Rumor Mill
« on: January 15, 2018, 08:53:39 am »
Of course I'd like it to be more reliable than a rumor, but......... What job openings do you guys think will happen this off-season?  I'll start by saying I've heard more than once that Deer has a girls coach who is going to get the boot.

Kinda early for all that stuff...
Unless you got legit resignations, retirements, reassignments already being processed by the boards.

because of the obvious... most coaches are trying to get through the season.  most schools don't want the negative drama during the most important time of the season due to rumors.  now, when the last game's over, its free game

I am not aware of any pending retirees.  You never know on those deals until season is over.  With the economy being good and the housing market good, you figure there will be several moves take place after spring break into May.

Wish I was a bookie...

I'd be taking bets right now.  If his grandson is a senior, and they win state, sure, i can see that.  Otherwise, I'd bet $1,000 on him still calling the Thunderbird defense next year...

Na....hes done...Woulda called it a career last year if his grandson would have been a senior on that team. Would have been a good ending to a long and successful career.

Guy-Perkins.  Been there since Dr Naismith invented the game.  Has an auction service and numerous rental properties in the G-P area to accommodate any talented move-ins with the Thunderbird discount.  Has used numerous gimmicks in games throughout the years that are quite entertaining you won't see anywhere else.  One year was state runner up with all underclassmen, the next year had five new starters move in and won state.

Maybe so, but he did take a team to NYC back in the 80's, might've been best girls team he ever had, and played host team Christ the King, back in their hayday, and I can't remember if they won,  but I know it was close.  Not many coaches have the fortitude to do so

I'm sure it will be, and they did not beat that NYC team they lost by 10, but a close 10 if you know what I mean. He also won the overall State Championship in 84 with girls. Honestly, I feel bad for the next man up.. coming in after stats like his puts pressure on ya.

They need a set up guy to replace him.  A clown who doesn't know their role.  Even if for just one year.  Then, they can get someone who will be legit, and would either be willing to kiss the rings on Hutch's fingers for loyalty, or, buy all of Hutch's rental properties.

Well, I mean, I don't know abt all that lol. I want to see a good coach come in and do good, but it does apply pressure on someone who is taking over after a man who's been there.. what? 40 odd years and won the amount of games he's won.

What i'm getting at is... you don't want to be the guy that replaces a legend, unless you know you've got the support of the outgoing legend, and the talent level to win big immediately to keep from looking like a clown.

Normally, you want to be the guy that follows the clown who replaced the legend.  So, long as you have some talent to work with at that point.

I am not speaking in absolutes here, but I cannot think of very many coaches who have been successful after replacing a long time legend.  Coleman has done well at LR Hall after replacing legendary Coach George Cirks, who waited till August of tht year to retire to ensure that Coleman would be able to be promoted from asst to interim HC.

But it is a difficult task.

I see both sides of it really And yes, he has done well. I just don't want to see a man who doesn't know what they're talking about coaching. I feel like ole Hutch will recommend somebody good cause you know they'll ask him.

I'll say this...he won't run much of anything more complex or structured than what they do under Hutch. So might actually work. Plus he's worked at about 8 different schools, so a lot of connections on continuing to bring kids in. And that's in all seriousness, joking aside.

Daddy Eagle , dont matter how many openings you have,  you have to be able to hire a coach.  You have had some last few years and who did you hire.  West Side is a good school, however too many folks helping run the athletic department.  A good coach not interested in that type operation.  Always have great talent coming up.  Now some of the girls have left.

If you think that only happens at Westside, you are delusional.  I'd say that's the case at most 1A schools.

Question about Hutch.  When is the last time one of his girls teams was relevant?  I know he has had the talent flowing on the boys side of things, while he still has grandkid's rings to consider, what about the girls though?

Couldn't answer that question... I would hope so.. I would like to see a girls coach coach 7th through 12th and same for the boys.. but I'm not in the position to have a say so in it. So I couldn't tell ya.
