Shelby has never went wrong hiring from within. Looks like most people think they will do it again. I think Hollifield will get the AD job if he wants it. Who knows, maybe Devine comes back to SHELBY which is basically a family hire.

I've thought about that move as well, which certainly would make sense. 

I don’t see him leaving his Alma mater. Maybe I’m just a homer but I just don’t see it. I think their next head coach is currently on staff.

I think it comes down to Coach Emory or Coach Devine. 

Nah if it’s from inside I’d bet the Hawn or  Wilbanks. Going outside would not surprise me.

I hear 98Champion has been in therapy since the rumor started. He’s terrified they will go back to the wing t. 

:D  LOL. Na, the precedent and system has been set.  It is proven.  Whoever takes over I would imagine will just continue exactly what Ware has put in place.  I mean we have people like Nepsy, I mean work7, and Wrigley coming down on the little boy thread. 

 

Whoever does take over is inheriting an absolutely loaded team.  We should "6 outta 7"-peat.  I hope that week 3 slot fills with one of those big boy schools.....wink, wink.

Welcome back 98. What took you so long after I called for you? Who you got in the lead for the job?

Teams don't always respond to the new coach the same way they did to the old one, even if it is a inside hire. Sometimes the new guy gets the big head and wants to show everybody who's in charge. Sometimes it's the opposite, they haven't developed the nerve or dicipline to take charge. A lot of times with a new coach, kids will push back a little harder testing the water you might say. 

I'm not saying any of this will happen, y'all got a heck of a program over there. I'm just saying it's possible.

When we hired inside after coach C retired it really hurt our program. Kids didn't believe in the coach and refused to play, thus our current lack of participation. I believe Shelby will be fine either way because football is such a priority, but from experience hiring inside isn't always whats best.

I agree that it has been next man up for Shelby, but there are some outside guys with significant ties to the area, whose names I've heard, so we'll see.  At least they'll have options. 

Let's 'speculate' for a moment if they were to look elsewhere, who would be some of the top names???

1. Aaron Brand (Vance)

2. Jamar McKoy (Huss)

3. Shane Laws (A.C. Reynolds)

4. Adrian Snow (West Forsyth)

5. Brett Chappell (Pisgah)

6. Joey Robinson (Mountain Heritage)

7. Bobby Carroll (York)

8. Dan Jones (Gaffney)

9. Mike Newsome (A.L. Brown)

10. Brandon Gentry (NW Cabarrus)

Joey Robinson ..words can't describe the job he's done here at Mt Heritage glad to see him get a little recognition from someone as knowledgeable as you Chris...

Heard it was because there is a shift towards youth soccer in Lincolnton.

A number of things but soccer isn't one of them. The absence of the Boger City Steelers (our youth feeder program) in recent years was the main cause. We finally got that organization back under "Lincolnton" control so hopefully numbers go up again. As I've said before, athletes are here just got to get them out to play. Last coach didn't recruit the halls.

What!s the hold up here?

To many candidates, I'm guessing. Def not staying in house to take this job. Maybe top five jobs in NC

Heard again at the banquet which I think is next week.  Also heard in house again which I thinks make since with a possible banquet announcement.   Of course these are water cooler talks.

My sources are telling me that they hope to be able to announce a coach prior to spring break, so hopefully we'll hear something soon.  I am aware of some coaches who have been called for interviews, so I'm not sure if that means they'll hire in-house or not, but they're at least talking to some guys.

Hope they hire someone who uses all the skill players available. Not some simpleton who connot think out of their little box. I really tire of coaches who are unwilling to change. And it’s a bunch of them out there.

Even a new coach will not stop the Golden Kitty Kats from rolling the 2A or 2AA. Only question is if they finish without a blemish which might be tough with the schedule they have.
