Been there ten years. Three state title games and one title.
Will increase his pay by at least 20% with much better working conditions. This also increases his retirement.

And again.......could have been fired at anytime for any reason without a whiff of this loyalty that is supposed to exists. Joe Evans went 12-1 for Indy in 2014 and was fired in March. Miles Aldridge was fired 3 weeks ago. Scott Young was fired one week before the season began.....Talk to me again about that loyalty thing.

How long should he have stayed to prove his loyalty?

Most people in the profession think Gillespie and his staff have did an excellent job. Summers was a special player but the o line and d front were pretty strong, also.

I see this fella Ted Roe is at it again just on a different site...He is doing everything he can to muddy the waters...Sounds like most posters on here know Coach G for who he really is, which is a good coach, a good family man, and a great friend...

 

I coached with him on the 2011 team and coached with him for 7 years before leaving for Florida...Your comments about James Summers calling his own shots and putting himself in on defense are one of the most delusional things that I've ever seen...I was in on every single call and pretty much remember every single play that was called, and I can assure you James did not call his own number...James did however take over the game and have some spectacular plays, because the kid was just a man among boys out there...Dont forget that he had some pretty good players playing along side him as well...James also would go in at free safety whenever it was 3rd and long and obvious passing situations...This substitution was called by Coach Weeks (the awesome defensive coordinator that we had)...Your comments Ted Roe are pretty comical though...The more you speak (type), the more it stinks like doo doo...Dude, if you want to take your kid to get more playing time some where else, then go...If not, then help your kid better...Coach G is one of the most fair coaches that I've ever been around...Even to the point of sitting D1 level athletes during crucial games for disciplinary issues...I've seen it time and time again while i was there...He even suspended a D1 kid who went to the University of California (wont mention the kids name) from the team, because the kid consistently showed up late to practice or missed practice...How many coaches just wash their hands of a D1 caliber athlete when they dont conform to team rules?..Not too many coaches will...Heck, James even had to sit for whole half playing Pinecrest in the 1st round...The NC State coaches who were recruiting him thought it would be a good idea for James to skip the playoffs to get ready for the upcoming college season which made James miss a practice.  Coach G sat James for team rules...How many coaches do this???..There are some great guys (coaches) there in North Carolina who would also, but for you to keep spewing at the mouth and not know what you are talking about is asinine...Its either that or you are having too many sips on the ole bourbon while you are typing...

 

Ted Roe, I'll be glad to have a conversation with you any day...I'll defend Coach G any day as well...He is the best high school head coach that I've been around thus far...Asheboro is getting a great man and a great coach...Leaving Page wasn't an easy decision for him...Heck, the papers even said it took three times before they could finally come up with the right deal to get him to leave, which was a true statement...He had no intentions of leaving that program as I just met with him in Feb at a clinic in Orlando...All he talked about was the players that he had coming up and how excited he was to see them take over...If he had any plans of leaving, I'm pretty sure he would have mentioned it...He was there for 11 years, and he gave everything he had to that program...Don't try to diminish the accomplishments that he had, because it just makes you look like a fool...Any more questions you need to know Teddy Roe?

More comedy. Let me get this right.....He should have stayed and showed loyalty to the kids but he was a shitty coach and the kids won all the games by themselves??? SO THEN WHY WOULD YOU WANT HIM TO STAY???

Summers was special. Probably top 10 that I have seen in NC but that was a well coached....hard nosed squad that gave no quarter. You dont come back on Butler like they did in Rd 3 that year without very strong coaching and culture.

Ted is at it again. Glad someone with actual knowledge set the record straight. Best of luck to Coach G as well as the Pirate program. They will find a worthy replacement.

Good lord, that is some of the worst trolling I have ever seen... You don't truly believe what you're typing do you? If so, I feel sorry for you. Research and facts will help you go a long way.

Have you worked at one job all your life? Would you turn down a huge pay increase and better working conditions? He gave Page 10 years and 3 titles. They were extremely well coached, talented or not. Talent needs coaching to win titles. Now, get over it and act like an adult living in the real world.

I'm looking forward few years from now when Montgomery Central shows Asheboro who the top dog in the area really is. In my opinion West would beat them now including last several years. Good luck to the Comes on the other hand look forward to the future

You really have to be a special kind of ignorant to first come on here and whine because he left but then tell everyone how terrible of a coach he was. Then to put the icing on the cake tell us he was a man with no character. Truly amazing.

If that is true I think it's a really average hire for Page.  NW has went downhill since he took over.

Another coach from down east applied for the job. This particular coach has been to multiple state titles and has won one. I'm trying to be politically correct when I say this. He doesn't fit the demographic that leadership is looking for.

Yep. Underwhelming... You'd think a school like Page would be flooded with potential hires. Granted, it is a bit late in the game.
