Coach Carson is one of the best football coaches I have ever been around.  He was a coach that you either loved or you didn't because of his old school style approach to coaching.  Good luck to him as  I am sure he will return to his home state of South Carolina and find a job there.  I am sure there will be plenty of interest in this job.

Great coach!  Love talking with him.  He lives the game.  He will head back to SC which is where he is all week preparing the NC boys for the Shrine Bowl.

Appears that Carson will be Head Coach at West Oak HS in SC.

Of course, you won't be able to read any free articles from this newspaper, but that's none of my business.

If I were new to teaching and coaching I would begin my career in South Carolina. Why wait for NC retirement. Get your money now for the next 25 years.

Apparently South Carolina recently changed their pension plan which has really changed the dynamic of teaching.  Of course, those teachers who had been teaching in SC are grandfathered in, but new teachers do not have the same pension.  The pension and retirement plan in NC really is good, so it makes sense to put your time in NC and then make the switch.

North Carolina has also been entertaining a different approach to retirement plans. The last year there has been talk of going more toward a contribution plan to reduce cost. Don’t be surprised to see a drastic change in both health and retirement benefits.

Sooner or later it is going to be an even more unreal struggle to get and retain quality educators.

This is a great school and given the success and the location, will make it very attractive to coaches.  I thought Justin Hardin did a great job a few years ago laying a foundation with guys like Anthony Boone at quarterback and obviously Tim Carson, who's one of the best in the business, came in and really took them to levels never thought attainable.  

 

I remember back in the early 2000's, the Weddington program was probably one of the worst around but times change and this is now a powerhouse in the 3A ranks. 

 

I think with the staff that Carson has assembled, you don't have to look far for a head coaching candiate.  One guy I like a lot who's already on the staff is Andy Capone.  He's still young but he's very smart and has all the tools to be a solid head coach. 

 

Of course I think there will be several good candidates and if I were the administration, here may be a list of guys I'd be looking at. 

 

Brian Hales; Head Coach at Butler.  I know many would think that Hales would never leave Butler but this could be a perfect situation for him to leave the CMS system and not having to move since he lives local.  Obviously Hales is one of the best in the business and I'd want him leading my program. 

 

Joe Evans; Assistant at Myers Park, he's been a head coach at Independence and Ardrey Kell and would have the credentials to take over a program like Weddington. 

 

Mark Harman; Assistant at Myers Park, former head coach at West Mecklenburg, he's one of the smartest and brightest football coaches in Mecklenburg County.  

 

Jason Fowler; Head Coach at Olympic; he lives on the East side of Mecklenburg County and in my opinion would be a great choice at Weddington because I think it fits his style better in terms of being very aggresive on defense which would fit his personality much better. 

 

Barry Merritt; Assistant at A.L. Brown, he lives very close to the school, he's got a tremendous resume which includes winning a National Championship as a student assistant at Appalachian State, and he's worked at some great schools to include A.C. Reynolds, Pinecrest, as well as being the defensive coordiator at North Iredell.  His father Tom Merritt was also a head coach in Union County 30 years ago.

Those are just head coaching jobs. There were some assistant jobs in the 70s and since his last HC job in Washington.
