No way do we want any coach who was om under Coach Walsh staff to have ANY involvement with this Fiotball Program. To have any of these staff members back associated with anything in the football program will be futile. I hope that the powers that be do not deceive us and considering anyone members of Coach Walsh Staff for any position of this coaching position. I'm sick and tired of this good ole boy network. We need a coach out of Loberty County with a proven track record who knows how to win and put a program together. The staff that worked under Walsh are not a choice to be considered at all. Now if the powers that want to continue deceiving us then next it will be time to have them removed along with all whom are involved. Lets not start deceiving the citizens of Hinesville fir any personal gains or favors. The BOE Members started off in the correct direction and nie that it is cleaned , lets not screw this up. No staff members ftom the Jim Walsh era.
As far as the notion of hiring from within, I couldn’t agree more that it would be a bad idea. There MAY be a coach or two that MIGHT be qualified. But unfortunately, the program has become so dysfunctional that any current member of the staff would, regardless of intention or skill, be hard pressed to change a culture that he was a part of. I just do not think he could sell something new to teenagers. I don’t think he could be convincing, considering the complete overhaul that is necessary.
It’s going to be a tough job for whoever takes it. But there is somebody somewhere that will want the challenge…let’s go find him.
Great info Darby. I am all for a 'fresh start' and NOT hiring from within the staff that is still at BI.
The stakes are very high right now and maybe be little room for error. We need positive change in this football program that we the citizens of this City and County can believe in, and be proud of. We NEED a new Head Football from the outside, That is the ONLY thing that is acceptable at this point. Bradwell Principal Scott Carrier is urged to do the right thing by hiring a head coach from the outside. The candidate HAS to be approved by the BOE Members anyway. I could only hope that we wont be decieved in this selection process.
