Asheboro is a one high school system, The city is not part of the county system. That usually translates to better pay with more perks without the red tape,
I have thought the Blue Comet program has the potential to compete deep in the 3A playoffs.
Btango hit it on the head. Page is a great job, but the possibility of 12-month pay(which I am not sure, but definitely probably 11 months), one Central Office, your middle schools feed your school, you can actually put your offense and defense scheme on the middle school level. It is a reason Newsome left Butler. That situation was much better than the one at Page. Newsome would have had multiple more championships.
It is only a few places where you can get the South Carolina treatment and this is one of them. Mooresville is another, Richmond County, and Scotland County to name a few. Posters will never understand that side of what coaches want.
What coaches want in the state of NC?
12 month contract if that is possible
A booster Club that supports the program
A feeder school that you can coach the coaches
A school that hires a football coach as teacher when needed
Not to teach a FULL LOAD of classes
Put as Many football kids in weight room as possible
A yearly football budget
Saying all this, I do not see anyone HCs on Chris List from the 4A programs that would leave at this point for Page job. Actually, the Forsyth Coaches would take a pay cut for that job. I do not see a few of the 3A coaches on the list leaving. The Alamance County boys do not leave town, they should, but for some reason, even the assistant coaches do not chase that paycheck. Teaching or coaching in Greensboro or Durham without moving would be a pay increase.
Asheboro has the talent to knock on the 3A door each year. They got the kids and I am talking those 5'10ish kids that can run.
