They need to just go hire Darryl Burnett and stay out of his way.

That would be a HR for England but probably a step down for Burnett

Farmer knew talent level was going to drop, can't blame him for that.

Brandon Barbaree has had a ridiculous number of jobs.

The other two, I have no idea.

Coach Garrett will land on his feet, England will bring in a good coach.  Situation stinks, but its part of the business.

Previous poster called out board members - the Cheeks obviously - but it would have taken more than two votes to make a move and usually an administrator recommends such action.  Unfortunate, but its happened many places in addition to England.
The funny thing about that statement is Farmer told me numerous times that the talent was still there it was the work ethic and attitude of the kids that would hold them back. The real reason Farmer left wasn't a drop off in talent it was not being able to get along with the administration.  Now for those of you that don't know Farmer sometimes he is not the easiest man to get along with. So I'm sure it was a little on both sides.

 Probably would be step down for Burnett but experience and home town man would be great. Heard brother planned this with Garrett and all but one followed suit. Bunch of egos that think they should compete for a state title every year. I heard it was a bunch of meetings outside they meeting for this to happen.

I just canít imagine Burnett leaving his spot to go to a job nobody wanted last spring. Hometown or not. They are most likely going to end up with someone similar to Garrett

Been hearing his name throughout the community for years. I moved to town right after he graduated, but heard about him while he was at Henderson playing football. Every year since he graduated Iíve heard his name pop up. Each year I hear it more and more. I truly hope they consider trying to pull him home.

He'd have to to take a pay cut and leave a pretty coveted job that will set him up for a big time job down the road to walk into a dumpster fire.  Not saying he's not coming, but he if does he really loves England.

They ran the baseball coach out of town a year after they brought home their first baseball trophy in how long.  Now they run off a young, promising coach 9 months into the job.  The dumpster is ablaze my friend.

It always baffles me how communities will do this to people. Do they not realize how bad it makes them look? This reminds me of the Magnet Cove thread last year. Just doesn't make sense

Ain't that the truth.  Not going to worry about stomping on a coach's career, family, etc. as long as they get what they want for their kid.

I donít think it was a trophy. Maybe league runner up. But they did make the region for the first time in a long time.

I think they made regionals as 4th place team a couple of times. England has made regionals fairly regularly in baseball.
I agree with your main point, but don't exaggerate.

Regardless. Unless something happened that no one is willing to talk about, and I don't think it has. It's hard to justify getting rid of a coach less than a year after you hire him. I go back to one if my earlier post...ENGLAND LOOKS REALLY BAD IN THIS!

They were 8 points away from being a 2 seed and minimum 7 win team. Season could have been a lot worse. Hopefully this decision was not made due to record.

If they are expecting what they had for the previous 2 seasons they will forever underachieve! Not saying they can't be good, and be good for long periods of time, but that group of seniors was special. Those groups don't come around all the time! Do they not remember where or what they were before that group came through!?

Why would he leave Bryant to go to England? He would have to really love his alma mater or they would have to open their pocketbooks. My bet is that he makes more now as a DC than he would as their HC

Of course they've gone after him.  Thats a foregone thought.  The question is could they somehow convince him to even consider that step down?

Looks like DB is making around 58,000 at Bryant. Last HC at England was making around 47,000 with additional $5000. If Iím reading the contracts correct. But sometimes itís not always about money why someone takes a job.
