Who will be the new coach at LC? They should be talking about spring practice right about now - has anybody heard anything?

You didn't hear this from me but..... I heard due to the abundant amount of talented athletes and their basketball savy parents
PAT SUMMITT will be the next Lady Panther coach !

Maybe one of the basketball savy parents will step in and coach these sweet girls until they hire someone. After all, they have more knowledge and skill than Coach Lee had---and they are not "out of touch" with the new coaching methods. The only people who lose in this mess is the girls that weren't involved in getting him fired, and could be thinking of summer practices, team camps, etc. Don't know that there is a coach out there that can satisfy these parents! Good luck on finding this person.!

Why would Todd Wright leave MC? He's been pretty successful there.

Let's hope he can rescue some of the talent the Juniors have and nurture the new talent. Good Luck Coach!

I'll step in and take the Job. Maybe I can talk Joe Lee into helping me out. Or maybe he will swap places with me.

The problem Coach Lee has had at LC is he had no talent to work with. Bruce Peral or Pat Summitt couldn't have made a team out of no talent. Face the facts people.

The girls officially have a new coach, Todd Wright, from maryville College. He has a winning record and hopefully will turn this program around. Then we will see that there is talent on this team when they have what they need in a coach.
GOOD LUCK

You people who keep making remarks about no talent, you must not watch the game. I have seen the Parks girl play and she is a good ball player and a team player but she is alot better on her AAU team. Wonder why? I have seen the Powers girl play, good ball player. Robinson girl is a good ball player. I was at the game she had 18 pts and Parks had 17 pts and they played great together. Parks is a great passer and hit this girl almost all night long. Went and watched the Marriott girl play, what a improvement. She plays with the Knoxville Panther like Parks and that kid can handle the ball plus team player. Its there but noone to pull it out of them. I see a change! WATCH OUT CAUSE NEW COACH, NEW TEAM. JUMP ON BOARD OR SHUT UP.

I've seen girls who sat on the bench during LC high school games play in AAU and score 15 to 20 points against excellent players from teams like Farragut, Bearden, and Maryville. So, what is the difference? I don't think it is a lack of talent.

THIS WAS IN THE PREP XTRA EDITION. IT'S TIME TO TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK AT THIS LOSING BASEBALL COACH!!

The football, girls basketball, and baseball program are all connected by family. It's really time for a coaching change in baseball as well. This year, they did not win a single district game. They will get no better. Mr. McNish has had almost 10 years to move the program forward and it has not happened. There are certainly improvements to the facilities, but that doesn't make the team play better. His inability to motivate and encourage the players hampers his ability to win games. It would help if he would learn to communicate with the parents instead of locking himself inside his facility.

This was in the Prep Xtra Edition on a blog following an article about the new basketball coach. You make it sound like it was an article itself or something. It was probably posted by you "Just Saying". Thanks for distorting, or at the very least, skewing the facts. Again.

The girls has had a new coach for less than a week and the mommies are already trying to kiss butt!! The "mommies" are angry because one of the girls knows the coach!! Oh well!! I love being on the outside and looking in it is so FUNNY how a group of women can destroy a program. Coach Lee was a
GOOD person maybe not a great coach but he didn`t deserve what those parents did to him.These girls are in HIGH SCHOOL let them start acting like it, cut the cord!! Let him coach and mommies stay out of it!! Don`t make me name names, I will i don`t have anything to lose!!!!
