Ric Evans has no illusions about his new job. In taking over Hereford's football team, Evans inherits one of the most successful programs in Baltimore County - if not the state - from one of the best coaches to walk the sideline, Steve Turnbaugh, a two-time All-Metro Coach of the Year who guided the Bulls to three state titles and 11 state tournament appearances in 19 seasons. "I'm certainly not going to try and fill the shoes of the guy before me. He is a legend," said Evans, who spent the last eight seasons as a Hereford assistant coach and takes the reins Wednesday, the first day of practice for public school teams.

Jelani Roberts remembers watching Northwestern's Venric Mark a couple years ago. The speedy three-star receiver who will be a senior at Gilman this fall saw how Mark torched his opponents for more than 1,300 rushing yards and more than 600 combined return yards in 2012, scoring 14 total touchdowns. Most of all, it was Mark's size that drew Roberts to Northwestern's All-American return man. At 5-feet-8 and 175 pounds, Mark was by no means an intimidating figure, but he continued to produce highlight-reel worthy plays on the field.

The creation of Sunday's free Baltimore City Football Combine at Patterson Park began four years ago and came together through chance. Matt Wyskiel, founder of the financial advising firm Skill Capital Management, was mentoring a ninth-grade football player from Cardinal Gibbons. Wyskiel traveled with the player to football combines in Bethesda or Columbia - there weren't any combines in the city - and would pay out-of-pocket for the trip. For a lot of Baltimore football players, paying to participate in and travel to a combine wasn't feasible, and Wyskiel kept that in mind as he took a handful of his mentees across the state to combines over the past few years.

It's odd timing, but Maryland released the contracts of head football coach Randy Edsall's assistant coaches today even as the school continued its review of the program. The school has not ruled out staff changes. The timing was happenstance. We media bloodhounds had requested the pacts months ago and are receiving them now. These contracts sometimes take months to finalize. We got eight of the nine contracts today and were told that offensive coordinator Gary Crowton's pact was not yet available.

Did John Harbaugh ever get discouraged in more than 20 years as an assistant football coach? "He never once cracked," said his father, Jack, admiration flooding his face. "He never once blinked." Fortitude, an unwavering belief in a plan and in himself, a calm when others might panic - these are the traits players, coaches and family mention when asked why Harbaugh has succeeded. They helped him first become a head coach, then lead the Ravens to a surprise appearance in today's AFC Championship game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

To hear them tell the story, it was a classic case of love at first fight. In the early 1970s, Ralph Friedgen and Gloria Spina were graduate students at the University of Maryland, both pursuing master's degrees in education. They had mutual friends, and a mutual interest in each other. They had flirted a bit, shared a cup of coffee in the student union, and eyed each other during a badminton match in one of their physical education classes. She had grown up around sports, considered herself a jock, and though she lacked confidence, this guy made her laugh.

Ask Marquenta Taylor what it's like to be called "coach" by Meade High football players, and the normally loquacious woman takes a beat to ponder the question, as if you're asking what it's like to walk on the moon. Increasingly, though, the sound of the words "Coach Taylor" is becoming more familiar. "Now, some of the older guys call me coach. I'm waiting to see what happens the first time they see me in public. Like, if I go to the mall and somebody says, `What's up, Coach?' " said Taylor, a guidance counselor at the Anne Arundel County high school.

Coaching tough guy Bill Belichick, winner of three of the past four Super Bowls, left no doubt yesterday. His father was tougher. Steve Belichick, the longtime Navy assistant football coach and scout extraordinaire, was remembered during funeral services at the Naval Academy Chapel as flinty tough, indefatigable and fair-minded, not only by his successful son, but also by his former players and fellow coaches. "Steve knew football inside and out, plus he cared about you as a person," said former Navy and Detroit Lions coach Rick Forzano.
