Don’t be surprised if Hooks from Osceola doesn’t take the job. A graduate of RC and a really good coach. But then again Osceola can contend every year in 3A and might be a little tougher for RC moving up to 4A

For over a $10,000 pay cut? Can anyone explain why there is such a discrepancy in pay between the two schools?

I have no idea. I just hope he doesn't leave, if he does I will understand that move. He really changed the culture in Osceola and the city is behind the kids,  coaching staff and football program. We'll see what will happen soon

If you go outside of current assistants I'd love to see RJ or Justin Smith. Just don't think Rivercrest has enough titles to add to the job to make it even near their salaries. The fact that it is only a 190 day contract is ridiculous.

Too much money spent on asst superintendent and vehicle? Too many people in district office? O
Making up 50,000 dollar position for good old boy network? Or maybe just not wanting to flirt with financial distress? Rivercrest teacher position have always been low salaried.

Would be a pay cut for both for sure! That's why our district has been so fortunate, most of our coaches have grown up in the small towns and worked in district basically their career.

Osceola has the flow of money from factories and business to pay teachers, and to get a new facility every other year. Rivercrest is made up of several much small towns with small business. It's like trying to compare apples to oranges.

There are some tricks to get around that payroll issue.  If they want to get more money into the position to get a quality guy they can find a way.

We have been very fortunate to have had the string of quality coaches we have had that have stayed home, but its hard to keep them when you can be a 7th grade coach in your first year at Marion or West Memphis and make nearly as much as a varsity head coach of a 4A program

Really?  So being able to pay bills and take care of your family doesn't figure in?   How many coaches turn down big paychecks to move to another school?

If one is worried about paying bills, teaching and coaching isn't the profession they should've chose! I don't have a problem paying my bills, yet I don't get paid for coaching!! You don't get paid much for coaching as it is anyways, you get paid to be an instructor, coaching is supplemental. So I say again, if you're doing what you love, and in 90% of teaching and coaching is what it is consisted of someone would make a sacrifice. I grew up with a father that spent 40+ years teaching and coaching, don't talk to me about sacrifices. I know what the cost and toll it has on a family. I know the many hours that is spent in a film room, or drawing up practice plans or back then when films must be traded hand to hand. We don't have much to offer in this area, that's why we're so good at what we do. They want it more than others and deserve someone that will stand by them as other coaches for many years, not just a stepping stone to somewhere else.

I see your point, I just don't necessarily agree.  I think most people know coaches spend lots of time, more than they get paid for but I think coaches should stop being satisfied with the really bad pay and really long hours and time away from family.  Seems they should push for more money, more reward for the work.  I think they deserve it.

Someone may need to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think extended contract days was brought before the board by some of the coaches at Rivercrest. Not sure if anything happened with it though.

I'm not sure about that, but it is a way to add much deserved compensation to the coaches salaries.  BTW, not just the HC spends the time and hours working.  Would be nice to see assistants salaries rise as well.

I may be wrong, but I think Photobucket stopped supporting third party hosting or something like that. I know I used to put Tweets up on here. You may still be able to use the URL of a Tweet but I'm not sure. Haven't tried in a while.
