We’ve lucky over here in Lovelady for a while. Having Coach T , Coach Lowery And Coach  K. Before them it was a different coach every year like Colmesneil is. 

It is not easy and Administration is very important in the decision.

IMHO, the key is to find that guy that can come in and establish the culture and win enough to keep the natives happy on a yearly basis. Then on those occasions when there is a good crop of Athletes make the most of it with a decent run in the playoffs in multiple sports to keep the wolves at bay.

While playing Russian roulette politics with some community members with unrealistic expectations, the chosen one must also hire a young coach or two with the idea that they are going to mentor them in a way that prepares them to take over when he leaves. It is much easier for an AD/HFC to hire his own replacement than it is for non sports focused Admin.

Yes, and then there are the small schools who have been stable with coaches and win consistently and make the playoffs.  However, the wolves are mad that they did not go far enough in the playoffs or perhaps did not win at the highest level and seek change in the HC.

These are the ones that really cause me to question the intelligence of some people.

Change for the sake of change

or

Change because some influential individuals have an agenda

Are two of the WORST reasons to force a Head Coach of any sport out of town.

Be careful what you ask for, because what you get may not be.......

Small school admin kills towns in Texas all the time as of late.

Very much. There seems to be common trend in smaller towns of wanting "their guy" regardless of results afterwards.

@ThatOneBallCoach12 Bulldog Country Cafe was going to offer him a daily all he could eat buffet until they ran the numbers and figured out 20lbs of potato salad a day would bankrupt them.

Well......

He's actually coming in from no where cause.......

Coach Ramsey has 11 years of head coaching expereince with stops at Cross Plains, Ranger, Detroit, Electra, Merkel, Morton and Bruceville-Eddy...

Some really tough gigs probably places into the career record of 26-86....3 yrs is his longest stint as a HC in one spot....and knowing Colmesneil's penchant to not keep coaches around long I'll be curious to see how long he hangs around

Man those are some real powerhouses he has been a head coach at. Kind of a head scratcher that he keeps getting head coaching gigs, but like I said, those are some powerhouses. He will be at Colmesneil as long as the other jobs. Way to knock it out of the park dogs.

and I didnt post this to say Coach Ramsey is a bad coach, he's a good guy and I haven't covered his teams enough to know one way or the other...its mainly to say he's coached at some REALLY difficult jobs, not sure Belichick or Saban would do much better at those places...

 

But you have a guy who hasn't been in one place long and a school that doesn't keep coaches around long...which means he'll be there 15 years now lol

You are probably right, prior actions are not indicative of future decisions.

Preface, I do not know Coach Ramsey and in no way am I indicting his character, work ethic or integrity.

I will go out on a limb here and say that he must be a great interviewer. The only way you get that many chances is to be able to sell ice to Eskimos. 

Now as for staying power, there is not a positive indicator that says that this will be anything more than a 1 or 2 year gig for him.

But, I have been mistaken before. Good luck to Coach Ramsey and to Colmesneil.
