Dear Sandy, Janet and Jeff,

I have been able to get HR to allow me to hire an additional full time PE/Head FB Coach. Given the recent layoffs in PE this is nothing short of a small miracle. Obviously we all want Coach Fanger. I do not have to post this position or interview other candidates at this time. I am thrilled to say the least. The problem is we need .3 additional FTE to make this work or approximately $30,000. This money would allow us to have a total of 3.5 FTE in PE and support an excellent FB program. To be honest we really need 4.0 FTE which would take an additional $70,000.

I am hoping that the Football parents and Booster parents can help Sandy and the Foundation Board reach out to all Football families for donations to the Foundation ASAP. The sooner we can get a commitment of $30,000 the sooner I can get an updated commitment letter from the Foundation to get HR to call Coach Fanger and offer him the job officially. I know he needs that call to fully and officially commit to our team and school.

Please let me know if this is a realistic possibility as soon as possible. Jeff, if you can think of any other options please let me know. I am so excited to be able to hire Coach Fanger and I can hardly wait to make this happen.

Hello Booster Board,

I hate to disturb your summer, but we have run across a major problem with securing funding for the new football coach at Lincoln high school. We need to have a quick emergency meeting Monday evening at 7 pm at the Lincoln field. I know this is very short notice, but the issue has a time frame that is equally short. Can you please respond and let me know if you can make the meeting, and I will follow up in the morning with more detail about the issue. My computer is giving me trouble, so forgive me if you get this message twice.

I believe you have the latest football email list. We need to get a message out quickly about the foundation's need in order to try to raise money. Can you forward it to everyone on your list?

Dear Football Community,

As you may or may not know, the budget cuts have wreaked havoc with Lincoln's plan to hire Football Coach Mike Fanger as a PE teacher, which needs to happen in order for him to be able to provide benefits and salary for his family to live on. He has worked long and hard for our boys, as have all of the assistant coaches, with the expectation that the job would come through as planned. Unfortunately, COACH FANGER DOES NOT YET HAVE A TEACHING JOB AT LINCOLN THRU NO FAULT OF HIS OR LINCOLN, DESPITE INCREDIBLE EFFORTS ON EVERYONE ON LINCOLN'S PART TO OPEN A SPOT FOR HIM. Peyton Chapman has been able to pull off a near miracle, as set out below, but she needs to have additional funds in order to actually hire. He has provided and clearly promises in the future to bring Lincoln great things in football. Please pull out whatever stops you may have to assist in securing funds in order to have Coach Fanger hired on the Lincoln Staff.
