Title: 2017 Softball Jobs

I started a job thread on the baseball board and was asked to start one for softball as well. So if you hear of any softball jobs coming open please post them here. If you can, try and wait until it's posted somewhere. Hopefully that can curb some of the confusion and speculation. I will keep an updated list at the top of the thread as people post jobs.

Crossett (Head)
Jonesboro (Head-Filled) Josh Fleming

Thanks. I added Osceola to the list. I already had Vilonia on the list for an assistant job but not sure if there is an additional job open there as well?

Does anyone know why the Jonesboro coach is leaving? I saw them in the State Tournament and it seems to be a good coaching job and a good place to live.

I got that info from several reliable sources. I think they may be promoting from within for that job which is why it wouldn't be posted. But they have not made a move on that job yet that I know of so I may be taking it off of this list soon.

OB11 has the goods on this, they are hiring in-house, thus the reason it wasn't ever posted.

I'll say.  That is very major and IMO makes Paris the team to beat in that 3A conference.  For a while.

Russellville Head Coach has been filled by Collin Campbell. Was a football assistant at Augusta. Graduate from HU where he played baseball. His father Glen Campbell has won a state title as baseball coach at McCrory. I believe his wife, who played at Harding will be assisting him at Russellville as well. Correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.

Who got the Prairie Grove job?  I heard Lincolns softball coach was leaving?
Title: Re: 2017 Softball Jobs
Post by: hoghat62 on June 20, 2017, 02:04:19 pm
From what I heard is that the Lincoln Coach had submitted for the PG job and then pulled his name from the list after the parents got wind of it.

PG hired their assistant coach to take over - Not positive what her name is. First name I do believe is Brandi. :-\
Title: Re: 2017 Softball Jobs
Post by: nuttinbuthogs on June 23, 2017, 04:39:34 pm
Why would a coach pull his name from consideration because his kids parents found out? I assume you mean the Lincoln parents?  Heck if you applied we know you are trying to leave.  Besides, we are used to coaches leaving.
Title: Re: 2017 Softball Jobs
Post by: WHITEchicken on June 24, 2017, 12:08:46 am
Maybe the parents found out and begged him to stay. Who knows. Maybe the parent found out and told him they would step back and let him coach. That would could be huge

Why would the Lincoln coach want to leave? He has had good success the last few years and should next year as well. Has he had an opportunity to move up to a big school or to a traditionally good softball school?

I have learned that he went to PG HS and wanted to return to his High School.  Been just a 5-7 mile drive down the road.
