RHINELANDER - Rhinelander's new head football coach arrived in town over the weekend and he's not wasting any time. Chris Ferge started the process of taking over the Hodag program.

Ferge was at the high school interviewing assistant coaches on Saturday. He plans to be in town all summer, to help make the transition a smooth one.

The new coach spent the last few years as an assistant coach at Two Rivers High School. Two Rivers has enjoyed four consecutive winning seasons. But Coach Ferge says, that wasn't always the case.

Coach Ferge also talked about the personality traits he wants in his assistant coaches.
