The Greyhounds are proud to have Coach Ward coming back home. He should bring some much needed energy back to the Marmaduke boys program. Looking forward watching him try to rebuild the boys program.

You have to get them to senior high before they can win in senior high. His younger players when he was at Marmaduke ended up beating Marmaduke because they played for Rector when they were older. A lot of others and a lot of great kids from great families quit all together. Some 4.0 + students who were good players because they liked to study more than play basketball. The 24/7 365 coach is the perfect description of him. Very few kids can play 48-50 weeks a year and if he's your senior high coach that is just what it is with no compromises. If you can't do it he will recruit players from other schools to replace you. He is and always will be (the grass is always greener on the other side) guy. Oh and you can forget playing volleyball, softball or track or any other sport. If you hire him you'll love him the first few years and then good luck. He is however one of the best coaches anywhere at teaching young kids fundamentals of the game. If you want him for his daughters you had better wait until the are a little older because they will be playing for another school before they graduate. Don't just take my word for it research his record everywhere he's been. Best thing he did at Marmaduke was to bring Coach Smith over here, we will be forever grateful for that, because we wouldn't have won the state without him and his leadership over the years.

Red Rider, This Coach Smith you seem to think so highly of..........................Is this the same Coach Smith that the self-proclaimed Royal Family of Marmaduke made move off their property after a heated dispute over the amount of playing time their Princess was receiving as a Sophomore? Is this the same Coach Smith that the self-proclaimed Royal Family of Marmaduke leveled false allegations of an affair against in hopes he would be fired? Is this the same Coach Smith with a leadership style that so upset a member of the self-proclaimed Royal Family of Marmaduke that he quit his elementary coaching job and sent his resignation letter to the Daily Press?  Just wondering. You seem to have a much better opinion of him than they do.

Manila should announce on the girls opening within 36-48 hours. I would venture to say, there will be some VERY surprised people. We had 3 candidates who have won state championships, really surprised me with talent level that is going to be down for a few years. A 12 month contract & $5k stipend don't hurt though.
Got me to thinking who has won a State Championship (in the area) who would have applied. So my guesses are the following, don't know all their names so I'll just list the schools:
Marmaduke- talent starting to run low, may be looking to get out now.
Riverview - who knows, nothing suprizes me anymore
Paragould - great run, not sure what he has coming back
Mt. View - won in 2011, looking for a new scenery?
Calico Rock - won in 2011, same as above?

So my guess is one of these 5? Plus Manila prolly pays as much if not more than all these schools.

You obviously don't know much about Marmaduke. The Royal family in Marmaduke is a former supt and his family, not the one you are talking about. I guess from what I've witnessed here the former elementary coach that you mentioned since that time I've saw them coaching together many times over the past few years including the last few weeks, so apparently they have put all that behind them and seem to me to be pretty close friends. I know both of them and they both worked hard to get to the same goal and had some disagreements along the way but they did achieve their goal which has been all of ours here at Marmaduke for many years. Knowing both of them and considering both of them friends, I know both of them have put the past in the past and both of them are working toward more state championships for Marmaduke. If you don't believe that just open your eyes and watch what they are this spring and summer.

This former Supt. you speak of...............Is this the same Supt. that the Patriarch of the self proclaimed Royal Family stopped speaking to after the former Supt. supported his son-in-law for the School Board instead of the Patriarch of the self proclaimed Royal Family? Is this the same Supt. that got the Patriarch and his son a job with the housing authority and the Patriarch's daughter-in-law a job at the school?

I know quite a bit about Marmaduke, but it does seem like you know more about these specific incidents than I do.  It's almost like you have first hand knowledge. LOL

Very interesting...hired the young lady with no head coaching experience over the 3 coaches who have won state championships?? But she is a fowler and I'm sure she will do great. Sometimes hiring experience isn't the beat option. I think she will be a good fit there

Just because they interviewed folks with great resumes doesn't mean those folks were genuinely excited to take the job.  She may have had the most passion for embracing the situation.

Woodland and Ramay 8th Grade Jobs are open and didn't know how much interest that would draw from lower level high school head coaches. Have heard some other smaller schools in NWA may be available in the next few weeks but those are just ramblings.

Colossal mistake on the part of Brookland administration.  Parents will not go for the screaming and belittling of players on a regular basis.  Nettleton had apathy toward their program and parents didn't care and there was very little fan support.  So, he didn't encounter a lot of negativity from parents because they didn't care anyway.  But, Brookland whose fans are extremely invested will not be happy when Smith throws one of his classic fits.  People seem to have a short memory of the things he did at Valley View that led to his departure.   I, too, believe they have lost a driving force behind their program.  Smith expects to step right in and reap the benefits of all of Hoffman's hard work.  But, somebody else will be glad to give Hoffman an opportunity to run their program.   What must the Brookland administration have been thinking.  All Jason Smith ever won was a few NEA tournament titles because he always had the largest classification school in the tournament.  Not an accomplishment!  He is just running from a conference he knows he can't win.
pretty harsh review of a sucessful coach, who truly cares about his players? I would have loved for my daughter to have played for a coach with the passion & character of Coach Smith.

Coaching jobs are not all about the classification.  A lot of factors determine how good a job is!

Brookland may be a good job, but its kind of scary for interested coaches when somebody backs out after being offered the job and accepting!

The decision to go to Bruno-Pyatt must be a get back home decision....Cause even if it's not about classes you can bet it was a pay cut...
Coaching all four teams might get him close to what he was making.

I doubt that.  The B-P principal probably doesn't make what he made at Wynne.

I do not know this to be true...just speculation on my part.  It has been hard to keep a team (especially girls) fielded for the three Ozark Mountain Schools (Western Grove, B-P, & St. Joe), so I'm thinking maybe one year coaching all four then they will combine basketball as Ozark Mountain like they have all other sports.  Again, this is just my thoughts and nothing anyone has told me.

Western Grove Boys have been respectable the past couple seasons...But the rest not so much.

Hector has "hired" Superintendant Walt Davis to be the new girls coach.
