Jeff Coufal plans to be North Star's head coach for this season only. He was asked to take over the program by Brittney Hansen and he couldn't say no. Why? Hansen is Coufal's daughter.
Hansen is taking a break from her full-time coaching responsibilities to be with her newborn son. Needing a replacement, Coufal was the easy choice. He's served on the Navigators' coaching staff for 12 seasons and worked under Brittney last year. The LNS players say its been a seamless transition and the two coaches are very like-minded.
Coufal adds that he's happy to help his daughter and the program simultaneously.
Lincoln North Star recently won its 10th game of the season. The Navigators were the first Class A team to reach the 10-win mark.
