Getts helping out at Harding

Former Wayne coach Larry Getts has resurfaced as the receivers coach at Harding.

Early in the summer, when it was apparent Getts wouldn't be rehired at Wayne as a teacher or coach, he contacted Harding coach Sherwood Haydock.

Haydock said Getts has been a big plus.

An interesting twist is Getts' role as receivers coach since his teams at Wayne were noted for running the football - a lot.

In five season with the Generals, Getts was 19-36 but was 7-5 last year and seemed to have the program headed in the right direction. Wayne lost to Delta in the Class 3A sectional championship game.

He is only a volunteer coach with the Hawks and is still without a teaching position.

Former Elmhurst coach Kyle Beauchamp has moved into Getts' old job at Wayne, pending approval from Fort Wayne Community Schools.
