Jones was let go a few weeks ago who do you think is the potential new head coach?
I would like to see a coordinator from Eastlake, Del Valle, Americas, Montwood, or Chapin. These programs are successful and know how to win. All we want is a HC that knows how to WIN. Who would want to come and apply though? We do not have loads of talent.
What about eastwood or canutillo?
DC Kevin Butler don't know much about him
OC Alfred Montes father of QB he ain't going anywhere
OC Ruben Rodriguez loyal to Coach Calderon don't think he's going anywhere
DC Tury Poblano should've got the Riverside job do not think he's going anywhere either
OC Primo Vasquez good offensive mind has great athletes at Chapin so why leave and build from scratch
DC Bill Schmidt don't know much about him
OC Dwan Smith good coordinator maybe an option and a chance to make a name for himself
DC John Villarreal don't know how long he's been a coordinator
OC David Telas former head coach at Horizon could be in the mix
Bel Air OC Richard Thomas former hanks grad good offensive mind front runner in my opinion
Parkland OC Don Scroggins applies for every job under the sun could also be a top choice
They should have done it the last time. It's time to bring Thomas home.
Who is the Canutillo defence coach? he would be a great candidate for Hanks.
Knight Class of '92 that is what I was talking about. We can't hire a losing coach. We need a winner. Proven programs only. Definitely not someone already on the Hanks staff. Hope all works out for our kids
You have a program that went 0-10, who would want that job. The area is land locked and the athletes are going to Eastwood and Montwood. You need to hire someone that has a vested interest in Hanks and has the work ethic to turn it around. Good Head Coaches will not be beating down the door for this job, give it to a hungry coordinator that wants to be there....
Well they just reopened the job either YISD like always didn't get the guy they want for the job to apply or there are really some bad candidates
The original closing date was November 27. I don't know what happened but they reopened it and extended the closing date
A buddy of mine told me that the job was opened on a Friday and closed on the Sunday over thanksgiving. He said a lot of people called and complained because they were out of town and didn't know the job would be closing that quick.
why does he deserve a chance......
Has anyone heard of possible candidates?
So besides Chip Kelly, who else is applying? Any specific coordinators in or out of town?
Now that the job has closed, has anyone heard who received an interview?
Don't think anyone has been called. They have to go through the applications and then decided who to give interviews to. Heard they want to announce before Christmas. If that is true then they will probably call on Mon. or Tues. and have interviews on Thurs. and Fri. so they can get it approved before the last day before vacation. Or they may wait until Christmas vacation is over. Who knows!
I am just curious to see who gets this job because I think with the right coach, this team could be dangerous. There is quite a bit of talent in that area. Good luck to whoever gets a call.
Interviews were yesterday who were the finalists
They were gonna introduce the hanks new head coach today to the kids
Congrats Coach Blair
If true, it looks like a great hire on paper. Hopefully he can turn things around quickly for all, but especially those who have one more year.
Boooooo!!!!So much for going to hanks games for another 3 years.
why is this a great hire on paper.......what has he done
The principal was at DV and brought in her guy. It's that simple and now Jesse Perales can brag how he has 3 assistants that have become head coaches before he takes of as AD for the district.
The buddy system at work. I applaud them for do it with no shame whatsoever.
More of the same at hanks, oh well, we will wait for blair to fail and O'Neil to go back to sisd again
They should have brought in some out of town talent. O'Neil is just paying back his favors. They could have sent a message to everyone that new, fresh blood was going to be brought in. O'Neil sucks...
Quit crying and start working. Last year both former coaches from Del Valle made playoffs in Burges and Montwood. A good program produces good head coaches. Hanks will be more competitive than last year that is for sure. Give them a coupe of years and they will be in the playoff hunt. Expect Hanks to be competitive, unlike last year. Out of town talent? Like they did when they brought in Cleveland? Please!
Blair should stick to low level softball and umpiring JV games, no way he is head coach material
It is what it is. On what basis do we evaluate assistants and foresee which one will be a head coach? My only concern is getting someone who has been a cooordinator for 10 years. To me the ones who have the "it" factor rise right away despite how young they are. Jones was also a long to coordinator and you could see why. I think Coach Garcia who is currently there has the potential to ge a great head coach. I was very impressed with his knowledge, demeanor, confidence and communication skills. Anyway, I hope Blair turns out to be a great leader. I hope he has an overall understanding of all three phases and let's his coordinators handle the details. I think Jones paid no attention to the defense last year. He acted more like a coordinator than a head coach in my opinion. I really really hope that Padilla and Garcia stay on board. I love how they have started the off season program and it will pay huge dividends in the season, I hope it continues. I hope Blair does great things, I had my own bias on who I wanted too get hired. But he is our guy now and we need to support him. I know in my heart that if these boys keep at the way they started this off season until the next season, we will make the playoffs. I have know doubt in my mind. I love this team and I love this school. Let's make it happen!
No announcement has been made we are all jumping to conclusions let's wait till they make the official announcement before we start talking trash about coaches.
That post is just ridiculous!! So if a coach doesn't win state then he's not good. How does that make any sense?
My question for you "one more year" how long have you been a coordinator or head coach and do you have "it" do you have "it"
