Honestly I'm not sure. It was basically down to 3 candidates the whole time, Jordan Marcum (Madison Central), Austin Maples (Montgomery County) and Cade Berryman (In-House). It came down to Marcum and Maples with Marcum getting the nod. Madison Central had a fantastic season last year and I'm certain Estill is hoping coach Marcum can bring some of that with him to Irvine.
Maples was the OC at Montgomery even tho he didn't call the plays last season, he did however call them when Dan Gooch was coach.
Cade Berryman was Estill's middle school coach and the special teams coach at the high school. Played at Estill. Other than that he has no coaching experience.
Their was some on the staff that I feel should have gotten an interview. Austin Moore, Russ Swim (not exactly sure if he applied) and maybe one more.
I'm really excited to see how the spread offense/option whatever coach Marcum brings, works at Estill. He will inherit a Trevor Jones type QB in Ty Niece. Let him sling it over the field or keep it. The double wing was great when you had a line that could block and open up holes but if you don't then you aren't getting anywhere with it so it was time for the ole double wing to go hide for awhile.
I'm optimistic. I'm willing to give Coach Marcum time to see what he can do. I just hope he stays at Estill for awhile and not just a year or two.
