I’ve heard rumors but nothing I would say is factual. Like Mooresville, LKN isn’t a bad coaching gig, so I’m sure they’re making sure they get it right.

I’m hypothetically speaking but if it was me, Id think coach carter at Marvin Ridge would be the logical good fit here... having previously been on McNeelys staff at Lake Norman.

If true, I certainly question the sanity of their administration.

I hope I dont mean to offend anyone but you guys keep saying this and mooresville is a good job and all but what exactly makes it good? they are in a tough conference and the bottom 3 of that conference actually all lost their head coaches this offseason.  Has to be like taking over purdue in the big 10 or even vanderbuilt in the SEC right??? like I said, I mean no disrespect. just inquiring about it

As for Mooresville... great pay (one of the top in NC I believe), great facilities, great fan supports, and good athletes/talent in the program.

As far as LKN, idk what their pay is like but they have real good facilities, great administrator support and it arguably the fastest growing area of NC.

Lake Norman had a top shelf coach come back for a second interview but he has withdrawn from consideration.

They have two middle schools that feed into them.  Lakeshore Middle School and Brawley Middle School. I can promise you they haven't hired anyone from Lakeshore Middle School.  Brawley now that I don't know.

I wouldnt be shocked but i will be surpised lkn would go with a First yr coach, McNeely did leave LKN in a good spot but a good Veteran coach could prob do wonders. A First year coach would have set the bar him n do well and They would have big shoes to fill.

McNeely was a first year coach when he was hired, just saying. All good coaches have to start somewhere and Oliphant would be a great hire.

Agreed. I hope we can keep him on staff but I understand it would be really hard to because he is more than deserving of an opportunity to be a HC. For obvious reasons.... anywhere but LKN lol
