    What subjects does he teach? I understand that Bell is cutting teaching jobs.

    That may be good enough...

    They already have 2 AD's, so I kind of thought that he may have to be in the classroom.

    Seems like he has to be connected in some way. I saw Bell County play a few times last year and it doesn't look like their overly stacked with talent, at least not compared to Christian County. I would think this move almost has to be due to personal connections.

    I hear his wife is from the Bell County area and that they threw a lot of money at him.

    Christian County is a good job for next year but there will be a drop off after next year.

    Even with a dropoff, the future would seem to still be brighter at Christian than Bell. However, Bell is a program that is consistently solid and if he has family members in the area the move definitely makes sense.

    How much can they pay a basketball coach at Bell county? Going rate around the state is 5000 to 12000. Most schools pay the boys and girls the same salary along with the football coach. Do they have the money to pay a coach more than the going rate? Is this a big news hire for Bell county?
