    I hope he doesn’t suffer the same fate as the previous two coaches?

    Congratulations and best of luck to Coach Belcher.

    Just from what I have seen in Ryle threads on here, this will be a very difficult challenge. Ryle supporters should be thankful they got an experienced varsity head coach to accept the position.

    Congrats to Coach Belcher. Now the "recruiting" begins. Getting athletes interested again should be priority #1!!!!

    Is this any more than a lateral move for Coach Belcher?

    This is why he was not the best hire! He has spent his entire career at PC. Never had to deal with football program. PC is a true basketball school. Ryle is in shambles. Administration has no clue how to support a program. Heck the AD wasn't even in any of the interviews. Now that is a joke. He will have his hands full not only trying to get the kids out, but dealing with the Triple Crown prince and princesses will be something he never experienced before. This is one of those programs where coaching careers die.

    Comparing the girls programs to the boys programs is a joke. I don't care how title 9 crazy you are. The girls program at Ryle has always been solid now they have talent. That's awesome. The boys program has never consistently won. Different beast. If you don't understand why then I cant explain it to you.
    I hope I m wrong and that he turns things around at Ryle. But there are no Mr. Basketballs in the hall ways in any of the schools that feed Ryle. There are no boys that dedicate themselves to the program at this point. We will see if he can turn things around! Ill sit back an watch. Hope they have good popcorn!

    Hey, All about the kids,

    You seem to post a lot on Ryle sports. First to criticize a coaching change, game decision by coaches etc. Ryle could use support from community members- people being part of the solution as opposed to the problem. Also, you have your facts wrong about the AD not being present at interviews. I think he may have missed one due to a family emergency involving his wife. I guess that was a joke.

    Congrats to Coach Belcher. Ryle had some good candidates to choose from and decided to go with Belcher. Time will tell if it was a good decision. I wish him well. Hopefully, the Raider Community/School will get behind him and give him a chance to get the program back on track.

    Good in theory but I don't think you have followed Ryle sports long if you think the community just jumps in and supports basketball. Good luck to coach Belcher...I think he's going to need it. This isn't PC where he could have gone years without a winning season and they would've still backed him.
