    With so many area teams undergoing head coaching changes, the Coast may not have seen a more important jamboree week then Friday's packed slate in quite some time.  They may not count toward the regular season win total, but new faces like Gulfport's John Archie and Biloxi's Katlan French now carry a little momentum into their opening contests next Friday.
