Just because you are an assistant coach on a state championship team it doesn't necessarily mean you will be a great head coach. Just like being an assistant coach on a bad team doesn't mean you will be a bad head coach.

Funny!  Some truth in it.  Guys that did really well at one place have at times not been able to repeat that success at a different school, sometimes at the same school!  Talent is what makes a good coach really good.

Houston is the HC, he played at OLE MISS.  Does he have any head coach experience?

ANOTHER  out-of-state hire.  Coaches who choose to stay in Arkansas and work their way into a Head Coach position are not given the real opportunity.  First, in the late 1990's through 2004, old coaches would retire and then get rehired, allowing them to draw 2 checks.  Now, Texans and Okies are flooding in.  When an in-state coach is hired, the jobs for upward mobility open, like falling dominoes.  School boards and key administrators are making shortsighted decisions.  Most of these will bail out and return to the state from which they came at 1st chance.

Those that are doing the hiring are making a statement about the quality of Arkansas applicants.  There have been a number of out of staters hired in the border towns it seems.

Curious question.  Are we seeing more administrative positions going to out of state applicants as well?

I think you can get on the Marion School District facebook page and see the introduction and Q and A of the new staff. I understand they answered questions about what O/D they will be running.

Watched the introduction of new staff, seem like a decent set of guys.  Talked about role models and high character.  Coaching wise seems as many unanswered questions as answered.  It depends on what the talent pool provides.

The new hc, who was the dc at the school in Texas, is coming from a program that has gone 3-7 (gave up an ave of 36 ppg), 4-6, and 3-7 the last three years. The guy going to be dc is coming from a school that went 0-10 last year and 1-9 the year before. I would think there were candidates from Arkansas that had better resumes than that.

Whoa!!   If that is indeed true it seems very odd.  I'd have to see that confirmed to believe it.  Of course schools have this thing about hiring Texas coaches.

1 problem with not hiring Arkansas Football Coaches is the out-of-state hires prevent the "dominoes from falling" in relation to coaching jobs/opportunities for the loyal Assistant Coaches who teach 3 to 6 classes a day These coaches who have prepared themselves to move up are not getting the chance.  This is shortsighted on the part of the school administrators and school boards.

My question is why this guy or guys over Arkansas applicants.  There was an early post of 3 highly touted south Arkansas apps.

Even stranger considering how this coaching staff keeps getting poached, the latest courtesy of Paris.

If you're in the market for delta property...

Strange that so many have left and as strange that many have landed HC jobs with limited success.  I reckon Marion will be hiring another coach to replace the one that went to Paris? Hows the new staff working with the kids. Any camp or 7 on 7 results yet?

Their OC from last year just left as well and became the head baseball coach and assistant for the high school football staff at Riverview...interesting. Seems like they had some good coaches on the previous staff.

So are any of the old staff left?  I don't know how good the old coaches were or are, they didn't do anything really impressive at Marion but they had been around for a while at some other places.  But then, I'm not sure how impressive the records of the new guys are. How are workouts going for Marion?

How is the summer going for the Pats?  Haven't seen much about the team development since the new hires.

I know they didnt lose much from last year and Ive seen where two of their defensive players have D-1 offers. That Switzer kid was offered by A-State not too long ago. They probably will be better regardless of who is coaching them. They also looked a lot bigger/better up front in the spring game than from years past.

Marion is going to be better, they return almost all starters off of last years team. So the new coaches will look great regardless. Marion had some excellent coaches leave.

Wynne, West Memphis, Pine Bluff and Jonesboro are the tougher games on the schedule.  They should be able to go 6-4 in the regular season and 4-3 in conference play, then have a tough playoff game if they finish 4th.  With all the hype over the new coaches I think fans are going to expect at least a 6-4 season.  I didn't see a tune up game for the preseason so they may not get a chance to gauge their chances until Wynne.

Gotta give Marion a little credit it's always good to go unbeaten in non conference. Curious if they're still in the same system or not? Last year their quarterback proved to be a stud... not sure if he was a senior or not but it'd be fine with me if he was lol

Two 3-0 teams five miles apart you can't beat it... game should be packed as usual  :)

How they do against WM will tell where they are for sure.
I'd say BlueDevils, by  3 scores.
