If you pay them peanuts you are going to get monkeys. Boyd county has the lowest pay scale for coaches and teachers in the area.
Not a Great Program

Dear Boyd Football Fans,
In reading post after post on here, I just have to ask - what great football coach do you think you are going to find? Here is a program that has truly only had 5 good seasons since the early 70's (2 with Chaney/Keelin, 2 in late 80's -'86 & '87, and 2003). Face it - Boyd has never been an elite football program, or really even a very good program. Those two great teams of the 80's had great players (Craycraft, Chaffin, Donta, Russell, etc.) and still lost in first round of playoffs to Boone County. Face it fans, it's hard for any team in this area to be elite in football in Class 4A and above. Regardless of what people say, there isn't a ton of talent walking the halls. As much as you want a great coach to be hired chances are there aren't many great applicants to choose from. Also high schools aren't like colleges where they can throw money at people and hire them. As frustrating and lengthy as this process this has been please be supportive o whomever I hired but also temper your expectations as being a GREAT football team every year in this part of the state is a bit unrealistic.

Well I think we could have a good team ,but its not only the coaches that make it ,I think the parents need to stop acting all high and mighty and get off their high horse and let the coaches coach notthe parents.I also think that boys need to start acting like a team and not against each other as many times i have heard this from one boy cussing another and then another boy and so on.They make some kids feel like crap and those are the ones that has the heart to play but is not givin a chance because little billy over there or his parents stop that real fast.Some kids are just there to be wearing the jersey and thats all and they are taking a spot from someone that really wants to play and maybe even better ,but with that being said I guess it well never change ! Boyd County is about who you know and who you blow and if you are friends with the coach or his son.I also think they need to get a coach in there that dont know the parents or the boys and start fresh that way no one can say nothing ,but then after a while when the parents start tagging after the coach that well change also so it well be damned if they do and damned if they dont

The committee has voted 12-0 to hire Coach Brooks.
It's now up to Rhonda Salisbury and site base council to hire him.

He teaches at the middle school and I believe he was an assistant at Huntington high...that's only what I've heard, though. Judging by how he's approaching the people who will be helping him, he seems to have been a good choice. Only time will tell, though.

Let's see would you want your child to play for Boyd or fairview ? No thought there coach Mcpeek is star in the making and has built great program in Westwood!
