From afar, this appears to be a step up - why not seek a position at a higher classification school?

Seems like an upward move to me. Especially with Russellville coming off a state championship.

plus teacher retirement you don't receive in private schools.

Guy won a lot of games and every one hated him? Seems like some unrealistic expectations didn't help. Never good to be little brother to that other private school in LR, and then have them mercy rule you in your best season in a while. Be interested to see who they hire. Some good talent

Getting coaches to pull out of the teacher retirement system and take a (probably) lower paying job is no easy feat.

I'm sure they do. But they don't have to tell anyone what they pay them. They are protected from sharing that information. AAA should make them disclose it, I think.

Why should a private school have to provide how much it pays its coaches?

Middleton has been named interim from what I understand and Johnny Watson has been interviewing candidates (I think three to this point).  He isn't rushing and plans to have someone in place by late March.

I guess if someone knocks it out of the park, it could be sooner of course.

Because they participate against public schools and compete for the state championships under what is considered to be a government organization. Public schools must disclose this information and private schools should as well if they want to play under AAA. To compete under AAA, they should be forced to remove their protective shields regarding all aspects of their sports.

AAA has nothing to do with publics disclosing salaries. So, why would you need to in order "to play under AAA"?  It's just the law that publicly funded organizations must disclose.  You think there should be a law that private organizations have to disclose salaries to the public?

The NCAA doesn't require this. Do you know what Vandy pays its coaches? No, you don't. It's a private school.

Of course they don't. But AAA is a state actor because of the Nexus it has with public schools.. They should require it for schools to participate.

So anyone that does business with a state actor has to disclose all their salaries? That's not the law.

That's painting the picture with pretty broad strokes. They aren't merely doing business with AAA, they are competing in their league and it's the only league  a they compete in.  AAA absolutely has the power to make this happen. Privates shouldn't mind. The state actors are subject to FOI requests to get this information, and it's required by public, but not private. You want to compete against public schools, have countless advantages, and not be subject to the same requirements. That is why Kelley is still at PA. He knows his system won't work anywhere else. That's why he hasn't taken any of the "numerous job offers" from colleges. You can argue all you want, which is understandable. Have to defend your school. But it doesn't change anything about the flawed system and the reason why private schools have had great success in sports not only in Arkansas but across the entire country.

I've gotta take a break for a few months..Have a busy time coming up. So you can respond and make your silly excuses, flawed arguments, and pretend the success is based on something other than the crazy advantages y'all have, but I won't be able to respond until August or so. Until then, enjoy the boards! Don't miss me too much.

The AAA has no ties to the state government.  I am pretty sure it is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, but may be wrong on that.  How many times have you seen the executive director's salary and benefits posted?

isnt that why most of your major college conferences have at least 1 private college in the conference so that they dont have to disclose information?

Madison is now 4A in Alabama (finished its first year) but it was 3A when Cohu was there and won state titles.  It is a Church of Christ based school.  They have a very good record of success and several athletes sign scholarship offers every year.  They had about eight this year, including a dback, who signed with Harding, and another player signed with Auburn. 

He resigned from Madison after the 2015 season to coach over in Israel.  In the past his offense of choice is a pro-style base.

The other candidate was an assistant at Jenks High School in Tulsa.  Middleton, the interim coach and offensive coordinator, did apply for the job.
