    Lots of speculation of who would take the helm but from day 1 most folks knew this was a no-brainer. Some may disagree (you have that right) but to have a guy that was the right hand man of Coach Wallace, already in the building (knows all the kids), as well as an established scheme on both sides of the ball and maybe most notably a real stand-up guy it was fairly obvious.

    Purples did their due diligence and had great candidates but Spader was just too hard to resist. He will put his fingerprints on offense but will get another coach or two in (more familiar Purple faces). Some may not agree with this but it is what it is. He will put a dream team of a staff together.

    More to come...

    I gotta ask, was this ever really a national search? It seems that the Purples had their guy from the very beginning of said national search.

    I guess people don’t know how this works. There is no such thing as a national search. It’s made public and you either apply or you don’t. At BG you are expected to teach so that eliminates a lot of “big time coaches” but make no mistake BG got a big time coach

    BGHS did have a national search. Max preps, 247, Hudl all has avenues for schools to list such positions.

    Most logical pick. Will be interesting to see the additions to the staff that will need to be made.

    I’m sorry. They did advertise nationally but some seem to think that BG was going to call coaches and gauge their interest and that doesn’t happen. A lot of people don’t know how good the big time coaches have it at their high schools. You will never attract a private school coach because of money and most public school coaches that are really good are happy where they are but with all that being said BG picked the right guy no matter who applied
