    I understand that the Breds like to "take care of their own"

    So who was on staff last year that might have interest in this job

    Talking with a few alumni tonight, a few things were mentioned but one constant was lack of respect for the Head Coach. I know personal fouls were a big thorn in their side this year and not caring if your HC cared would create that issue. I don’t know any where near the ins and outs of this situation but looking hind sight I certainly see lack of discipline ie respect glaringly

    He must have gotten soft after his job as the Campbell County disciplinarian?

    I should say, I’m on the outside looking in, my point was “kids these days” don’t respect authority. Look how the NFL boys act towards Officials and their coaches and you have the trickle down effect. If you’re the HC and the kids do not care about what you’re trying to do then you’re hands are tied. I believe that was what my friends were saying. Short of benching or kicking guys off the team what else can you do? If your the HC you’d have to believe that at some point they’d listen to you.

    Numbers dwindling, pressure to win. An influx of inner city kids joining the school. Makes it a very hard job

    Some things I saw this year and things I heard disciplin was an issue. Lack of respect for coaching staff was shocking. They had issues in the discipline area for sure.

    I will also say there are way to many dad's uncle's cousins brothers and so on, of players on the team on the coaching staff at NewCath. That can be nothing but trouble.

    Interesting question. I grew up in Bellevue; is that considered "inner city?"

    I would not be, but went to grade school in Newport with kids that I guess fit the bill. That's not my point. My issue is that when discipline begins to wane, it doesn't matter where the kids are from. I've seen my friends from both sides of the track be extremely respectful b/c they were raised to be that way. I have seen friends from both sides of the track that were punks b/c they could be, or something else was causing them to act out. Socioeconomic groupings wasn't this team's or staff's problem.
