Weckler ‘destined to go to DeKalb’
On Tuesday night, Matt Weckler was approved by the DeKalb School District 428 board as the new football coach at DeKalb. Weckler coached six seasons at Belvidere, leading the Bucs to a 31-29 record and four playoff appearances in that span. Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson talked with Weckler about his plans for the Barbs’ football program. Here’s an edited transcript:
Daily Chronicle: Why DeKalb? What had you excited about it and what drew you to the job?
Weckler: When I moved out to Belvidere and got the job, the DeKalb job opened up a couple times when I was actually coaching here. That’s when I had little bit less experience than what I do now and I applied for those jobs as well and it was unfortunate I didn’t get in for those jobs either.
