Wow.  That's an unfortunate loss obviously.  Thank you to Coach Kendrick for being a big part of 4 State Championship teams at Charleston.

Their DC should get a look. No one is more of a Tiger than him. IMO he would keep the Charleston Tradition going.

They will get the correct man to bring tradition back and will be back in the hunt for a title soon .

I hope you are right.  I think we have been very fortunate to have had Wood, Loughridge, and Kendrick guide this program the last decade plus,  I don't know what tradition you mean bringing back, but I'd rather keep the state championship tradition kind.

Its not like Loughridge is lighting it up at Alma right now. Hes 43-29 in 6 seasons. I think Delbick(sp?) only went 35-32 games in 6 seasons. Just seems weird to go from HC back to be a coordinator at the same level. Yeah pay may be a little better but still. Most HCs unless asked to resign or leave get other HC jobs.

Loughridge and Kendrick started their stints together at Charleston in 07. Both great people with an undeniable passion for the game. Kendrick made a great choice to join Loughridge. These two together again could jump start Alma and put them over the this hump they haven't seemed to get over. Loughridge has done a great job at Alma if you compare those that were there before him, besides Vines of course. I think, in my opinion, its a better environment for Kendrick. Yes, Charleston has a storied history with multiple titles in the last 15 years, but as we all know, these small town football programs have expectations. Everywhere you go, someone is asking you about what's next. Maybe he was ready to get out and do something bigger. This sets him up to take another leap in the years to come.  Now, he can focus on one thing, offense. I wish these guys the best of luck. Knowing the town of Charleston, Stewart lands this job, or perhaps maybe Doc Crowley throws his name in the hat?? As we know, he and his brother were graduates of Charleston and his entire family lives there as well. Not to mention he is an OC right down the road in Booneville. This will be an interesting job, especially if someone changes the offensive philosophy.

Let's be honest, if we are talking politics, Stewart has just as much clout as others in that town. He just is not one to be as vocal. If Smitty knows what's good for him, he is in a great spot right now with a great staff around him in Alma. Crowley has made a name for himself, I would not consider him a hire due to politics. Ross, shoot, he's got it made in Conway.

Happy for Kendrick. He will do well and could easily be a good OC at the 7A level. Gets along with his coaches and players as well as any successful HC out there. And times change every year in the coaching circles, and dominoes fall this time of year before April or so. Good luck Coach Kendrick.  :-*

I consider that a good thing.... Let's his work do the talking. I hope he is the one that lands the job. Good luck to him if he does go for this job.

Lots to be excited about for the future of the Charleston football program.  The 7th and 8th grade classes are full of size and talent that any prospective coach would be excited about for the future.  And the returning players from this years team should do well under a more balanced offense.  Chris Smith, Matt Stewart, Doc Crowley are all names I would love to see as the Tigers HC.  Great football minds but most importantly, great leaders of men! Looking forward to see who the next HC will be.  Go Tigers!

Last I heard about him, he did graduate, entered his name into the new transfer portal, apparently no takers as of yet, is no longer with the team (Razorbacks)

 I've been kind of expecting him resurface and announce something official pertaining to his current plans. He has a lot of fans (I'm one of them) that wish him nothing but the best and hoping to here some good news soon. He was a die-hard Razorback that gave gave all he had every time he stepped on the field.

Apparently Coach Morris didn't think he could run his offense, not being privy to any inside info, I don't really think he ever got a fair shot at it.

The day has come!!!

The top deciding factor should be that Hes a Charleston Alum, whoever they decide to hire! You got a chance to get a guy like Chris Smith back home and leading the program, you gotta be pretty fired up for that. A resume like that, great coach and a Charleston boy. Well be getting back to Charleston Football. Cant wait!!!! Hope they get it right and get back to Chucktown Tradition.

Ive heard May from Waldron/Booneville being rumored if that is the person down the road you were referring too.  Im sure hes a good coach, dont know how well hed fit in Charleston going from a spread to a veer offense and trying to out Booneville, Booneville with fewer players.  Id imagine hed have to take a pay cut too, so dont think hed be an actual option.
