Sad thing is he is still avoiding the kids, they keep asking him and all he does is laugh and say I will talk to you later. The kids are upset and he can't even sit them down and talk to them. He told one of them yesterday to get out of the weight room. He needs to go now because it will only continue to upset our kids more and that is not good. Be a man Kirk and tell the kids and be nice to them not treat them like they are nothing.

Wow I can't believe he would want to leave this fine,supportive community. He is better off, I fo r one feel sorry for the next man up, because unless he can go undefeated, scratch that, unless he can play everybodys little Johnny everydown at what ever position Dad wants him to play,new guy will be doomed as well.Last year you could sit in the stands and watch us compete with teams that in the past would beat us by 30 or 40 points,but yet all you could hear was coach is horrible, can't coach,bad guy,blah,blah and most of the time it was coming from people who really are not even sure what sport they are watching!!Good luck Mr. Kirk. and new guy coach I DONT ENVY YOU.Good luck and remember, it is not about winning it is about keeping the cry baby, clueless parents happy.

mark kirk is a coward, a punk, and a poor excuse for a man. Let me start off by saying the hiring of mark kirk was a terrible idea in the first place.If he wants to leave for his home state I understand that. But at least have the balls to be man enough to tell your players that have played their hearts out for you that your leaving. he has already started to box up some of the movies in his class room getting ready to move it. It is sad when all his players have to find out him leaving about from an article on the internet that their coach is leaving. Kirk has lied to his players numerous times about the situation. After his players read the article they went to his room to just simply ask him whats going on he laughs at them and tells them to get out of his room and will talk to them later. then later that day kirk had the nerve to go to the football work outs like he is still their coach after he has already accepted the contracted to go to Everett. well at work outs one of the players refused to do his work out because he is not the coach and hes going to work out on his own and kirk has the nerve to tell the kid "well get the hell out of here if your not going to do my work out" how can a he have the nerve to lie to his team, agree to a contract to coach at another school, not man up and tell him his leaving when the whole team already knows, laugh at them and tell them to leave his room when his players ask him about the situation, then get mad and yell and kick his a kid out of the weight room because they will not do his work out. i cant blame the kid theres no way in hell id have anything to do with him. all this happens on a tuesday. well today krik still doesnt man up and grow balls to tell his players whats going on. he will not even look one of the connersville football players in the eye or even acknowledge them. but he also doesnt show up for work outs today. just doesnt show up and all of the football players have to sit around the weight room and wait an extra hour for the weight room to be unlocked because kirk doesnt show up or tell them he wont be there. If you ask me kirk is nothing but a coward, a poor excuse for a man, and he can not leave soon enough he will not be missed. good riddance coward!

This is just a continuation of his behavior over the past 2 yrs. He is a terrible excuse for a coach, teacher and man. We are fortunate someone else took him off our hands. And by the way, my son did play...for the love of the game.

The question is...who will be the next coach? No one on the current staff has the ability to be a head football coach.

First, let me say I have no axe to grind with the coach. He took the team to the second round of the sectionals. Something that hasn't happened since the 90's. My question is for all the Bitchers,moaners. Complainers and tough guys. Why don't you go to him and say this stuff face to face? Are you really spineless pussies who can talk behind someone's back but aren't man or woman enough to take it straight to him? If so , shut up already. This coach has done more than any other since the 90's.

Shut the football team down. Apparently from the above post the team must be full of whining bitches!!! I didn't they let girls play on the football team!!! Straighten your panties out, get your balls out of mommy's purse and man up. The football team has sucked since the early 60s---that's 50 years of sucking money out of the school system. Kill the team....save the money
Your just a dumb ass. If you knew anything you would know football and basketball bring in all the money. If you cut football than you'd have to cut cross country and all the other small sports. Football helps pay for all the small sports. It's stupid ignorant people like you who crack me up. You run your damn mouth but you don't know shit. So next time think before you speak and make your self look stupid........

You know what,this isn't about everyone bitching at each other. Yes the couch should have told the boys he was leaving but the fact is he didn't.It is about the kids,there are boys on that team that love to play football and would like to have a winning season and work hard at trying to do just that. But every time a new coach comes in the kids have to start all over learning his stuff no wonder they don't have winning seasons. I say sign the coaches to more than a 1 year contract or in 1-2 years they will start over,it just keeps going on and on.

