I also figure Gosnell could be open. Several jobs right across the state line are also open Senath, Kennett, Hayti, South Pem, etc. Both Nutt boys have resigned their coaching jobs. Logan Nutt did one heck of a job at Woodland.

Was told Nemo Vista was giving their job to the Jr high coach. This was several weeks ago though so things may have changed

Yes. Four seasons of player development and leadership.  I was always impressed with how he motivated his role players to execute their assigned offensive and defensive responsibilities. He also designed brilliant offensive sets  and defensive schemes  that maximized the talents of his skilled players. Those 3 rings were not won by talent alone.

I agree, Coach Middlebrooks is a good coach & his kids play the right way. Anyone who doesn't think he can coach has a very limited knowledge of the game.

Doubt either leaves their hometown, they are just hometown guys, who both are great assets to those towns, far beyond coaching basketball.

I don't think that's very accurate. I have plenty of knowledge of the game and I completely disagree with you. Maybe people have different opinions of what a coach should be.

Just curious, do you have a problem with him personally or do you just think he's been blessed with that much talent?  Give us some examples of him being a poor coach.

Coaches and refs have this in common.  Noone is ever going to agree with them 100 percent.  Middlebrook has had a lot of talent at cedar but so has bays coach Earles coach epc etc...  This topic is not about whether you like a coach or not it's about rumors as to where jobs are open and who is going there.  Let's get back k on topic. 
Who us going to cave city ?

Both, actually. I won't give any specific personal examples, because this isn't the place. It's extremely obvious that he has been blessed with that much talent though. Coaching is more than just x's and o's, and I will leave it at that. Although I also question his x's and o's, because he has yet to prove what he can do without a couple of d-1 and a couple of naia players on the team. It will be interesting to see if he jumps ship, or if he sticks around for this program he is credited with building.

 I won't comment about it anymore though, everyone can keep praising the guy. I wish him good luck wherever he goes.

I would second that opinion.  Coach Middlebrooks has done a heckuva job.  To win 3 titles in 4 years is so hard to do no matter what talent you have.  Sometimes the hardest part of coaching is getting good, great, and average players to buy into a system and their individual roles.  He has done that! Do you think CR would have won it if you were coaching them?   You need to be thankful for what you have in Cedar Ridge.

I heard BIC has some strong applicants interviewed last week for the boys job.  I also heard rumors of the girls Coach going elsewhere.   BIC may have a totally new staff for next season.

I was told yesterday that Bay has hired Andrea Gambil as girls assistant coach for the coming year. That is pending the outcome of the WNBA draft and if she elects to go to the WNBA if drafted. Was told she is excited to be coming to Bay and starting her coaching career. Should be a great addition to the Bay coaching staff.

Congrats to BIC and their new coach.  Will be interesting to see who gets the job at Cedar Ridge.  Not sure what's left down there talent wise. Considering the ride they've enjoyed that the Reeves/Crabtree families provided I would assume the expectation level is pretty high.

Pretty sure he will be coaching boys at viola. Don't think he ever really wanted BIC job. Just verbally accepted it while still looking for other positions. He never signed a contract so he was free to still look around. He came back to his home town.

Not a BIC fan in the least, but not very professional. JMO, you ask kids to be committed & then show exact opposite. It is his life & choice though, wish him the best. Just an unbiased opinion.

Well, you have to go to a place that's low key after you leave CR with all that talent. Nobody will pay attention to his lack of success at Viola. It's a smart move.

I'm pretty sure he is going back to his hometown. So the move makes all the sense in the world to me if he wants to be closer to his hometown and relatives. I think people are reading too much into it and have some hard feelings.. JMO though
