Not yet. I heard it will be at the board meeting in May. My son said a lot of the football players met with the principals at East and told them they want Coach Baker to be their new head coach.

i guess if the kids want a coach that will lead the team to 0and 10 then okay,but if we are to build a winning program please lets hope the board of education will pick a coach that is ready to coach at the triple A level and that isnt mr.baker he is a good guy but not a high school coach,maybe if we were in class A but other wise i will pray this isnt the choice or it will be business as usual continued losing seasons!

I don't feel anybody on this message board is qualified to say who is ready to coach at the triple A level. But my son played two years for Coach Baker at Eastern Greenbrier and everybody liked him. The players liked his offense and the way he coached. My son has three more years of high school football left and I'd be very happy if Coach Baker was the East head coach.

I agree with Football Parent, who, on this message board has the right to say who is qualified for the football program at East. We have had so called "qualified" coaches and that has gotten us no where. They look everywhere in the country for a coach and we have one in our own back yard that has the interest of our children at heart. Most coaches that come to East have no intention on staying longer than 4 years, our program needs someone that will be there longer to build our program back up. I VOTE BAKER!!!

if the board of education follows the guidelnes set forth by the state coach baker wont get the job for the most part it is based on tenure in the school system in west virginia and depending on who bid on the job coach baker will probably not be in the running.

Heart of gold it does not have to do with tenure. Teaching positions must go by tenure in county not by state. Those already hired by the board of education in the county must be given coaching positions over those who are not currently hired in county. The BoE fixes this by hiring new coaches while at the same time giving them some sort of job in the county. Case in point, Jim Justice. Others from the county applied when he did, so the BoE hired him as a substitute teacher at the same time he was given the coaching posisiton. By the rules Coach Baker would have the upper hand, and if the coach comes from out of county and is hired in a full time position by the BoE watch for the fur to fly since several teachers lost their jobs this year because of decreases in enrollement.

thanks for the info!but remember when it comes to hiring this county is not fair it is all in who you know,just ask and by the way mr.aaron baker is in the know because he has been promoted in this county over other teachers who have more tenure again i like baker and thanks fr the info but this county is sneaky when it comes to these type of things.

With all the complaining on this forum with players and coaches in other sports, I find it genuinely refreshing the football players are supporting Coach Baker for head football coach.

The kids that like the coach are the ones that know they are going to play. Until things change no coach will do go at East. A lot of good kids won't go out because they know they will not get to play or play very little. Parents need to stay out of it and let the coach do there job.

Baker is a great guy, but he only plays double A middle school teams. He doesn't even play the hard middle school teams how is he gonna play the best triple A high school teams in the state? Just think about it before saying he's gonna do such good just because he's a good guy that's easy to get along with.

Yeah, the kids love him. The KIDS loved Grogg. Did he stay as a coach? No, because all you parents want to do is complain cause your kid got yelled or cussed at. That's football ppl. If you wanna baby your kid, and never let them be in the real world then put them in golf or something. They need a coach who has experiance with big school who are good. Middle school tricks don't work in high school!!! just like high school tricks don't work in college.

Well I was one of the many young men that went to that meeting expressing our feelings about the coaching job being given to Baker and when I looked around that office there were guys that last year on Friday nights didn't get to touch the playing field so don't give me the kids that play like Baker, the kids that like Baker are the ones that are up at the weight room till 5:30 every day after school and know how much he has done for them. Also none in 09, your little thing about those who know they are going to play like the coach is totally a bust, Del Wallace, Todd Richmond, Nate Lilly, Brandon Dolan, Clay Ayers, Garret Hinkle, Michael Parker, Drew Dowdy, Travis Butts, Sam White, Ben McMillion, Ethan Mounts, etc. all strongly disagreed with the coach, yet they all knew they were going to play on Friday nioghts because they were the ones who were going to give the extra push, pull, or stride to help the man beside him period.

East need someone with experience in high school and college football. Someone that can take our young men to another level, both phyically and mentally. We need a coach that respects the players and the players respect the coach. We havn't had that since the Criddle era. Our young men need to be faster and stronger and we need a coach that has the ability to teach that and mix up the plays, not just have two plays and try to make it look different. We need a coach that can put the interest back in FOOTBALL. GOOD LUCK
