Not until they let the coaches coach and the parents stop running every decent one they get out of there, I hear there are some already talking about transferring to Battle. Look what that coach has done with that program, plus there is too much for kids to get into now a days. Too many politics and busy parents calling the school board yada yada!! They needed to leave well enough alone he Wheeler turning the program around then poof all of sudden they have no coach again... then they ask his son to do it...ridiculous!!

I would NEVER send my child to Battle. Lots of skeletons in closets there.

NO coach will stay at VHS as long as he is told who to play, who not to play, and when to fart and not to fart. One coach that left a couple of years ago actually told them unless they leave the coach alone they will not keep anyone. So far they haven't listened. Anyone with a teaspoon of common sense and does a little bit of research will soon find out why the coaches keep leaving and will not want to come here.

Believe me folks, these complaints are not unique to VHS. Up at Abingdon, you can pretty much hear the same things, especially after AHS got their clocks cleaned by Battle and Cave Springs. I'm sure Paul Wheeler would be welcomed at Abingdon. He's an excellent coach. BTW why did he quit?

The principal made some bad choices. School board begged Wheeler not to leave but he'd had enough.

You would certainly have a top knotch person and coach if you got Paul Wheeler, but I would say he will enjoy retirement. No school board members, no administrators, no parents to deal with. He will ALWAYS be highly thought of in Bristol.

School board approved a new coach tonight. The stop watch is running. We shall see how long this one lasts.

I certainly can't blame him. You're right, no parents whining, no school board to deal with, etc. It's just a shame that such a top notch coach becomes so disillusioned that he retires, resigns, or whatever. Let's face it, there aren't that many excellent football coaches in this area.

Glad Thurman left, he was a joke!! Should of had Wright to start with instead of Thurman. Wright was in the top 5 and some how Thurman come out of no where and got the job. Wheeler was a great hire and he got done wrong, but he was going to retire after 2013 anyway.

And all those other years Battle got their butts handed to them by Virginia High! Took a Bearcat to straighten Battle out these past 2 years! In the 4 years I played against Battle we never lost. We always won by 20 or more. I was 6 years behind Wright at VHS and he was an assistant when I played. I have all the respect for him in the world, but this ride Battle's on is not going to last. It would be different if a few from Battle would act like they've won before, but you all get 2 good seasons and act you all have had a top notch football program for the last 43 years. Battle beating VHS is like VHS beating THS. They will be few and far between.

You really sound like a ignorant Battle parent. Look at all of the years VHS not only whipped but stomped Battle. VHS gave Battle a run for their money, Battle was a easy win all those years.

LMAO. You are nuts. How does that statement make parents sound like a cry baby and sore loser? VHS stomped Battle for years and now Battle for some reason thinks they are hot crap because they win one??? I am so proud to be a VHS fan. Battle sux and they just got lucky. LMAO.

So true. another ignorant battle fan. They are just jealous of all the wins VHS had over them and one little win from Battle makes them think they are hot crap. From what I can remember Battle always sucked until this coach came to the school,

New Coach

VHS has always beat Battle until this past year. The VHS football players have had 3 coachs in the past few years and another coming, so they have not had much stability lately but they still seemed to hold it together and play pretty well. I think this new coach will do amazing things with the team. Battle won 1 year in the past 25 years from what I was told. Give it to them. VHS will get them this next season. GO BEARCATS!
