  1. In a way...he'd almost be his own boss, and it would just be one year of it or two at the most. Her contract won't be renewed and/or she'll hit the road on her own accord. As for the principal? I don't know how much he even had to do with it, but he is either right at retirement years or maybe even past it. The previous principal was fired by this same super for not firing an employee (Super wanted this person gone, put it on the previous principal who everybody LOVED...she didn't fire the person, Super then let her go), so he very well may just have gone along with it for the sake of saving his job.
  2. I personally don't think there would be any better time to do so than now- What could they do to him realistically if he got the job back? Ball is in his court now. Super has one more year left on her contract.
  3. Breathitt County 51-0 over Corbin 2002 Danville 42-7 over Beechwood in 2003 **Should probably go in the "Coaches Quote" thread, but following the Danville win....Coach Harp took my dad (Marty Jaggers, then Offensive Coordinator) into the press conference after the game...reporter made the comment/asked dad... Reporter- "Coach Jaggers. You all only attempted one pass in the game, comment on winning as big as you all did despite not being very BALANCED." Dad- "I think we were really balanced....this RB had 26 carries for over 200+. The other RB had 27 carries for over 200+." 🤣
  4. Granted....it was two years from the time I was fired (was then stated/made public I resigned), but the same Superintendent that fired me in December of 2014 at LaRue County was the same one that reached out, "ok'ed" on hiring me back in April of 2017. I never hesitated on taking the job back. I worked for him again just for the first year back, 2017-2018. We squashed things. Shook hands. Moved on. But again....it was a 2 year hiatus deal there, not the matter of weeks/month(s). I hope it happens.
  5. Same here, and I HOPE like no other that this happens.
  6. Bob Sphire just resigned this morning at Camden County, GA.
  7. He was also the HC at Hancock County in '99-'00, led Hancock to the Class A State Runner Up- coached '99 Mr. Football, Travis Atwell. 01-02 he was the HC at Dunbar- lead them to a 4A State Semifinal appearance 03-04 it was Campbellsville UNIVERSITY. He went 15-7, including a 9-2 season in 03 Then went to Anderson and they were a complete, total floating dumpster fire when he took over.
  8. Absolutely it does and quite honestly, it should... For years basketball programs get the same financial budgets at most ALL school's as well, despite carrying LESS kids and bringing in less money (boys and girls gates COMBINED sometime equal those of football, but it usually takes BOTH together)
  9. Ehhh....maybe the year that matches their total enrollment?! ....maybe?
  10. They are the 3rd biggest public school according to last year's enrollment numbers- over 2100 total and over 1100 boys.
  11. Some former college teammates of his are from/played and or live in Winchester. Some older Danville guys there as well. Probably where that has came from. I’m surprised they haven’t hired yet, though.
  12. The big PT booster is also the grandfather of their young QB.
  13. This isn't exactly going out on a limb here, but I just have a feeling that everything within reason is being revisited to try and get Wolfe.... If that happens or not? I don't know.
  14. And you were spot on. Coach McNamee had a very successful “1.0” stint at Pikeville in the early 2000’s after John Paul Chapman. Then went to Pike Central for those few years, and that just FURTHER goes to showthe struggle between good/great programs and the middle of the pack type(s).
  15. You very well might be right! My apologies if I messed up (which is more likely than not haha). Kinda puts things in perspective, though doesn’t it?
  16. Some coaching background knowledge. These are some notable head coaches in our state, current/former...where they are most known for and some background at their previous stops before taking/getting BETTER jobs. Robbie Lucas- Somerset 09-Current Head coach at Lincoln County in 02 & 03, compiling a 4-16 record. He goes back to Somerset as an assistant, takes over for Jay Cobb before the '09 season. Won it all in 2019 and constantly has his Briar Jumpers in the mix, and ALSO had an O'fer season is maybe 13 or 14? So you're talking three years at two different schools where his teams went 4-27, despite all the success he/they've had. Ty Scroggins- former Head Coach, Lou. Central., 07-16 Head coach at Doss 03-06, 18-24 record, only one winning record, no playoff wins. Central had always been a good program, but he took a corvette and turned into a supped up Maserati. Chris McNamee- Pikeville ('10- Current), Two State Titles & 1 Runner Up Head coach at Pike County Central 05-08, 16-26 record, never had a winning record, no playoff wins. Goes back to Pikeville as an assistant in '09, gets the HC job there in 10 and the rest is history. Doug Preston- John Hardin (formerly of Franklin-Simpson from 12-19) Head coach at Paris (97), Rowan County (03-05), Lou. Western (06-07), Bullitt East (08-10). Has a combined record of roughly 10 games below .500 at those stops (was the 4A State Runners Up at Bullitt East in 08) before getting the Franklin-Simpson job in '12. Goes 3-9 in 2012, then proceeds to make THREE STRAIGHT TRIPS to the 4A finals his last 6 years, winning back to back titles in 17 & 18. John Edge- Apollo (formerly of Owensboro Catholic 134-66 and 3 State Runner Ups) He also went to South Spencer (IN) for the 18 & 19 seasons & went 3-17. Sam Harp- former Head Coach, Danville ('88-'11), winner of 7 State Titles Before coming to Danville in '88 (replacing Tom Duffy who left for Highlands), Coach Harp had been FIRED at Calloway County, then heads to Anderson County as their HC where they win the Region Title in '87. Kevin Wallace- St. X (Formerly of Bowling Green '96-'17), winner of 5 State titles. From early/mid 80's- same of the 90's, he's the head coach at Warren East High School for 10 years. NEVER had a winning record, NEVER won a playoff game.
  17. Spot on. Which is completely bogus. Add Doug Preston to that same boat. Which blows my mind, because in the GCL “area” you have household names like Colerain who run the flexbone as good as anybody, and win BIG doing so. Kettering Archbishop Alter around Dayton bases out of the Wishbone (but, will get in the “spread”) and there aren’t but a handful or two of teams in KY that want any part of that smoke (I think they are smaller private school as well).
  18. Doug Preston left Franklin-Simpson for John Hardin last year, but his son enrolled at UofL- oldest child graduated from WKU and moved around Lexington, plus having other family in central KY.
  19. Right you are. That he did, but he also is “double dipping”- he is getting KTRS full pension + what he’s making at X. If he could’ve made at BG what he’s making now COMBINED, he’d have never left. Serious financial move on his end. That was/is the exception.
  20. I still stand by this, and you’d have to go back some 25-30 years IMO to prove otherwise. But (few) coaches leave state title winning/always in play jobs for those same jobs. Highlands very well may snag one, and if they do- I’ll eat crow. But I’ll have to see it to believe it.
