As a parent to a up coming freshman football player at cookeville high school, and as we'll as a fan of surrounding high school football. Me and my family are very excited to hear jimmy Maynard has been hired as the new couch. I think this to be a great hire, he has a proven record,and is known in this area as a winning coach. If am not mistaken his attributes include a state champion ship at riverdale as a asst. coach, taken upperman deep in the playoffs in the late 90s, and having some real strong teams at smith county. So lets hope he can carry on with that type of success. GO CAVS!!

I am hopeful Mr. Maynard can withstand the political pressures of Putnam County. Surrounding county school systems know the situation in Putnam so surely Mr. Maynard accepted the job knowing the difficulties and has a plan to overcome and make his team successful.

These parents of an upcoming junior on the team are excited to see what Coach Maynard and his assistants are going to do! Lots of untapped talent on that team. It may take a year to get the adjustments made but the overall athletic ability is there!

I played for coach Maynard in 96 at Upperman and went to playoffs and I tell ya folks he is awesome. He is tough and he won't pamper those kids but they won't get tired in the 4th qtr., they will be stronger than they ever have, and the seniors will demonstrate leadership. Cookeville has scored a great coach and will be better than ever. Far as politics go, it will always be there no matter where you go but there will be a lot less of it in Ckvl. than ever before. So sorry rich kids if your not the best man at the position you will ride the pine. And as Coach always said while smacking the side of your helmet with that 5A championship ring "defense wins championships". Good luck Cavs!!

Accourding to paper, other than his Smith Co record, he was 33-40 as a head coach. Good luck.

Actually 36-40. But I know you're just trying to antagonize with that statement because it means nothing.
He was at Sparta for 4 years, took a bad team and made them good.
Then 4 years at Upperman, took a really bad team and made them very good. Including a couple of seasons where they went deep into the playoffs.
Everyone knows when you start a rebuilding job you'll likely have at least a couple losing seasons at the start. And he rebuilt 2 programs in 8 years.
But now he won't have to rebuild. Just build on!
Good luck to you.

No, they didn't beat a team with a winning record this past season. But that's because EVERY other team in their district had a losing record. They can't help that.
In 2011 they beat several teams with winning records.
Including their win in the first round of the playoffs.
Maynord will be the man.
