West Fork can be a good job but I am not sure how easy it would be to get the program back on track. These last 2 seasons have been their worst in around 20-30 years. In fact they're just coming off their most successful stretch of football from 2005-2015. In those 11 seasons the tigers compiled a 79-47-1 record, 62 win % average 7-4 record, winning 5 conference championships, playoff appearances in 10 of those 11 seasons, playoff record of 8-10. This is my alma mater so it pains me to see that the success in athletics have dropped off so much. I don't know if its talent or if there is just something cooler to do now.

What appears to be the problem?  Didn't they move up classifications a few years back?

I think they jumped up a couple of years back and the move just make a bad situation worse.  The talent fell off and the competition got better.  Seems WF has run a little bit in streaks,a few good or really good years and a couple of off years so I would expect it will go back up.  I also believe they are moving back down a class to where they were during that 11 year run the whippersnapper talked about. That may be just the thing to help get them going again if they can get a good tough coach to lead them.

They are moving to 3A-1.  Some very good teams in there, Booneville and Charleston for instance but also some teams they should be able to compete with next year.

The line of applicants just got a lot longer in that case.

This job was posted at a bad time. Most coaches looking to move up already decided to stay for next year and the players don't know whether to stay or go have to stay longer. Hopefully they get one by the next week or two.

Because on here every hire is a "great hire" or a "home run hire".

Best of luck to him and I don't know of him so if its his first HC job then congrats on getting the position especially if he is breaking into the HC ranks. West Fork will be a tough one to turn around and someone has to be willing to try.
