rowland is out at Bad Axe, George Gardy is out at Lakers, and Bill Sweeney is out at Ubly.
Gardy retired earlier this year. Sweeney resigned earlier this week. The reason for Rowland's dismissal is not clear.
The Tribune, in the near future, will have stories on each departure and what it means to the programs.
