Interesting move!

Star city is a town that wants competitive football. Hot springs high....not certain they have a committed fan base. He will have that in Lincoln county and not have to fight the obstacles that school districts face in Garland county. School choice, etc.

May not be the hire some folks want in star city, but I bet the coach sees potential.

He should do well in Star City. Hot Springs is just a tough fit football wise. The Trojans have talented people. But it's always a distraction or discipline problem there. Good luck to both schools

The problem is there are too many good schools around hot Springs.  If you are any good you school choice out of there.

The problem is there is no good football teams around or in Hot Springs. Unless you count Malvern and Arkadelphia, but they couldnít school choice them.

I guess you could make a case for Lakeside being good but that is spotty at best and the south is a very weak conference top down.

Bottom line: Hot Springs=basketball school, Lakeside=baseball, Lake Hamilton=?...track

I remember when Beebe & Hot Springs met in the 2014 quarterfinals and thought there was a lot of talent on that Hot Springs team.  Surely, this program will be back very soon.

Former hot springs coaches after Joe Reese:

Jim Morgan-moved to admin
Ronnie Carter-moved to admin
Alfred Mohammed-test issues
Bill Timmons-moved to admin
Chris Vereen-the only one to get out

Seems like itís hard to win there and then even harder to get out of there and still coach.!

A little off-subject, but I'm doing some research and could use some help ...
Hot Springs High School named its football field after Tommy J. Holt, a former principal, in 1986. What was the stadium named before that?

DB might be best hire of the offseason.  Lot of energy, experience at a high level, kids love him.  He has the traits to get Hot Springs High competitive consistently.  Very good football coach, very good guy.  I highly doubt there were better candidates for this job than DB.

I did not intend it to be that way.  Some great hires this offseason, some very deserving guys.  Also guys who went 1-9 getting hired and a guy out of the profession getting hired, too.

My comments were related to the "fit".  I think DB is a tremendous fit at Hot Springs, seems to check all the boxes they need.  I think DB will be very successful there.

I remember playing against him when he played at England. He was just a sophomore then. And was clearly the best player on the team. He played at McClellan his Jr year, then back to England his sr year. I've known him for about 15 or 16 years now. Definitely has what it takes to get the job done. He has to get them to buy in now. Which will be the difficult part. But I definitely have all the Faith in the world he can get it done there. Has been at Camden, Gurdon and Bryant. So he definitely knows what it takes to be a winner.

Coach Burnett is a great hire regardless of the time of year the job was posted or available Coordinators and Head Coaches. He is a great man and great coach. His track program has been just as strong as his Defense. Regardless of the sport, some people can flat out coach and he is one of those people. Hot Springs will be immediately greatly improved under his leadership.

You obviously don't know what the heck you're talking about and you obviously don't know Coach Burnett. He was long overdue for a Head Coaching position. Camden Fairview messed up when they let him go after Coach James left.
