IMO, hire needs to be outside the circle. Something fresh.

Interesting. Do they hire within and keep the same system intact, or hire new blood and change things up? Personally, I think they need to hire someone who coaches with intensity, fire and a cut throat mentality! They haven’t had that since Jeff left.

Gilmer changing anything would be a surprise. Gilmer prides in tradition and I would be shocked if they hired anyone without Gilmer ties or inside hire. Someone who can have that swagger and charisma of Jeff, but still run the same system is what I expect

If they hire within would it be Alan Metzel?

No telling how many will apply for this job.

Do you think they will go with a proven HC or a very good coordinator?

Might as well keep Holmes then. 

Can’t keep him he if leaving to make more money. Oh well it is a moot point now.

This is exactly what I think we need.  I'm not sure if the board will spend the money to bring a big name, proven head coach, though.  My inclination is to say they won't, which is sad.  We need somebody who will hold the coaches and the players accountable for lack of preparation and performance, and instill the discipline we have sorely missed the last 3 or so years.  I'm not sure if we have somebody on the staff now that has that ability or not.  If they hire within, which I kinda hope they don't, it'll likely be Alan Metzel.

that's exactly what I would say...as far as THE ONLY internal candidate...but I'd rather see them go outside for possibly a bigger name with fire. Now Drennan or the T-High coach might be quite interested. Art Briles comes to mind with the faith & forgiveness GHS has.

Going to be interesting next year for sure. Turner was a good man and hope he enjoys retirement. Whoever comes to play I hope they are intense and can coach these guys up to gain max potential. We will see.

By the way, I felt like I already knew who Matt was talking about, but I wasn't going to put it out there until it was official.

I wonder if any big names out there are interested?

That's what worries me.  It may not be "truly open".

Yeah, Metzel and Barr have to be the first coaches asked to lead. Lane at PT would be next I would think

I do not know who or what Matt is referring to but I know kids were told today of one HC leaving. It’s how Matt Stepp  described “Pretty High Profile school”

. Depending on who they hire to replace him there could be 2 HC open up.
