That job will be flooded with inquiries. I wouldn't be shocked if some of these names that have already taken jobs other places end up applying.

I know Weaver took a job at MacArthur so he's out.  Trumann could not match the money for Brad Brannen so that ship as sailed as well.  Heard rumors of Barbara Wilburn leaving Marked Tree.  He talent has dried up there.  Shes a great coach and would be an A+ hire.  Someone mentioned Steve Richey and Billy Phelan.  I hadn't heard those names prior to reading them here.  Billy Phelan is hit or miss I think. He had zero control over Cross County and spent the last 2 seasons under the most overrated coach in 5A.  I guess if they are desperate, which at this point the most likely are, then Phelan or Richey would be ok for a couple years.  I think Mikie Slater would have been a good fit but he's taken the Bay girls position.  Edgar is obviously looking but he isn't close to a good choice.  Trumann folks would eat him alive.  Seems like the black and gold brick road should lead to Wilburn.

Been quiet at Trumann on the coaching BB coaching job. Wilburn is not a candidate anymore she is staying at Marked Tree. Heard that Richey was not really wanting to drive so I guess if Billy Phelan is still interested he will be the man unless someone has popped up that we have not heard rumors about. Heard Waymire left the football program to take a job as AD @ Jacksonville HS. Every boy's sports HC is open in Trumann. That's not good.

Do we know if BigTiger was hired Brookland Jr. Boys coach?

Heard Bill Taylor was still at Brookland and Isaac Middlebrooks had interest in the job. I'm very confused by the Brookland folks on this one.  Gross thankfully should only have 1 or 2 more years.  Hiring Middlebrooks for this would be a slam dunk home run case closed A+ hire.  Especially with all the talent they have coming up.
