Be careful on the next hire because it can set you back many years.  My gators had lots  of chances thru out my time in foreman but blew most of them. We finally got a ball coach from yesteryear and see what happened. Yes talent dictates a lot in football but systems that coaches run with discipline and accountability work more than any xís and oís ever will. Administration can damper lots of dreams that make men out of a lot of young people.

Foreman would be a great school to follow. Eslim, you are 110% correct about discipline and accountability. It has lacked for a while.  I think the SB and Sup know what has been missing and want to fix it.

The Bears are gonna have to recruit,buy,beg, or borrow some speed to compete in this conference. When they have had speed they have been competitive. When they have not they have struggled. True, Ida isnít known for their blazing speed, but I donít think Spinghill does not have the physicality of the Lions. Good luck to you guys in your search. I hope you can find the guy that is the right fit.

From my sources- they want a coach with some experience, philosophy wise I'm not exactly sure.  A few on the SB know what they want and what will work down there. Like you said, speed as always been a issue at Spring Hill. And it will continue to be just based of the demographics of the school. Physicality  and high football IQ should never be a problem in Spring Hill. I watched 3 of their games in the '17 season and and the physicality wasn't there. If you leaned on them long enough, they'd tuck tails and run back home.  There's no reason they shouldn't be one of the more physical teams year in and year out. They have good enough student athletes down there to be in the  3-5 team range in the conference each year. But they're  not really looking at X's and O's but more of what a coach can bring and help students with dicapline wise and accountablilty wise. If those aren't fixed, nothing else matters. A  coach like coach white from mt Ida would be a good fit. Maybe someone from his coaching tree imo.

They have a talented group of seniors coming back this season. I think the next couple of classes will be pretty rough tho. Low in numbers. It always comes in cycles,  especially in 2A.

You are out of your mind if you think SpringHill will get a coach like White from Ida. Their best chance is hiring a young up and comer.

The two guys they have running their youth football program run a tighter ship compared to high school program. They needed a change. Watched them vs. mountain pine and it was the saddest thing I've seen in a while. No  discipline, no heart. Whoever the coach is will have his work cut out for him.

A young coach could work out. I think they made a good hire with the basketball coach for boys, tyler. He His investing his time with them when they are young and trying to build something. My son absolutely enjoys him as a coach and the pee wee guys he had in football this year.Both the Askew brothers, Hill, Kidd have helped out our younger players. I'd say there's some solid talent in elementary. If the coach sticks around to reap those players who knows. That may be why they are wanting to give out a shorter contract because they are scared no one will stick around.

A young coach is not a bad idea. One that has been around a discipline program and knows what it takes.

They posted a job for a head Jr High coach this morning.  Does that mean they promoted from within or have 2 spots open?

The head football coach for Sr high should be the head coach for Jr high. Head should have control of both teams. Consistency, between the two team will be key. The reason Ida has had a great program is Coach White even does pee wee work. He teaches youth coaches his offense so they learn it early. SH could do the same.

They have 2 spots open. Both coaches are leaving. The jr high coach is the baseball coach I believe.

I believe the Head Sr. High and Head Jr. High should be one position. Whoever they hire for the Head Sr. High position should at least be in charge of Jr. High until he gets his system installed. Then, the Jr. High Head Coaching Position should be turned into Head Baseball, Assistant Sr. High/Jr. High Football. I mean Baseball won a state championship last year and has the potential to win another this year and it seems as if Baseball is being put on the back burner.

I think Clark would be great! I've heard he is interested. Has a lot of experience and already knows the athletes/students and can get right to work since it would be an in-house hire. Give him Sr. High and Jr. High and then hire a Baseball/Assist. Football position.

Clark is a great guy, great coach, and a very smart man. I would be pulling for him to get the job. Only thing that scares me is that program needs some life and energy breathed into it. No doubt he can discipline and correct some of the problems.
