Who is WE? Iíve talked to several people at Manila and nobody is really pleased with it. Didnít she cuss out a coach at mountain home and pull her girls off the floor without shaking the other teams hand? Why would she want to leave a 6A school for a 3A school? Doesnít make much sense to me unless she has some baggage.
Well the girls and parents met Coach Hart today and everyone but one family fell in love. One family of racists is the only opposition. One school board member is listening to this very small vocal minority.

I think Chris Meseke has the Cabot job.

Russellville sealed their hiring on Wed.  Info will come out on Thursday as they have a school board meeting that will signoff on the hiring.  It's a NWA guy whose name has not been leaked out yet

Sorry that should say senior and junior high girls plus softball. And their football staff consists of the head coach, one paid assistant, usually the boys'  basketball coach and an unpaid volunteer assistant

You will never get an established successful coach to agree to do football unless you pay them an insane amount of money.  You can get fresh out of college coaches to do it until they get their next job.

How can a school be competitive in any sport with the head coach pulling multiple assignments? I'm aware that smaller schools may have coaches doing basketball and baseball or something similar.  But for a head coach to do Football, Basketball and softball is very hard on them.  Probably a reason we haven't heard of some schools being successful at any sport.  You'll never get an established, good coach to pull 3 duties.

You said assistant.  Do the majority of his basketball players play football? Is he a coordinator or just out there for stipend?  What is his spring sport?  How long has he been at Drew Central?

Sorry for all the questions but you are trying to discredit what we said by a generalized statement about 1 school.

Besides, Great coaches have great players.

He has been at dc for 6 or 7 years.
Every good coach has good players. From his jr high teams that were so good one went to Conway who just committed to Oral Roberts, one went to Monticello and one went to Warren. He also helped with softball this year. Most of his players play football as they do at most small schools.

Again, we are talking about 1 school. Also, players that left are irrelevant. 

"Helped with softball" is not what we are talking about.  How good were they? Most likely there for a stipend, too.

What is his postion on the football staff?  Is it of importance?  Or Assistant Safetys coach?

I'm not discrediting whomever this coach is.  Simply saying this is a rare occurance and even so, he isn't the HC of anything other than Basketball.  No matter what, the assistants of any sport will not carry the stress or pressure a HC does.

I don't think highly overrated is fair.  I've seen several undermanned teams win against athletes because of X's and O's.  Athleticism will prevail more times than not, but to say they are "highly overrated" is naÔve.  They are important, very important in some cases, to high school basketball.  But in the end, Plays dont work, Players work.

X's and O's are very important in some cases... I agree with you on that. And in high school basketball athletiscm will not always prevail.. if you can get kids to be disciplined while running an offense and know where they are supposed to be on defense at all times, and they're lesser athletes.. you can win more games than a team that's just athletic!
