Just to let everyone know the Booster club that was in the paper supporting the ex football coach was not the HOBBC.This was a club started by someone else.The HOBBC did not support keeping the head football coach.Now that is clear i can tell everyone what i know so far which is not a whole lot.None of the HOBBC MEMBERS have been asked to be involved in the search for a new coach and probably will not be since we wanted the head coach replaced.The only good news i have is that i did get to talk to one asst. coach who has put his paper work in for the job.I want to thank Lilly Baker who got me in touch with him.Credic Dickerson who played at Liberty and played college at Valdosta State on national champ.team.Played three years pro ball in Canada.He has been at Lassiter H.S. for five years.When he was hired there the whole staff had just been fired.The asst. coach from Hoover H.S. IN Alabama was named the head coach.Long story short they have been in the playoffs every year since.They run a spread offense and Credic wants to bring that to Bradwell and work to rebuild the Tiger program.He is also the strengh coach and talked about how important that is in his rebuilding the program.If he was to get the job he said the off.cornd. wants to come with him.There is also a coach there that played at Bradwell that would to come home and work to get the program turned around.We talked for about a hour and i thought he had alot of good things to get everyone involved and excited again about Bradwell football.I think to get someone who has left and done good and wants to come back and work to rebuild the program might show our kids that hard work will take you as far as you want.Now the bad news is if they hire in house nothing will change.I just hope the powers that be know that the program needs a clean start.Maybe there has been more coaches that have applied that want to make a differance like the talk i had with Credic.

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.

Pardon the typos

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.

Ditto on everyone's comments.

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.

I agree, the new coach should come from the outside.
