I have someone reliable who told me Morris is waiting on the opportunity to talk to his players about his retirement. Hasn't been able to get because of all the complications from the tornadoes.

The job was posted so the hire could be finalized asap.

I'm hearing he's retiring from the school system and applying for the job. Think he'll get it?  

I understand the sentiment with this post, however if Coach Morris does indeed leave, I would say this is a decision that was made well before the tornados hit. 

Was sent this today?

Talk about his retirement, or his "retirement"?

This is who I will listen to and believe on Coach Morris and the Mayfield job.

I just go with a source but they could be wrong. If it's not Coach Morris , I think it's going to be Coach Dew, I would be shocked if anyone else gets the job.

South Gibson High School is looking for a head football coach as of December 15th...that's about 90 minutes south of Mayfield. They've made it to the 4A quarterfinals the last two years in a row.

Also head coaching jobs out there at Milan HS in Gibson County, and at both Montgomery Central HS & Northeast HS in the Clarksville area.

Just thinking out loud, but that opportunity would allow for Coach Morris to collect his Kentucky retirement and still get full salaries for teaching and coaching both in Tennessee.

That would be hard to turn down. Essentially making 6 figures (retirement plus new salary) to coach football at a powerhouse in TN. I’m sure with his resume many schools would set him up with a pretty good gig between 8-3.

I understand the retirement part here, but I have a hard time believing Coach Morris would leave the team and community after the disaster that just hit Mayfield. If so, its a pretty tough thing for those kids and community to be hit with right now. Just a tough blow all around if he leaves.

I 100 percent believe this decision would have been made well in advance of the tornados that hit the area, but can't see him leaving the kids and the community now with all that has happened. Either way, he is one of the best coaches in the state of Kentucky, and has earned the right to leave when he believes its the right time for him.

On December 9th, the day before the tornado and our only home basketball game so far, I was sitting next to Coach Morris.  After we had discussed and solved most of the worlds' problems, I asked him if he was going to be back next year.  He paused for a good while and then successfully deflected by asking me what I thought about the job Sam Pittman was doing for the Razorbacks. That was a tangent I could get into and off we went into Arkansas football.  

Interpreting silence is pretty tricky, but at the time I felt like there was going to be change.  Not sure what it was going to be, but with the posting of the job it's now a certainty that something is going to be different.  Until he says different it is my hope that he'll be coach of the Cardinals next year.  If he is the coach next year, I'll be ecstatic, but surprisingly-even to myself, it's not all about football.  He means a lot to this community. It's in the countless hours spent at the gym (shelter) after the tornado and it's in the way that teenage boys stand taller when Coach Joe is around.

Just to add a little more drama for you guys, his wife is from Milan and his cousin Jeff was the long time head football coach at Milan until a couple years ago when he retired.  Lots of family ties there and a traditional TN contender that is only about an hour from Mayfield.  Give Joe a chance and it will all come out in the wash and it will all be fine.
