Dierks Coaching Search Begins

Just heard that Perrin is quitting, along with Sprick.  I think I know, but what the heck is going on in Hardscrabble...

I'm not suprised by either move...

The new coach will need the same work ethic as Parrin with more desire to be loyal to the program.

Perrin leaving shouldn't surprise anyone....that's what he does. 2 years here, 2 or 3 years his own gym, a year or 2 here or there. He's a coaching gypsy. I have no problem with him doing what's best for him, I'm just ashamed that some didn't heed the warning , and act surprised now that this has happened. I do really hate it for the kids that bought into what he was selling, and put in the hard work.

Strickland is a great football coach. He has had success as assistant and a head coach. The only concern is his contract with Mineral. I would assume he has already signed it but I'm not sure.

Surely they would let him out. Schools can get a bad reputation for not letting assistants be released for head coaching positions

Maybe we should wait until they post the position and see who applies.

I don't know a lot of Strickland's history, but it seems like he seems to stay at a school once he takes the job. Besides, he is a head coach. He's the head baseball coach at Mineral Springs.
Maybe he is looking forward to working with an old friend as he tackles the challenge of building a baseball program in a school where they haven't had a reputation for baseball.

Maybe Dayton Kitchens is looking to move home? The last time an alum moved back Dierks had a pretty good run.

My understanding (and this is just hearsay)...it sounds to me like Perrin needs to coach at a bigger school...I feel like he just wants to coach football without the hassle of everything else that comes along with being at a small school...poor Attendance...not fulfilling obligations...heard the school board wasn't happy...they felt he needed to be reprimanded...he didn't agree and he quit...

Doesn't Dierks have a pretty solid team coming back?  I thought they were returning some pretty good kids next year.

Dierks lost about 15 seniors from last years team The towns people there would like for everyone to think that they gonna be down, but they are nearly always in the hunt come November.

Strickland will be in green today at the scrimmage.  Good luck fellas!  I'm hoping he likes what he sees and stays with us.  Teachers Contracts are not binding until June 13 even if signed.  Tough situation trying to fill all those positions this late.

If I recall correctly about 10 years ago Lafayette County hired a new head coach just a week before the season started and made the playoffs.

I believe the Outlaws will be alright. 3 coaches in 4 years isn't the plan but plans change all the time. Good luck to coaches departing and good luck in search for replacements.

Always great to be an Outlaw. Thanks for the well wishes Mike.

From SW Arkansas News:

Dierks Superintendent Holly Cothren announced today (Thursday, May 18) that Outlaw head coach and athletic director, Vince Perrin, has submitted his letter of resignation.

Perrin, who replaced David Bennett, was hired in June 2016 to head up the Outlaws. He led the team into the first round of the playoffs with a record or 6-5. Perrin’s resignation will become effective May 31.

Also this week, head Outlaw baseball coach Stephen Sprick is expected to officially submit his resignation.

Sprick told The Nashville News-Leader earlier this week that he has accepted a position with the Horatio School District where he will be an assistant baseball coach and the football team’s defensive coordinator.

Sprick led the Outlaw baseball team for four years and collected 74 wins, three undefeated conference championships, one regional tournament championship, three district tournament championships and was chosen as Coach of the Year three times.

He was at a bigger school a couple years ago, it didn't work out too well.
