What's everyone hearing on who's applying for this MP Chapel Hill job.  Should be able to get a good Basketball coach with the success they've had.  

Every basketball coach that hates coaching or dealing with football is applying for this job.

They should. Football gets in the way of a lot of good basketball coaches across the state.

If they’re so excited about basketball then maybe they should consider a move to Indiana, North Carolina, Kentucky, or Kansas. This is Texas

And some schools consistently put out a better basketball product than football. It’s just the facts.

Eh maybe. Or its an excuse.

A lot of basketball only schools from 1A to 4A lost to schools with football. 

Lets look at the state tournament for small schools: 1A: Jayton, Benjamin, and Gordon all had deep football runs. 2A: New Home, Thrall, Shelbyville all have football, 3A:Holliday, Ponder, Cole and Hitchcock all have football. 4A: Stafford, Silsbee, and Randall have football. 

I think its more so no one really wants to invest the time and effort into something they don't enjoy (if they coach football). Or if there is an opportunity to be around a school and culture that matches what your passion you want to do it. You get to be the AD and your the primetime of the community. Also yes you don't have to share kids.

More like basketball coaches get in the way of lots of football programs across the state.

I know Benjamins key player did, MVP of the state football game. I'd imagine that's true for all the 1As just by numbers available. Not going to look every one up but Shelbyville every kid but one is listed on both max preps rosters. The point being football and basketball can coexist. Whether its sharing kids or not. And the idea of that football is killing good basketball coaches is a common excuse for bad basketball coaches to use. Does it happen? Sure. Do most HFC only care deeply about football? Yes. Do most basketball coaches only care deeply about basketball? Also yes. That's why this is an attractive job. Only do what you care about doing.

First  year  of coaching I was at a district meeting and they were discussing different types of schedules and a basketball only school was there. Something was said about football and the basketball coach from the school spouted off “we didn’t ask any school to play football “. Some of the coaches laughed and some were —well not so happy. Yep , a classic difference!

Didn't post to hear people's Philosophy of Basketball vs Football, just wondering who is applying for the job?! 

Sorry instructions were unclear. You should have posted "I want names only no discussion about anything else on a discussion forum"

Hearing rumors from very credible sources that Daniel Swaim is trying is hand at coaching roundball. Good lord if my sources are correct than the basketball world is fixing to get turned upside down and inside out as Swaim shows all these people what its all about. You see he's an old fool from the old school. He played basketball and the was on the A team. Or maybe he just meant he was on a team. Never got clarification on that one. He could coach the basketball team and then run right out there and coach the soccer team as well. That is just the kind of man Daniel the Legend Swaim is.