Ok this is all so stupid I have laughed the entire time I've been reading this. Neither the football or basketball team make any money guess where the funds to fix spartan bowl came from??? Thank your band and choir department because thats where it came from. Seriously this school corporation has their priorities in the wrong place. Just last night a full page of winners in paper who were those kids all musicians. Give the credit to the kids who have studied and been in private lessons perfecting their skill since they were in early grade school. How many professional athletes come from connersville?? now count the number of kids who go on and use their musical ability to earn a living?

Maybe if the band wouldnt demand doing the concessions at the football game, the football kids wouldnt have to sell calendars, gold cards,shirts, hoodies, etc. And the parents wouldnt have to foot the bill on the shoes & other equipment. Lets not get started on how our 20 member band is so wonderful....

you really want to go there first the concessions at the football games are the only money making project for band second band parents have spent thousands of dollars on multiple insturments for their kids the school doesn't provide those for them second the band actually makes money for every parade and event they are in third the band actually wins their competitions

how much money did the basketball team make? None so who fixed their floor? The 20 member band

OMG sure 500 people attending 4 football games a year pays for nothing. It may pay for some of the equipment used in football but thats it. Its boys and girls basketball that pays for everything. Football in this school system has sucked for 50 years. DROP IT!! Kids don't want to play..........you can't get a quality coach to come here AND STAY....and the athletic director is a carpet muncher. So you need to check YOUR numbers fuktard
Since you know so much, who are you? You must be a basketball fan. Did you not get to play football? Are you sad? If you are going to be so critical say your name....wait can't do that because you probably are some loser and don't want people to know who you are. Stay in Greensburg and play basketball there!

I played football at CHS. I live in Connertucky and also a property taxpayer. 500 people paying 5 bucks to attend 4 games a season.....that's $10,000. Most of those people buy all sport tickets so the money is even less.$10,000 doesn't buy squat. Maybe it's time some people seek reality. This school system needs to cut back on extra-curricular activities and trim the budget.
Ok, I will give you that you live in Connersville, I can believe that....BUT, please explain how you now the number of attendee's each game, the number of games, and it seems you don't know it all because you failed to mention the money the boys raise, the quarterback club which brings in money, and other area's as well. I know getting you to admit you do not know anything you are talking about, my last post because, but it amazes me how people think they know so much when realy they know so little, unless you do the books for the sports at school I would say you have zero knowledge so come on, let's get back to the crux of this thread... Coach is leaving, he is getting closer to home but the ones close to the situation are upset because he is spineless and can't respect the boys and reassure them it will be okay. Again you won't listen or understand this, but spend your energy and "advice" on things you do know...what little that might be.

Well, coach wad using, Connersville as a stopping point. Be was on his way to his home state. When a job opened up, he wad gone. That's what happened. It takes years to develpope a food program. 2 years is not enough. My son played. He worked his ass off and it made his grades go up and he got stronger.
Those of you who didn't play football will never know what it takes to go through a season. We finily found a coach who knows football and he moves on.
I'm sure the school will take the cheap way out and hire someone who play here and wasn't taught the real way to play. Then we will go back to ally of kids on the team but a bunch if pussys.
Two years ago coach had a team that Scott worked on. He lost . He took those same kids and should have won 5 games but 2 got away.
This town has a lot of unemployed people. The school makes money off the football program. We pay for everything but the visa ride. Most people have no insurance , it takes that for a kid to play. So this to me is the reason the numbers are down
I will do whatever it takes to let my son play. But some people spend money on smokes and beer, and let there kids sit and watch their parents have fun. Then they grow up and do the same thing.
Snodgrass was a good person. Hagerstown play in a lower glass. We play 4A . He should do better there.
Basketball is down too. I fought we will ever won a sectional again. Do we get rid of that too? If u don't like football go watch tv. Play Ur little kiddy games and let the kids on the football team show u how to be a real man.
Win or loose they still do what most of uccould never endure.
