Coach Strickland is a great coach and man.  I was told that someone put something on here about him.  I have not been on this site in many, many years.  I do not know if I have ever posted.  However,

Here is the truth of the matter...like it or not.  If you are interested in developing/continuing a successful program you either need to hire Kerry Strong from Big Sandy and get ready to start rollin

He won’t get it. Some board members got some good looking wives.

Is it fair to question why a coach left a 1-9 team after two seasons? We just had a coach leave a state finalist team after two seasons and no one questioned his decision. Yeah I’m sure that there will be people who get their feelings ruffled about this statement but it a valid question. Simple answer is all coaches are human and at the end of the year they all do what they feel like is best for them and their family. No one is perfect, if the worst thing someone can find to say about him is he has high standards and he holds his kids accountable then how bad can he be.

Well damn fellas I’m nervous now. I was reviewing our schedule. I don't think we'll make it out of District with a winning record. Might not win a District game. For sure no playoffs for us. I may move to Daingerfield and jump on that bandwagon...go Tigers! 

Dang NB!! Wow! 😱😉😂

You are misinformed.  He did not get a raw deal at Overton.  He came is season one and went 9-3.  Lost to Carlisle (on two pick 6 tds) Teneha, and Bremond in Rd2.    But even with a solid group coming back, he started interviewing for other jobs (which some didn't  like, but its part of the profession). The next season we were preseason #10 which was fairly accurate.  Maybe a little high, but for sure we were a top 20 team. Then the bottom fell out... We lost our starting QB b/c he changed schools to pursue basketball, and the other kid mentioned that was dismissed from the team was probably gonna be the district MVP, and a couple of all-district o-linemen decided not to play.  Not to mention Colmesneil dropped us and we had to replace them with San Augustine who was as one of the best 2A div 1 teams in the state.   Yes his back was against the wall, and yes a 1-9 season will definitely make you want to look for something better.  But he was always supported by the admin and by all the parents that I talked to.  

All true...

Hey. Arkansas cow tipper. You looking ahead already to Henderson? Well don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split ya. You was forced to keep the OC? The guy that was the OC of the nations best rushing attack not good enough? He’s forgot more about football than you’ll ever know. Say @EastTxFinest I won’t be using these on y’all this year bud.

No he isn’t leaving. Word gets out though about folks private feelings and they don’t line up with the 💩 they’re shoveling publicly.

Where is this article where he said he was forced to keep the OC or wants to go to Henderson? Or was that just something said it town?

Gotta admit, wasn't sure how the PP offense would mesh with new guy's philosophy. Figured they'd work it out though. Guess I was wrong?

Gotcha. There are definitely some things you better not say out loud in a small town.

Isn’t no damn article. But in a town of 1,200 💩gets out quick. Nobody is a bigger homer than me. I’ll lie on here if I think it helps build my team up but nobody is gonna disrespect Kumrow and I not say nothing.

Most coaches want to bring their own coordinators in. That's just the way it is. BUT I would imagine he knew going in to PP that is was expected he keep the same OC and same offense. 

Nope
