How about some details on how he treats them. Without them your post means nothing

He treats those boys like dogs, and Robbie Heatherly has known this for years and lets him by with it, and the parents know it also, and no one will do nothing about it. cause he tells his players he will throw them off the team if they repeat anything he says behind closed doors.

I understand Robbie covers and protects him for some reason, but he was not Robbies selection, Robbie was at LMS when this fellow was hired. Lets recall Gary Seale and Jim Pierce picked this guy. However that does not excuse Robbie from doing his job.

You are right, No Robbie did not select him, But he does have say so over what he does, and he does nothing about it what is up with that? I think they both need to be fired for covering up for each other.

He's an excellent coach. He consistently wins or comes close to winning games he should be blown out of due to mismatched talent. If coaches are mistreating players, that's one thing. Just ask Mike Leach from Texas Tech what happens if you do that. But all coaches have their own way of handling practices, locker rooms, discipline, etc. That's the way it should be. I don't know him personally. I only do as you all should and judge his overall body of coaching work. And that, so far, has been outstanding.

I think CC TEACHER and Fan and Jason and JUST WANTING TO KNOW are the same person just wanting to start some crap about a good coach

Who ever wrote this #1 needs to learn how to write, and #2 they have to be a crazy psycho parent that never played sports,#3 this has nothing to do with Barry Jones. Get a life and quit bringing elemetary kids into your miserable life. I saw in the paper that Les had won 3 straight championships you should be happy that your daughters team won. One other thing I happen to know Doug and he is a great guy he graduated in 1992 so who cares what happened 18 years ago, and what does Doug have to do with this topic. Please get a life. I dont know who you are, but im sure most people associated with you will know who you are.

seems strange that the parent of one of the players went to the school everyday before the season even started and talked to the coach, got himself put on the coaching staff, had practice closed to all other parents and what do you know his daughter walked away with 2 of the 3 awards. even though she was not the leading scorer or rebounder.

So he is a good coach because he loses close games? I would have thought that a good coach may win his share of those close games but it seems that by just hanging in there we are making basketball into horse shoes. I guess if that is all you can bring to the table to classify him a good coach, have at it. Oh, and I think they had yet another close loss tonight after leading most of game! Look out John Brown, these guys on here may want that name on gym changed pretty soon if we keep on racking up close losses!

I do not recall anyone questioning his faith. I do not recall anyone having question about his teaching ability. In fact I personally never picked up the press to check Mr Jones test scores out from the previous week. I do however check out the basketball scores and despite the above poster that is thrilled with close losses, I do not know many fans, parents, or players that get too many thrills with being defeated in close games.

I would like to hear from some folks that know if some of the weird stories I am hearing are true. Things that go on in practice?
