Tough lost at home to Spring Valley. Kids played hard, but could not get the win. Since the
2004-05 basketball season Braldey teams are
(26-72). His teams have the second worst overall record of any other AAA school in Region 5. At one time Greenbrier East basketball was one of the most respected programs in the state. The Spartan gym used to be packed with great community support, now the basketball court is named after a gentleman named Justice
(should have been Al Morgan or Dick Gunnoe) and the teams are getting beat by Summers & Nicholas County. Bradley has had some teams that should have won the state many many times. We are just waiting for him to step down, maybe then our program will not be the laughing stock of West Virginia AAA basketball any longer.

Well at least the boys are playing AAA teams instead of single A schools to pad the win column! And yes the floor should be named after a Spartan Great, but money talks!

Wasn't it around the 2004-2005 season that East joined the MSAC? That tells the story right there. Before that we were playing AA teams and winning. Now we have 20 games in conference with AAA opponents. That is why our program has gone down hill. Not because of Bradley. It's not his fault all of the kids want to play two or three sports a year. If you want to be good, you have to specialize and play one sport year round.

The funny thing is that the girls coach was instrumental in getting East in the MSAC but he set up his schedule to start off with single and double A teams. When has East ever played Midland Trail. Then they beat them by 60 or whatever and we are supposed to be proud of that. They don't even have 300 people in the whole school. It's nothing to be proud of. It is shameful!

Hopefully the boys pogram can get back on track. Bradley is not a bad coach, It would nice to see new leadership with the program. Every year the team is out coached by Beckley He has had some good players and teams play for him while at East. Sure, Bradley may be the winningest coach at Greenbrier East, but how many has he lost?

Why is Jerry Bradley brought up in all these discussions, the man tries his hardest. I know the Bradley family well, and they've seen all the postings, bashing Jerry.. so can they end? His daughters were pretty upset by it, they think their father is the greatest man alive. And as for the coaching part, he always works twice as hard as Jim Justice, and he loves the boys greatly. I just wish we could all be more mature.

He does indeed work twice as hard as Justice.

I know Coach Bradley tries hard , but that dosen'y get the job done. East needs to get out of the MSAC as the travel is a pain in the butt. But Coach Money "Justice" wants to to stay in the conference for the prestige of the ladies B-ball team. When Coach Money hired his own radio man because Jeff Campbell gave his opinion a couple times and he buys everything. The county shouldn't need a school levy, take the money from all the facilities and put into academics. If a player goes to college for athletics,most small colleges can't match what East has. With all that said you have to have players and the kids are smart enough now not to beat their brains out for the rich kids with no skill to get the skill positions.Long live losing at East !!

Speaking of Coach Money...Has anyone paid attention to the post game interviews of the mount view game now playing on the local tv station? Both Coach and one player admit to playing and coaching all summer! That's illegal! It's about time we get back to teaching our kids to play by the rules set by the wvssac. Coaches can not coach their athletes outside of the season except for a small time frame in June. Look it up! Why are we teaching our kids it's ok to cheat if you have the money to buy your way out of the consequences?

I did watch that game on tv the other night and saw the post game interview. I did hear Coach Money talk about coaching all summer. That is illegal. I knew this was going on for sometime now. I work with a lady whose daughter was on the team last year. She would talk about Coach Money taking them to Vegas and other places to play during the summer. Very wrong but MONEY talks right. At least Bradley coaches by the rules. I would rather watch the boys play any day then to go watch him coach with his money.

Hola your comment has great respect for youth and concern for a young man with much talent. He will be fine in life. I do wonder about the actions of Mr. Coles. I witnessed myself the fact Mr. Coles told the parent "FU"(more than once) and had to be restrained by Coach Bradley. This occurred during the game while the team was on the floor. We must still understand this is a High School sponsored event and employees of the state or those representing the education system should be accountable for their actions. Parents should set back and enjoy the talents of their children but that does not always happen. So the old saying two wrongs do not make a right still stands today. Both men displayed unacceptable, embarrassing behavior that reflected poorly on Greenbrier East. I agree leave the child out of the equation but what to do with adults that show no respect for character and leadership in a public environment? Teaching, parenting, mentoring youth is not a part job and one should not be granted immunity based on their laurels of the past. We should define ourselves daily...

Mr. Coles has done nothing but cause total chaos while trying to be an assistant coach. His behavior was totally unacceptable as a paid board employee. Jerry Bradley needs to try and control him or the board needs to step in. He has made a mess out of the program-it wasn't great before but now it is down right trashy and an embarrassment on the East fans and citizens. Bimbo needs to go get his education and stay out of the lives of the kids!He is NOT A GOOD ROLE MODEL!

I don't have children in the school system. I say get rid of COLES, and I agree why are we paying him to be an assistant coach. If a child does something wrong they are punished, so it shouldn't be any different for COLES. Let him sit the bench!!!!

Just to let everyone know, Bimbo is not a paid coach he is a volunteer. And I know his actions may have been questionable to Walkers outburst, where Walker was belittling other players on the team.. saying that "His son had nothing to work with and had to do it all on his own." so, Coles was simply sticking up for the others on the team.

Are volunteers allowed on the bench and to "coach". Apparently his press conference announcement on being the assistant is in correct. Coaches should be approved!!!Any "volunteer" that is representing the school should be approved by the board-he is approved by the board to volunteer? There are rules in place and regulations to follow even for COLES!

Yea your right! chapter 5 paragraph 17 of the school code of ethics states "only a volunteer can use vulgar profanity in a game, but only if it is directed towards a parent and only if he or she is taking up for their team. All state paid employees doing the same will be penalized and disciplinary action will be taken….. sorry but your comment was so biased I just had to even the field. paid or not has no meaning to what happened. Both guys were wrong. Admit, move on and accept the fact we all make mistakes….
