Lakeside (Lake Village)

How good of a job is this? Seem to have some talent, and the last coach seem to get them going in the right direction.

Great job if you can deal with players from Lake Village and Eudora fighting and don't expect any help from the administration. You do have great support from the 27 fans at home games and the 6 that travel.

Enough talent to win multiple state championships. Only needs someone to go in and put some discipline in and actually stay for more than a year. If the same coach stayed there for 5 years and half knew what he was doing I would say at least one state championship would not be a stretch.

Be ready to teach 7 classes, no junior high athletic periods, no administration support, bad pay, and a really tough conference. Other than that, it's a good job.

If you can understand the culture and get the kids to buy in, you can definitely win.  Norton did a great job this year, and I know he will be extremely successful at Rose Bud.  I just hope the administration doesn't make this a long process like most schools have done so far.  It is important that they hire someone who can relate to the kids and get them to buy into what they're teaching quickly!!!  If all of these things happen then Lakeside can be successful for an extended period of time.

Spot on - sadly.

With all due respect, you don't know much about the situation if you really believe that.

I know a little about the situation. I also know that there have been very few times I have seen them play when they didn't have the most athletic team on the field. We might not ever know if I'm right until someone who goes there and stays for a while and gets the kids believing in themselves we will never know.

Head coach and three assistant jobs open according to school website.  Kids say only remaining assistant looking, too.  Terrible.  Looks like we gotta replace all coaches from best season and first playoff since '06.

The problems here aren't talent or coaches.  We need new administrators.  No leadership or support for our kids.

They all accepted other jobs.  Have had several teachers in the high school quit, too.  My nephew is on his 2nd math teacher and 2nd english teacher this school year.

This seems like it would be the most attractive time this job has ever had.  Will be interesting to see how it shakes out..  You don't often here of entire staff's leaving after a fairly successful year.

A lack of administrative support can oftentimes doom an athletic department, and that is the case for this school as well.  From what I hear they are more caught up in the number of applications rather than finding the right candidate.  I was also told that the kids have bought into the assistant coach that remains, but instead of promoting him and keeping a high morale and stability they elected to go through tons of interviews.

Heard the assistant is a young coach, not much experience, but from the area I think.  Have heard several names, not sure if any are accurate or if my person really knows anything, appears it won't be much longer though.  New coach should have a lot to work with.  Lots of returners according to maxpreps roster.  Hopefully they get a guy that can keep them going in the right direction.

Not going to go there on here.  Not fair to those people if true.  I'm sure all of them currently have jobs.  But some experienced people have applied, not sure there is a "homerun hire" there, but maybe a solid candidate or two.  Heard they started interviews sauce, you heard anything on that.  DM if u want.

If all the staff but one left I would wonder if this is a job you really want?  Sure would like to find out why they left before saying yes.

This program has been bad for years. It's going to take someone from the area, that understands the athletes, the situation and the parents to build a program here. It's the same story every year about Lakeside   (Lake Village/Eudora). There are good athletes, no discipline, coaches act like they don"t care. Its going have to take a whole school community attitude for change to make this program.

You must not have saw them play. I saw every home game. Thought the organization and discipline was MUCH improved over the garbage two previous years. Coaches helped break a two year losing streak and make postseason for first time forever.  That is why Green needs to be hired.  He has support of kids, parents and the Eudora community.

Until the administration cares about football nothing will change. They had a good coach and didn't care.

How long has Green been coaching?  Wasn't he one of the young assistants on staff?  Previous experience?  Where is he from?

This job is not an experience job!! This job is about who can relate to the kids and get them to buy in!! As a member of the community I've watched coaches with 30+ years experience not win a game here.  So I take that word EXPERIENCE with a grain of salt. They just need to find the right fit for the kids!

While I agree with your sentiment of relating to kids, there are way more things involved in coaching football than JUST relating to the kids.  If he has all the necessary skills needed sure, but that doesnt mean they cant hire someone from the outside who could win the kids over.  Its all speculation at this point.  They should hire someone who will be there longer than one year for sure.  Maybe a young coach like green could stay and continue to learn from an experienced guy on the other parts of it and be the man in the future if it doesnt go his way now.  Good luck on this hire!  Seems to be a critical moment for the program.

Of course there is more to the job I'm sure there's not anyone on this thread that's ignorant of that fact.  I also know that the kids WON'T show up if the new coach is not someone that they know or like. I see these kids everyday and have heard them express this on multiple occasions around town.  X's and O's mean nothing when you don't have the players there.  If they don't go with Green, I hope whoever comes in truly understands the battle that they'll have to fight. I'm sure if you ask Green or any Coach that was on that staff, they could explain it to you.

I did see them play. The night i watched was players sitting on bench away from the team. It was just about whatever one had said about them.  I understand the program and what its going through. I was just saying that the new coach will need to win over the players, parents(fans), administration. They need a guy that will be committed for more than one year. The town, players, school  really needs that.

Who were they playing? Nobody said everything was perfect down here, but this year was a major improvement from what I've seen the last 4 years!!

When Lakeside played Smackover. They played them really tough. I could tell they had the talented kids. They just need someone to stick around longer than one year. But, that won't change until the administration starts to care..

I have the utmost respect for the L.V. athletes after watching them play this year, very physically gifted group of guys. I think if the program can find a way past the problems facing them (administration, coaching, etc.) then there is a bright future for L.V. football.

Community needs to sit down with the people running the school and explain how they feel about the football program and what they want for it in the future.  You know the school board is elected and the superintendent works at the favor of the board.  Parents make your wishes known.

All 7 fans at the away games could have a meeting.

It's so sad seeing 30 kids on the sideline and 8 fans in the stands. One kid got taken in an ambulance one year and he had no one there to go with him so they sent a coach.

I have heard the same rumor, may never know but if thats who i think it is he was not offered and im sure he would have taken it.  Not sure if he is a finalist or not, but i heard he interviewed and did well.  Name im hearing is also connected to lake village but he is older than the said 4A assistant.  Not sure where he works currently but i think he (older guy) has worked their before., not sure if 4a assistant did but i think so.

Now there are two different 4a assistants with ties to lake village i am told, so maybe one of the two was offered and declined.
