That is like saying Albert Puljos is better than Sid Bream at First Base. My 8 year old could have coached the tigers to 5 wins this year!

The board did the right thing asking Ward to step down, now they need to bring back Smith to fix the mess created over the past 3 years and to bring back pride and discipline to a program lacking it!

Add worship the sidelines that Coach Smith walked for almost 28 years instead of taking shots at him. Compare resumes

197 wins, 2 WPIAL AND STATE Championships

Career 25 - 47 record, 3 first round playoff losses and the total destruction of 1 of the most respected football programs in Western PA

So you finally admit smith walked out on the kids. Don't worry ward won't. Again congratulations to your induction at Slippery Rock. Keep up the good work! Just let the haters keep hating. That still won't bring smith back.
You are right about one thing ward didn't walk out, he was run out on a rail. Even in the end his supporters (all 2 or 3 of them), bailed on him. Welcome back Coach Smith.
so wrong

I spoke to several MASD BOD members at a local restaurant after their meeting, and they asked WARD to stay... unanamously!! HE tenderd his resignation to handle a personal issue and then move on to the college ranks. Not walking out on his kids, but leaving withhis head up and proud of something SMith could never do... take a team this devoid of talent and respect, and force his will on them to make thme better men, not thugs. And.. as you keep glossing over.. he won some games along the way. We want our kids to be better men... not better football playing thugs. That is what you will get now... glad my son graduated.. thank you for helping with his college plans Coach Ward!!!

You really need to stop talking out of your ass because your breath stinks! If ward had the votes he would still be here continuing his path of destruction that started the day he was hired.

Yes, Coach Ward had our full support. Even Halaz was willing to keep him. With their personal issue aside, Ward was what we wanted for this district. He chose to move on, and afer speaking at length, we finally accepted his resignation. Smith was not our first or even 2nd choice for the job. Our first 2 candidates turned us down, Coach Nola and Coach LaDonne.

Ward had the support of the Majority of the populace of McKeesport. Only 3 or 4 whiners complained because their kid got kicked off the team. Of course your kids want to come back now, because the coach thatr kicked them off the team is gone. It is the only way they could. It will be funny when there are gang fights at the games again. Ward stepped down to handle a personal situation, and focus his extra time on his family life. HE is still the Dean of Discipline! I give him permission to get physical with these thugs if necessary!

You mean to tell me he didn't even have the decency to show up at the football banquet. What little respect I had for the guy is gone if that is truly the case!

Who said they could have a banquet? These fools do not deserve anything. The money spent on a banquet should have been put towards the bail fund for Smith's team this summer. This upcoming SR class is the most embarassing one in the HIstory of our great district. They are an embarassment even to the name of PittBulls! Ward built this program from the ground up. The past 2 SR classes of Smith's boys are just embarassing. I would not have attended a banquet in the port either. How many shootings were there?

For the boys that were Seniors this year who have only had ward as a high school football coach this was very disrespectful. By the way if he is such a great Dean of Discipline, this up coming Senior class that is so embarrassing (your words not mine) never had Coach Smith so they are a result of Ward and his influence.

When this team does well and some of the kids get scholarships this same numb nuts will come on here under some other alias claiming that it was all Wards doing! He is gone, the kids have a real coach, game set match!
