    I've heard there's more than 1 Head Coach in Kentucky that's applied for the job so far.

    Im sure that the job will get plenty of interest in the NEKY area but the job, in my opinion, is not the job it used to be. Most of the talent in SEOH is located west of Ironton in Wheelersburg. The only thing that Ironton has going for it is tradition and community support

    Irontons Junior class is one of the best in the last few years, the Coaching Staff in place isn't getting it done as far as teaching the fundamentals. One of the biggest problems is that most of the Assistants are related to the Lutz era Staff, and that doesn't make you a Coach. The Fighting Tigers need someone to come in, wipe the slate clean, bring in their own Assistant Coaches and get back to the fundamentals of football.

    I figured Sammons would be content at Midland. I understand the tradition at Ironton, but Midland is one of West Virginias 's largest schools and appears to have very nice facilities, etc. It surprises me somewhat.

    Teachers arent getting paid in WV at current so I would leave too.

    Grizzle has a lot of momentum at Greenup, good classes coming up, a young staff, a stud QB and a favorable district in 2019-2020. I cant imagine the situation would be better at Ironton for him. He may have interviewed but I dont see him wearing any color but Green this year.

    Despite being the least experienced of the coaches listed, Grizzle would be my choice if I were Ironton. He's a young, energetic, enthusiastic coach who would absolutely change the culture over there. Things have become stale across the river over the past several years. Taking the Greenup job tells me that Grizzle doesn't mind a challenge. He might even relish it. And Ironton would certainly be an intriguing challenge right now, especially considering that Wheelersburg's program is currently at an all time high point.

    Word on the street is these are just token interviews & Vass will be rehired. He reapplied for his job and will interview as well.

    Also hearing that maybe a former retired coach from Wayne (WV) is in play. Wayne always has good teams year in & year out.

    So what exactly happened then? Did he resign and was asked to re-apply due to their lack of interest in those who have came after it thus far?

    Sounds like some strong candidates for this job.
