Clean House???? It's easy to root for your team if they are always winning. They really need our support when they are not winning. Lets take a lesson from Cub Fans and root for our REDBIRDS no matter what. No disrespect to Cub Fans!

God forbid we dont want to be like Cub fans. What we need is for our children to get a Coach that can Coach. ONe that respect the children not run them away from the game they love. He has ran the entire Junior Class out of Basketball. Speaks well for his abilities.

Way to be a stick in the mud...These kids are in high school, not the NBA, so what if they don't win every game? And there's always people that gotta bash a coach in some sport in this town..How annoying. Let the kids have fun in a sport they love, and leave all the trash talk out of it. Go Birds!! Boo Haters!!!

I heard Toney is an assistant coach at Marion. Does he still teach at WF? That doesn't seem likely.
Not really

Coach Toney was an excellent coach..didn't have tons of talent his last few years. But no body GOT RID of him,he retired.
I think the new coach will be alright,he's young and so is the core of his talent.Its kind of unfair to judge his ability until he has a few years and a fair amount of talent to work with.....just my opinion.
Just Wondering

A good coach can take no talent and win at least a few games.
How many games have we won in two years. I think one.
Lets see what happens this year.

so he is coaching in Marion? Is he teaching there too? I don't see where ethically he could do both.

i think when someone has been teaching 25 plus years in a district and been an amazing asset to a community, and no longer coaching, can go somewhere else... That's a complete joke you are calling him unethical.. He did a great job for west frankfort while a coach and poured his heart and soul out.. The guy still wants to coach... U think he is gonna be an assistant for a team he was just the head coach for?? Coach Toney is an amazing coach and person and is much respected by the players that played for him... If he is leaving school early to go to Marion, I see that as being wrong.. Sorry, my son says he gets to practice around 4 cause he is faithful to his contract..

Maybe unethical was not the word I should have used. I have nothing against the man but it does not seem right to teach in one town and coach in another. I was not aware that that was an option because I have never heard of this situation before.

I think its time for the athletic diector to step up and do his job.The problem starts with 7th grade coaches on up.They coach how they want play six boys everybody else sits.Of the six by the time they get to high school mabey three are still playing the other boys that have not played either quit or are so far behind on fundamentals that we can't compete and thats the situation our progam is in now!The school board is on the hot seat an election is coming up.Who is going to go coaches, athletic director,school board members,time will tell but something better start changing soon or there won't be a sports program!

Very well said...A friend of mines son is on the Freshman team, and he sits because the 5 stars are in all the time...I don't understand not letting everyone have a chance to be the star..We lose games most times anyway, so why not let everyone have a shot? It won't make or break anything..All parents put in the same effort, especially those boys.
