Happenings in Rabbitland?

In just very a short time everyone will see what type of character coach and mentor Morton will be.  If he comes in keeping any of the former staff then you will know where he stands and that McClure is really in charge behind scenes. IMO McClures ego doesn’t want another  AD to be successful that’s why he is always so heavily involved in the searches.  Not one coach that was on staff with McClure or Plunk better be left or you can put a fork in this one before he even begins. On the other hand if he does the right thing and cleans house the elite of Atlanta will scramble to replace him. Huge task ahead and I’m hoping he can turn this around but he has some major battles ahead to do so.   Politics is poisonous in Atlanta and I hope Morton’s inexperience as a AD isn’t a repeat of last year or the year before.

Why is McClure still involved at all?  Just curious

Have no clue He shouldn’t even be employed by the district.  Instead of firing him they created a position for him and up his pay I hear.   I don’t care who it is if they don’t do their job fire them.  The top 3 picks for the position walked due to this alone I hear. So they hire a young inexperienced guy that will do exactly as McClure advises him to just like Plunk did. The kids lose while the select few fatten their pockets.

Did McClure have years on his contract and they didn't just want to pay him off? Or they really wanted to keep him around? Not unusual to create some bogus position or move them to transportation or something until their contract is up. But if he's there for the long haul, that's a huge red flag

I’m not sure the particulars of his contract.  What I am sure of is the terrible discipline and culture he created for a decade. I don’t care if you have to get a loan from the bank you don’t keep a cancer around you eliminate it immediately. You dang sure don’t let him anywhere near new AD hires or much less a search committee. That’s absurd.

God forbid letting the guy stick around so his son can graduate from the schools hes gone to his whole life......... coaches are people too and we forget that as parents often

People like you are the real poison in Atlanta.

Coaches must be looked at from a business standpoint first and foremost.  They know going in full well what the consequences are. If you want to talk about his son what about the 100s of others kids that have not had the same opportunities because of politics created when he was in charge.   I’m sick of hearing sob stories. Do your dang job or you lose it just that the real world is.

Lol. You must be one of them.  Or are clueless and listening to the false  narrative. 

You spend time on a message board wanting people to lose their jobs. Sorry your kid sucks.

The staff can only deal with “discipline” as the head man allows. It is impractical to completely disintegrate an entire coaching staff. Are you talking about every sport boys and girls or just football. There are guys on the staff who are tremendous coaches. Let the new guy come in and evaluate but to arbitrarily say to get rid of every last one is a bit of a stretch.

So a new AD is hired. A coach that has not stepped foot into Atlanta yet. A coach that tons of people have said great things about and people are already on here mouthing. Parents and community members are already putting it in kids' heads that this guy shouldn't have the job and still connecting McClure as the excuse for any problems. Ah yea it seems like the coaches are the big issue in Atlanta.....

Sorry I wasn’t clear.  I’m speaking to the overall development culture and discipline in offseason and football.   I want the best for the kiddos and coaches but watching the program over last 5 years spiral is disheartening. Something must give.

I was just thinking something similar. The vibe on this thread is that people are split on the hire......... 

 

Good luck to the new AD/HFC. May need it.
