I’ve said it before... I absolutely love what Byrd is doing at Hopewell... hand him a program like Mooresville is I genuinely feel like the sky could be the limit for him. If I were placing betting odds, Hellams would be near the top, If not the top betting odd. Familiar with the traditions of our program, understands that family culture here, our senior group of players absolutely love him. And with there being a level of familiarity with those in charge with Hellams, I feel like that would be a safe pick for Mooresville. Those are two guys I have repeated to many people I feel like would be tremendous fits at Mooresville. Coach Snow is another one I feel would be a tremendous fit here... I’ve never met him but I feel like he runs his program in a similar way to that of Coach Capps... and Coach Capps is still thought very highly of around here.
Jenkins would be interesting... given the intensity of that Mooresville/Hough rivalry at times. Idk much about him but he’s run a strong program down there.
Coach McKee... love that man. He was our running backs coach when he was here.... and we were cranking out real good HS rb’s during his time. I think he has the same role at NM? But I’m not sure if he would apply here again.
Oliphant is another interesting one. Got passed over for Wells... so not sure Coach O would apply back here this soon. On top of that he’s doing good things at LKN, I think he is the kind of coach that will see that out.
I don’t know much about the other coaches personally but they all have pretty strong resumes. I look forward to see who we choose to lead and build this program.
side note, great choice to let Hoppy get that AD position. Genuinely a good dude and understands Mooresville better than most.
