Checked the KHSAA website and he can not coach .the coach must report to the principal so he would be his own boss

"They" can't make an exception. It's not up to anyone here from what I understand. You sound really irrational with your "ole buddy system" mess.

Good luck to the boys in the playoffs.

They lost the first game and Delk was named day after. And no that person is not irrational with buddy system in Franklin. It starts at 1st grade and never ends. too much favoritism in the school system. It is the truth.

Since he will be the principal of the middle school, why wouldn't he still be able to coach the high school team?

In this day and time with the school in the shape it is in, I don't think it is a good idea to allow this to happen. I hope the school board stops and thinks before they make the decision to allow him to coach. No principal needs to be a coach. Esp when we are in the lower 10% of schools in Kentucky. Scholosser had to step down as football coach.

Why would the school board allow him to be coach and principal. If they allow this I hope everyone remembers this when election time comes. Do we want a principal or a baseball coach. No way on earth he can fulfill both and do it efficiently. If he wanted to coach then he should not accepted the position. But I am sure he was "asked" to take the principal without giving up coaching.

For the past few years, the position of principal at both the high school and middle school have been held by individuals that have absolutely nothing to do with Franklin, and we can see where that has gotten us. In my opinion, the high school has been neither consistent nor productive since the days of Frank Cardwell. Maybe the school board is willing to try something different and put someone in that position that is from here. Someone that was born, raised and educated here. Someone that loves Franklin-Simpson and returned here as soon as he could secure a position. Someone that is raising his children here and wants the scool system to succeed.
Someone that is not using this position to move on to something bigger and better, because in his mind this is the best. My husband and I went to school here when this system was the envy of all systems around. During those days, people in administrative positions lived here, they did not drive in from Bowling Green or some other surrounding community to do their job and go back home. As far as his holding both positions, personally I can't see how one will interfere with the other. Baseball is a springtime sport and he has assistants that can see to baseball while his is being princiapal. He won't be the principal of his players; they attend the high school. Craig Delk is a good man and we are lucky to have him.
