Ex Chapin Qb Marco Chavez just came back to coach at Chapin this past season after coaching several years out of town. He will be the next head coach at Chapin!! You heard it here first!!
I hope they take their time and even think outside the "Box" for this one.
Montwoods HC, DC & OC.
Aaron Ocampo from Centennial HS in Cruces may be interested. Haven't heard anything direct other than he's keeping an eye on the good El Paso jobs. He would have an immediate impact.
Please take Coach Warner from Franklin! We will throw in Coach Walker as well. Coach Torres should be the Franklin head coach before he leaves for another school.
No its not. Take all three.
That is the problem with El Paso they hire from within or former alumni, how many coaches are from outside of EP and I mean east of the Permian Basin?
I had heard he was from Luke north Dakota or something I could be wrong and the rest of those guys
Bowie coach, Buryl Baty in 50s won 3 district championships was from Paris Tx, an QB @ Tx A&M
Allan Sepkowitz:, Amarillo Tx,
Bob Savage, 11 time dist champions Bel Air
Savage and sepkpwitz have.
Sepkowitz has been to the 3rd round which means they have beat put if town teams
The only time Allan Sepkowitz coached a Andress team past an out of town opponent in the State Playoffs was in 1990 when Andress beat Midland Lee on a game ending tie 21 to 21. Officials gave the win to Andress due to penetrations which is what they went by back in the day in an event to a game ending tie. That was the only time Allan Sepkowitz coached Andress to a win versus a out of town opponent in the State Playoffs. So Rudy the answer to your question is 1 time in his long tenured head coaching career as Andress head coach and that is the truth.
This was the original question.....”Besides Coach Melton at Americas, name one out of town coach that has been successful in El Paso.”
Typical El Paso...anytime someone brings up something about jobs people bash on current El Paso coaches, past El Paso coaches, and bring up how they need to hire an out of town coach. It doesn't matter who you bring in if the culture of the city, community, and district do not change. Coach Hernandez did a great job while at Chapin and I wish him nothing but the best in whatever he decides to do. Winning in the state of Texas is not easy, especially in the playoffs. When it comes to El Paso football we are already at a disadvantage. It's called Bigger, Faster, Stronger...El Paso teams do not match up well against a lot of the state. Every once in a while El Paso will produce a team that can compete, but it is not on a regular basis. El Paso has done a great job of closing the gap between us and the Permian Basin, and that has shown when we play them year in and year out, but the gap between El Paso and the Metroplex, that is a whole other story. They need to hire the best person for the job, whether it is someone from out of town, or someone from the current staff who can build on what has already been implemented. Consistency is what builds a program. There is a solid foundation at Chapin but there needs to be some tweaking to help it progress. The reason why successful programs in Texas are successful is the fact that they are PROGRAMS. When you step foot on campus there is an expectation and everyone knows it, how many programs in El Paso have a culture like that? My guess is there are none. Knowing the expectation and believing and following that expectation is what makes your program successful. So with that being said good luck with the new hire and I hope whoever it is they are welcomed and given a chance to be successful.
The comment was made because someone posted that we needed to look to east Texas to bring in a coach. Out of all the coaches over the past years that have come from east Texas name one that has had success. Cleveland at Hanks made the playoffs one year, the guy Parkland hired left after one year, Socorro took a shot with a couple of guys with no avail. I don't know why people think the coaches in east Texas are better than the coaches here. My hats off to notradamus for telling it like it is. In schools west of El Paso, you have a backup that is comparable to your starter. In El Paso, if your starter gets injured or quits the backup is usually a significant drop off from what you had. This is not a knock on the kids, they're doing the best they can. The problem is we have 32 schools in a city that should have about 15. The talent is so spread out it is hard to compete with other teams. For example, Midland has 143000 people with only two high schools, El Paso has 683000. If we were to build schools like Midland, we would only have 9 high schools. If you want to count Greenwood in the Midland mix it would still drop our school numbers to 13 or 14.
Yeah those coaches that arent el paso guys suck. We shouldn't hire anymore.
So what is the word? Who all is applying for this job? I saw that the deadline to apply is the 20th.
Doesn't matter who applies.....it's Marco Chavez's job!
Can enlighten us on Coach Chavez background as a coach, I know he was the QB at Chapin back in the day and went to UMHB. After that what? That makes him the man for the job
Heard coach poblanos is applying.
Also heard Rubens torres and ryan Warner name thrown around
Don't know why everyone is intrigued. This is going to go to Marco Chavez. The interviews are just a normality.
It’s not Chavez
Not sure if it has been announced or will be announced soon, but I think that Coach Warner from Franklin would be a great fit for the Chapin program. He has been around winning programs for a while and has had a chance to learn from a good one in Coach Walker. I do not know how many wins that makes for him, but I think that he has a good foundation to build on and I personally think he would do a good job if given the chance to take over Chapin's program. That being said...good luck to whomever is named the Head Coach at Chapin.
