to the person who said this isnt a winning bunch. You have not known them long then.i have no kids at wg and no affiliation with the school but my kids have played with and against most of those boys and those boys are used to winning. They are talented hardworking young men in many sports. and not that it matters but i was also not impressed with their coach when we have played them .

I know Coach Douglas well and in my opinion he has 2 things working against him. First, he's a great coach but he's an outsider. That means he doesn't have picks/favorites and everyone is treated the same, regardless of who their parents are. That doesn't seem to go over too well in this area. Secondly, some parents tend to believe their children are special and should be allowed to do whatever, whenever without consequences. Unfortunately, that isn't how life works. It appears there are some adults that need to learn that lesson before they can teach their children. This coach has treated my kids with the upmost respect at all times. Perhaps that's because my children have always respected him. I've never heard him curse nor have I seen him behave anything other than professional on the court. But way to go Greene County, I'm sure he won't be around much longer and who could blame him? Instead we'll get a "hometown" coach who will keep all the whining parents happy by letting their kids play whether they earn their spot on the team or not.

To PARENT: I totally enjoyed your post. If he is an outsider you are absolutely right. I played sports and go watch the high schools play them. Been out of school a good while now. I have never heard so many bad things about coaches in our school system in my entire life. You would think these kids were getting payed to play. About the cussing, if you parents complained to the coaches I had, the players wouldn't be the ones hearing the cussing. It would and should be you hearing it. You probably would of gotten your butt whipped by the coach too.

Uhm im a former WGHS student the boys basketball coach is not a bad person. Hes highly big on God, you all are just hating on him because you dont like the way he does things. You all are just starting drama n thats it. Grow up n be mature adults.
