    Lucas did a great job @ Station in regards to wins/losses compared to what had occurred @ that school since John Nochta stepped down as head coach to become Principal at Henry Clay. That being said, he left the program in financial turmoil & a lot of brand new uniforms & equipment went unaccounted for after he stepped down causing the school to have to replace a lot before the next season.(not saying he took them, they were basically given away) I've also heard that Manual received a large shipment of cleats that were an unapproved order from him as well & the AD is trying to unload them. (heard this from an AD I spoke to, can anyone from Manual can chime in on this to verify)

    Dunbar collects football coaches over there; Hensley retired from there after last school year after stepping down after 2008, Howell, Thomas & Rains are all still there currently.

    Lucas has some family ties to Central Kentucky if I remember correctly.
    I'm pretty sure the shoes were donated from the Big University next door. They are red/black adidas cleats. I know UL donates a lot of their stuff to them.

    I heard some things about this type of thing when he was at station as well, like I said you never know the full truth, but there was some equipment and financial disagreements.

    Okay, I am confused now... Is Coach Lucas interviewing with Montgomery County or is Dunbar interviewing a Coach named Montgomery?

    I think Lucas interviewed at both Montgomery and Dunbar. I heard Dunbar has offered the job to someone, but not sure who. If they offered Lucas, he probably won't interview at Montgomery. Anyone know?

    I feel that it wouldnt matter if he has interviewed for a 2nd time @ one of the schools, he will interview @ the other just to feel them out to see where he stands.
