There's been to talk of it. I'd think not. He seems like a good enough coach.

Coach Welch is a great guy he was and still is their for his students when ever they need him he was one of my fav. teachers of all time. I mean we are not perfect and everyone has problems but i dont care what anyone said and about him he is one teacher that would do anything for his students. I cant say that about all of KHS teachers Coach I will back you no matter what ever you deside. I mean look at kennett high schools football team this year its one of the best seasons kennett as had Coach we as the former students will back you up you let us know what we can do to help

If you let kids act like they want without displine of course they are going to like you. I also played for the coach and he had his few players that he would treat good but the rest of us he never talked to. And after football season was over you would never see him. And remember coaches you are not these kids "pals" If I have a son who plays football I want him playing for someone who is going to teach him right from wrong and how to act like a respectful man. Winning is secondary.

Welch has done a decent job at Kennett. The facts are he has done better than most of the previous coaches. Kennett is a hard place to coach at.

Why did he resign? I would have to argue the last entry he did better than the last coach but he did not do better than coach johnson or jack burns or ken shumate, who I would argue had a tougher schedule than what Kennett has now a days.

Coach Johnson was awesome back in the day. I see he's been reffing(sp) at some of the basketball games. He should have stuck with art and football!

I questioned my grandson who is on the team. He told me that before they took the field, Welch led them in a yell "F*(&Hayti" or whoever they were playing. what a role mode. I hope he is not coming back

For those trying to defend him. I think you need to know what he did to one of his own assistant coaches. He went to whoever Mr. Noble I think and told him that this person was not doing their job. Which if anyone knows this coach they know that he cares about the kids and does his job well. From what I understand he never spoke to the coach about any of this but went behind his back and told a bunch of lies on him. Due to this the coach was released from the H.S. staff after being there for some time. I have heard this same story from several different people within the school system.
So remember coach "instant Karma gonna to get ya"

i didn't play football and he was a great guy who cares what others say i know for a fact that he doesn't have fav. students he cares for them all so i think a lot of kids dont like him because he tells it like it is so way to go coach Welch I support you!

Hate to see Coach Welch go...He had KHS football headed in the right and winning direction.

the school board is an embarassment to this town.....if he had won the last 3 football games, bet he'd still have a job....or maybe if he had known the right people.

the board condones a dwi, socially inept principal, but can't tollerate a coach who takes his job seriously and has a 6-3 record.

just more of the same old, same old....one step forward and two steps back...

Right direction? How do you figure? He had a QB that could throw and a couple of recievers who could catch. Some of the past coaches in Kennett could have done the same. Beat small schools Hell, I could have done that and I'm old and decreped. The only difference is with the talent that Kennett had this year they should have beat Perryville and Dexter. And as far as coaching why would you pass the ball against Dexter with 2 minutes left and the lead? That one Dimensional pass game almost got Kennett beat by several teams. They had one play long pass to the wide rec. Please tell me how that is good coaching???? And if it is true about the morals he is teaching our kids he should have been fired a long time ago.

Football has always been top priority in Knt. If education was as important, then no doubt other employees would have been let go long ago.

I can't believe Coach Welch got fired! 6 & 3 record is great for KHS football! Someone said he was fired for cussing LOL! What about the administrator that got a DWI LOL, what a joke!
Coach Turlington use to coach like a sailor for years, and what about Don T? Coach Johnson was a church guy and they ousted him, plus a great coach.
Maybe the school board should fire Mr. Noble for gambling and drinking out on the golf course!

Oh you are so right Football is #1 in Kennett. You can tell by the frequent trips to the playoffs and the tons of district championships Kennett has won. From what I can tell the issue with the coach is not winning or losing, it is his charatcter and what he is passing down to his players. There seem to be several parents who are really upset about all this stuff. Yes the kids may like him because he acts juvenile. Similar to the way the kids like the show Jack Ass they like it because it is vulgar and rude. On the other hand parents do not want their children coached by someone who is going to do this. BOTTEM LINE! Win or lose.

Someone from the school board said he resigned, so don't start trashing the school board, maybe since Parr is graduating he felt it was time for him to move on.
