Head Coaching Jobs in Arkansas
« on: December 16, 2018, 06:47:52 pm »
First post and I figured I give a little background about myself. I am looking to make the move to Arkansas to continue my coaching career. I have been fortunate in my career to this point and have been able to learn under some very talented coaches at the college and high school levels through Texas and I am currently a college women's assistant in Kansas. I grew up in the East Texas area and have always been impressed with the state of Arkansas high school basketball. I did want to hear from a few locals on your thoughts and if you knew of anyone else who made a similar change?

Leadhill girls basketball coach was a asst boys coach in the kjccc for about a decade i think and made the move to leadhill about 3 years ago. Seems to be making the transition good.

Literally in the same boat. Currently coaching in the Dallas metroplex, but looking to make the move this summer after the school year ends. Glad to find this page as an extra resource of potential job openings.

This will be a great job for someone looking to take a team and establish themselves. I'm hearing all sorts of possibilities. Old, new, familiar. Look for them to take their time and get this right

With all the changes in the last few years, what would you suggest they do MUSTANG? Any names that you think can right the ship and stay clear of craziness?

I could think of a couple but I'm not going to put in on here.  I have notified them of the opening.
I think we need an established Coach at this time. Someone that has a few years under their belt.

I think this could be a great job to have after the initial year in the program. Being a basketball school, it would allow a coach time to get their system in and make some noise after awhile if the players are there. Would love to see the list of who gets an interview when it is all said and done. This could be a job that leads to many openings.

I'm hearing a former player is in the mix. He's a well known former player in the Monette/Manila area. I think a lot of people will apply for this one.

Well at the Russellville tournament I heard him tell his team not to dribble so I'm thinking pretty bad....

Max Preps shows Two Rivers went 5-20 before last year. If he was there two years, he won 17 in year one. If you go from 17 to 4 there is clearly a talent issue. He must not be that bad if he took a 5 win team to 17 in one year..

In 15-16 the team went 18-10, then had the 5 win season the following year.

In 17-18 the team won the 17 games, then this year had a 4 win season.

The last box score of that 17 win season in 17-18, shows only two seniors playing. Both were the bulk of that team's scoring. Also had a freshman contribute, who would have been a sophomore this year.

All of this according to Maxpreps.

It's also worth noting the football team went 0-10 this past season. It could very well be just a down cycle of talent throughout the whole high school on the boys side.

The down cycle of talent is probably true.....I also hear that there is still a lot of hard feelings amongst the citizens of that school district coming from the 4 schools that were closed to form two Rivers...

Did they dribble into 5 consecutive live-ball turnovers before he said that? You may have seen them play once, but Iíve seen them play 20 times. They just werenít good at dribbling. Dribbling into two or three defenders with your head down and turning the ball over isnít helping your team ever

Um no they didn't they were up pretty big.  How can you play basketball without dribbling?  What coach would tell their team not to dribble?

If they were winning, what does it matter? And if your team is not proficient in dribbling and turns the ball over an exorbitant amount when dribbling, why not try moving the ball without dribbling?
