  1. Is he tranferring or did he move into the district? Big difference.
  2. Who would be on the hiring committee? The librarian, band director, head of maintenance, moms and dads of upcoming players, booster club president? Most people do not have the experience to even ask appropriate questions in a coaching interview. I didn't interview a lot, but when I was before a committee I was always amazed with some of the questions that were asked that had nothing to do with the job. Let the people who will be held accountable for the supervision of the employee do the hiring then actually hold them accountable for the outcome.
  3. In the small schools that I've been a part of, the AD will find the candidates and come up with his selection. Then the high school principal (or MS principal for that campus) will interview that candidate as well to make sure they can do the job in the classroom. Typically, the superintendent will support the recommendation coming from the AD and principal and make the recommendation to the board. Now, I know not everyone has the same experiences that I've had at small schools, but the teaching aspect has always been a part of the decision because as schools get smaller in faculty size, th
  4. It would have to be the third generation...the dad and 5 boys are no longer coaching.
  5. You keep applying for jobs...work on expanding your network of contacts...act professionally at all times because people are always watching...get with an AD/HFC who is part of a coaching tree...don't get frustrated if the first job takes a while...attend as many clinics as possible...meet with as many coaches as possible...attend as many events as possible so you can meet other coaches...always speak well of your current school/district/boss/community or else remain quiet...be the best assistant coach on every staff that you're on...pray for peace no matter where you end up.
  6. I guess a few Gilmer fans forgot 2014 when they scored 80+ twice and 70 in another game...if you're going to run it up you shouldn't gripe when it happens to you.
  7. How did he get a raw deal? He had his contract extended at Overton and left on his own to return to Arkansas.
  8. Which schools will be effected by today's changes to UIL Division I and 2 enrollment in both 4A and 5A?
  9. Dr. Nichols is one of the brightest lights in the superintendent world....I'd trust him with pretty much anything when it comes to school business and that includes finding a good fit for the coaching position.
  10. Sabine Pass-Hull Daisetta-Evadale-Burkeville-Deweyville-Colmesneil-West Sabine (possibly Tenaha) Tenaha-Mount Enterprise-Cushing-Overton-Cross Roads-Wortham (maybe Frost or Lovelady if Tenaha goes south) Maud-Clarksville-Bowie-Detroit-Boles-Cumby Lovelady-Iola-Snook-Somerville-Bremond-Chilton-Mart-Frost (Lovelady or Frost or both could move)
  11. I've been employed in 8 districts beginning in the 70's (and I'm still going) and I've never been in a school that had terrible conditions where admin didn't support teachers with difficult kids. I don't think every school fits your description...certainly not the ones I've been in. I don't doubt there are some that have that issue, but please don't make it out to be all public schools because I know that is not the case.
  12. There is also the scenario that the opposing team ran the score up on Thursday night (JV-JH) when there really is a chance for a huge imbalance of talent and now they are just getting pay back. Most coaches hate games that are blow outs. Once you have a game won you are looking ahead and don't want someone to get hurt in a game that is already in the win column.
  13. AT&T is awesome....Mr. Jones does a great job in putting on the games....but remember that the most important thing is that high school athletes are playing for a state championship and the metroplex schools do get an advantage when the game is played in their neighborhood every year...bigger fan base...less travel...more fans plus a lot of the top 5A-6A schools in the area play there either in playoff games or pre-season games. There is some advantage to playing in a place with which you are familiar. If the sites were rotated to the other domed stadiums then the Gulf Coast and San Anto
  14. What does West Sabine have? They just beat Grapeland so they can't be a slouch.
