According to the Bishop Brossart website, they are looking for an entire coaching staff for the Football teams.

 

I hope this doesn't discourage the returning Mustangs. They are not practicing until the staff is in place. Here is the link to the site.

Me. I will bring the beer, you can bring the footballs.

 

Why am I not surprised that BBHS would do this in June? That stinks for their kids.

 

This has been talked about since March arnd from what I hear the Principal did not want this to become public???? I know that the AD, and some of the close football boosters wanted this out months ago realizing that the best chance for a decent coach would be much greater at that time. Why he waited until now to release this info who knows, but the only ones who may suffer at this point will be the kids. I did hear that one or two members of the coaching staff may be retained which will help with the current players, but the schools next choice must be a SMART one. This incoming class of freshmen have some good talent and the right coach may fall into a very good situtation for the future, not to mention some of the kids they have coming back in the upcoming season which may help them become more competitive.

 

 

Nothing against Coach O, he is a very good person, but just not ready to develop a start up program. I commend him for trying to take on a difficult task, but this job needs to be filled with some experience.

 

Good luck on your search Mustangs.

Rumor had it that they approached the O-Coordinator at Campbell Co. (Keith Culp) to gage his interest. I assume there was none.

 

This type of screw up by the administration, could have long term affects on the viability of the program. If they don't have a full staff in Place by the time the dead period ends, I seriously question the wisdom of fielding a varsity team this coming season.

 

A real shame for the returning players!

Shame is correct. If I didn't know any of the kids there, I would think this is comical. However, I really liked the Ollier boys and they are classy people. Any chance BBHS will beg them to come back?

While I totally agree that the timing of this stinks, and is very unfair for the kids; especially without a new staff to bring in immediately. I've also been hearing about this for months, but assumed they'd decided to give the staff another year?

 

That said however, what has Brossart ever done to warrent the above statement?? They consistantly have some of the best run programs in NKY, and frequently overachieve in most sports; while always playing very aggresive schedules for a school their size. Kind of a cheap shot IMO?? :confused:

This entire situation is sad for all involved. I went through this myself when I was a freshman at Newport in 1994. The Head Coach left for what he felt was an opportunity that he could not pass up the last week of July. Bob Miller came out of retirement to try to hold the program together for one year. Newport ended up 0-10 and the downward spiral continued. The following year Roy Lucas Sr. came and if you remember correctly you will remember how things got a whole lot better for Newport in a hurry.

The situation at Bishop Brossart is very sad and all three sides (Coaches, Administration, and Players) are all at an extreme disadvantage at this time.

 

The Coaches: I want to say that Rodney Ollier and his entire family are a class act and Bishop Brossart was very fortunate to have them. You will not find another coaching staff that always put the players well being first. These Coaches now hope to be picked up by a coaching staff although chances are high that they will be doing it for free considering that most staffs are in place, contracts are signed, and all the normal teams across not only the state but the entire country are practicing right now. This is an absolute slap in the face for Coach Ollier. Rodney, hang in there, better days will come.

The Administration: Now that the Administration has shown just how naive they are about running a football program, they will now struggle to find a quality replacement. Bishop Brossart will not get a quality replacement unless a godsend miracle happens. Most coaches are teachers, such as me, and we are locked into contracts for the coming school year and already practicing. The administration better have a good answer, you better have a teaching position open that pays well or hope that a Para Professional (who in my opinion are some of the best coaches out there) can get there job schedules fixed so that they can run a varsity football team. If you are going to fire a football coach, at least do it in November-December-January so that the new coach can start off winter conditioning and get to know the kids. It takes a long time for kids to gain the trust of a strange man who is going to work their tails and at the same time make them believe that they can win.

 

The Players: The biggest disadvantaged of the whole situation, the players. They are the ones who this is supposed to be about. The players are as of right now doubting that they are good enough to be coached by anyone.

 

I want to tell the players this directly who read this website:

Many times in life, you will come across a hurdle that you have no choice but to jump. This is one of those hurdles and a good one for you to jump. Many times there will be a hurdle in the way and you are really not sure if you can jump it. My advice to you is to Control the Controllable Factors. Remember, you cannot control who is hired, fired, or anything else that involves the administration or coaches. These are factors known as the non-controllable factors. The controllable factors that apply to you are giving 100% effort in the weight room and also in running/conditioning. On defense, playing your gap and tackling, on Offense, blocking and taking care of the football, perfection in the kicking game. These are the things that are controlled by you. Coaches cannot block or tackle anyone for you, we had our turn and now it is yours. Regardless of who they hire, control those controllable factors and you will jump this hurdle. Good luck to Bishop Brossart

I will come out of Retirement and take the job.In all seriousness you could not have said it better Coach;) and I truly hope only for the kids sake that BBHS makes a good choice and they stand by whoever they bring in. Success does not happen overnight.:thumb:

I will agree with the statement that Coach Ollier and his brother and dad are class individuals and overall nice guys. But examine the situation that led to him being named coach. He was the third head coach in a span of about 2-3 weeks. First it was Carter, then Coleman (for about 2 days), then out of necessity, Rodney. By this time it was late July, he was named because he was available (already on staff as I recall).

 

With that being said, I agree that the timing is terrible. I understand that they have interviewed several quality coaches already and the one hurdle that keeps popping up is not having a teaching position in the building available.

 

Good Luck in the Search. Hopefully, you will be able to find someone who can get the ball rolling this year. If not, do what you can to get through this year, and make sure you have the right person in next year.
