    Head Coaching Stability

    Franklin-Simpson has had 4 head coaches since 1975:

    James Mathews 1975-1993
    Jean Rollins 1994-1997
    Tim Schlosser 1998-2011
    Doug Preston 2012-present

    This time of year we see a lot of turnover as far as head coaches are concerned. I would imagine the most successful programs in the state have had very few changes in the head coach position over the years. I'm curious as to what kind of coaching stability other programs have had.

    Even if you tack on Vince Hancock's two season to get to Wilson Sears' nine seasons, Bowling Green has still just had four since 1973. It's all been pretty impressive for the Purples.

    Count them up between 1956 and Wilson Sears.

    The BG School Board insisted on hiring coaches. They found one good one. Jim Pickens. And a bunch of not so good. It was a carousel.
