    Interesting. So, a guy who's under 6' has a chance to play baseball in college? I think that's outstanding.

    Why wouldn't it be? I`m all for any kid that can move on doing so. And yes a kid 6` or under has a much better chance in baseball. Not a hole lot of basketball players that size in college. There are many pro baseball players around 6`. Not but 1 or 2 in the NBA. Its not eazy to make it in any sport, my OP Basketball is the hardest.

    From what I herd today Coach Kidwell will be helping Tackett. Now hopefully Harold will take Coach Kidwell`s help and run with it. The 15-16 season is Harold`s last on contract. I would like to see Harold move on ,and Coach Kidwell take over. But really 1 more season, is 1 to many.

    Contract? Last year?
    There are no coaching contracts. All coaching positions are a year to year deal.

    I`m not 100% sure, but I`ve been told by many people that he got a 4 year deal. I will check on Monday , and post what I find.

    HS coaches don't get multi-year contracts. Basically every coach is year to year.

    I`m just saying , I have herd from more than 2 or 3 people he had a 4 year deal. If so , it might be because Greenup had 4 coaches in 4 years. But like I said , I will know 100% yes or no , on Monday. I think teachers are 1 year, so in most cases , year to year is right. Or it could be he was promised 4 years .

    That big of a difference in pay , from Russell to Greenup ? I know each school system pay`s different , but a Big cut. And Teachers are way underpaid any way.
