Every coach I've asked say the same name, and he's not an out-of-stater.

That's an odd name.

Btw, I believe its the current Elkins coach who has SS ties.... He is wise to leave Elkins while the "gettin is good" cause Elkins will be a 3 or 4 seed at best in good years in 4A. Most of the time Elkins is finishing 5th or 6th in 4A.

SS could be a great turnaround story or a great disappointment to a guy trying to build a resume.  05 - 08 was a pretty good stretch for them, Ashcraft?  So what is the key to getting it turned?

Dawson had a good year there and then was followed by a few good years after he left I believe.  Something is missing.

Going to continue to be a tough place to win.  Schedule is pretty tough and the travel is a definite negative.  They have some nice new facilities.  Never hear anyone say much about whats up with that program.

Thats a tough conference and going to take some time and lots of work to get SS turned around and winning.  Whoever they hire better have a tough skin.

Any more news on this job?  I heard they weren't doing interviews until the end of January.

Been relatively slow for turnover.  Might want to see some chips start falling to see if they get some more qualified applicants.  Just a guess

I don't think it is that unusual to take this long amount of time, this is the way most schools seem to do it.  I don't think most schools see an urgent need, I disagree but I aint running the schools athletic departments.  Some schools don't want to hire any sooner than necessary because it means hiring, $$$ and more payroll expense as the ex coach is generally still on staff.  Besides spring ball is months away. 
Other than that I think they are in a tight for a really great hire and they want to get it right.  So many good points in that district yet so many obsticles for winning in football.

A good coach who can get the maximum effort out of the kids and the staff.  A system that will be good for the type kids they have and one that doesn't rely on one star to make it go. A few years of combined hard work and patience.  You cannot accept poor effort or performance and at the same time you have to realize its going to be step by step, some small some big.
