    Fayette County jobs are usually very political. So getting the right person for this position is critical. With the success Coach Johnson experienced I think it will be difficult for the next coach unless Coach Johnson is on board. With Coach Johnson still teaching in the school and having contact with the kids, I believe the hire will need to be somebody he thinks highly of. Station is a great job but it will take the right person.

    I would think this coming week we will hear something about potential candidates. I’m sure there are many outstanding coaches interested in this position but I believe Ashland will go with a veteran coach. I just think they will want to know what they are getting before they get it.

    I know there are close ties between Station and Frederick Douglas but I believe if they hire an assistant they will stay within their staff to hire.

    There is a lot of ties between Station and Frederick Douglas but I would be surprised if that happens. I believe if they hire an assistant then they will hire within.

    On paper it sounds like a very good hire but I’m not sold on college coaches coming back to the high school level. I have seen to many times where it has not worked out. Not because of their basketball knowledge or their ability to teach the game but because they don’t understand the dynamics of high school athletics. College coaches are use to recruiting talented kids that are super motivated on being great basketball players. At the high...

    I have been wondering about candidates myself. I have heard absolutely nothing about this job. It is hard to believe the Ashland Basketball job doesn't draw more attention than what it is.

    On paper Coach Amis seems to be a good fit for Greenup Co. Now you hope the natives will give him a chance to implement his program. His 15-15 record this year at Eminence is the 2nd highest win total at Eminence in the past 10 years. With 4 of the top 5 scorers for Eminence returning next year, you would think next year would have been even better. He obviously had things headed in the right direction. I'm hoping the best for Coach Amis...

    Any word on the candidates for this position? I’m not sure there is a quick fix for GC. There is a lot of work to be done if they are going to get back to a player in the 16th Region. Over the past 4 or 5 years there hasn’t been a lot of attention given to the feeder programs. Is Coach Kidwell interested in the job?

    I canít argue that there seems to be a lot of craziness around the program right now. Or should I say Craziness for the past 4 years. But I still think there will be good coaches going after this job. Iím just curious to see what direction they go from here. Personally I have not heard any names so that is why I was asking.

    It has been close to two weeks since Coach Howell was let go as coach at Ashland. Any word on leading candidates for this job?

    Is Coach Buttry getting out of teaching or is he taking another teaching job in western Kentucky? The 11th Region is just too good for Madison Southern to be a significant player most years. Even in their best years they were not good enough to compete with the others. Will they hire within to fill this position?

    Any assistant coach that doesn’t back the head coach should get fired too. No way you promote an assistant if he under cuts a head coach.

    I understand it was just 1 year at Russell in a rebuilding year but I just can’t see the Strader move to head coach. That move by administration would cause some major red flags associated with it and honestly give Ashland an even bigger black-eye than it already has. Fire a successful coach (alumni) that was one game from the “Sweet Sixteen” then hire an assistant with a career record of 6-25. That move makes things look like there was...

    If this job is opened up to outside candidates, I think we will see some outstanding express interest in this job. Ashland is still Ashland and even thou there is a lot of craziness surrounding the job, I still think good coaches will be interested in it. I think Howell did enough to make it an attractive job again. It will be interesting to see what kind of timetable they will establish to fill this position.

    Howell did a great job restoring the pride to Ashland Basketball. They struggled down the stretch this year going 4-4 in their last 8 games but they have good kids returning. You have to believe something is in the works if a coach is not renewed after a very solid season. Having watched Straderís year at Russell, Iím not convinced that is the direction they are headed but I have been wrong before. Ashland is still Ashland and they should...
