    Do you have proof, "in it for the wrong reason. With them it's not about the kids, it's about their own kids."?
    I would encourage you to ask his other players what they thought of their experience playing for him, do they share your "its not about the kids (them)" comment?
    And who's to know he took the HC job and HC hired him knowing when his second son graduated he would step down. I don't know if this was discussed but could see this conversation having gone down during the interview process.

    My understanding was that HC didn't have a freshman coach at the start of the school year or even at the first of Sept that year. They needed a coach and she stepped up. And did a damn fine job too.

    I can garuntee you that the question was asked and answered by no less than 6 of his previous players, and they agreed with what camelman stated. Not all the players were asked but enough to see what the general consensus was.

    What are the chances that his son gets playing time at CovCath over the next couple of years?

    Ben Franzen would be a great choice for this opening IMO. How about Kevin Bundy? Andre McClendon may also be a good choice, but could he perhaps be interested in that Covington Holmes job?
    The fascination is ask anyone at Covington Catholic if he is a good coach!!!

    1) There is a point in time that a assistant coach wants to build his own program. So maybe he is ready to be a head coach and build his own program
    2) I can only image that a head coach doesn't want this job because of the pay( Maybe the All A Schools maybe). So might as well go outside the program and hire assistant coach that has some success.
    3) Record as a assistant coach at Cov. Cath. 152-25. 3 Regional Championship, 1 State Title and 1 Final Four
    4) He is connected to AAU programs and College Basketball.

    No brainer for me

    Record as assistant? So when/if he becomes a head coach he starts with 152 wins!?

    I was not and am not calling into question his abilities as a coach or his connections. My question, which has been answered privately, was whether he had a desire to coach a team of his own.

    I wish we all should be so lucky as to meet Coach Fredrick someday. From the way he comes billed by you, it must be quite the life-altering experience to get to be introduced to the man.

    Holy Cross needs a coach who knows the school and its place within the community.
    Fredrick's name has been mentioned and I think it popped up the last time it was open. From what I hear is that I don't think it is a match.
    Jeff Trame is a name that has been mentioned.
    Andre McClendon is a real possibility.
    Kes Murphy is another name that has been bantered about.
    Dave Bezold would be a excellent hire, but not sure if he leaves his role at Xavier. If Neal gets another year, I don't see him leaving Victory Parkway.

    Agreed... if the concern here is to not get anyone who is merely serving their own interests then not a good fit for sure. Some of the others you mentioned, to different degrees, IMO would make way more sense, and would better serve the Holy Cross community.

    I don’t think Jeff or Dave are interested. I think Andre would do really well and keep Muck which would be helpful as well.
