Sad but it had to happen. There was no commitment there. I believe position needs to be really looked at. No more going with the flow! This person needs to get involved. Its time to start a fire and keep it burning. Nick would have been good, he just forgot where he came from. parents have started youth programs to help but can never get our school to support. it has to start somewhere. so whoever takes this position better be committed!!!!

Who were the 2 board members that voted against Nick's demotion or whatever you want to call it? Does anyone know? I can guess that Eric was one of them

it probably was Eric. I hope he stays on board because i think his intentions are to become a coach in the district and nooo way can he do that. ask any of the kids that have played sports with him. just plain stinks!!!!

Um, does he have a 4yr degree, because isn't that what's being demanded of the recently fired coach mendez and gonzales?

Yes what Natalia needs is coaches with a degree who know what they are doing! Firing Nick was a mistake in my opinion.

There is no comparison between the records of the fired coaches and Nick's record! Its unfortunate that Jr High sports dont go to playoffs because both of these coaches would have gone. When is the last time any of the teams Nick coached went to the playoffs?

He wasn't fired, just demoted from being the NISD Athletic Director and Head FB coach.

what happened is nick removed the wrong person from coaching and she did what she always does. Had her connections on the board remove him. And its Jr High if they are a talented team they will make playoffs when they are in HS. Nick doesnt coach every sport to compare records. and good coaching is not the only factor in great teams its athletic ability and family support. A lot of things Natalia students lack in. At least Nick went to Natalia played college sports and came back to help the school out.

YOUR RIGHT AT LEAST HE WAS ONE OF THE FEW THAT DID SOMETHING AS FOR ERIC HE CANT EVEN GET ONE DEGREE

What does Eric having or not having a degree have anything to do with Nick's demotion or for that matter, being on the board? And as for Tiffany...wow, wake up, its the great U S of A, she has every right, as much as the next person to be on the board, having children in the school isn't a qualifier! If you don't like it, then IF you live with our school district, run for the board. I understand that you are upset over this, but think before you type such blank comments, please. Nobody is perfect. Not u, me, ERic, Tiffany, Nick, or Marcum.

Yes is was good for nick to come back but he got set in his ways. when u hurt the kids that play for u it doesnt get u anywhere. he told a kid he would never start for him because he was from 4th st. he has to remember that he had help with his journey. he forgot that. this time off from AD may help him get better. talent is there, just need to put it all together.

What does have a degree have to do with anything? Look at past board members!! Did Rey Alvarado, Mr. Herrera, Leo Garcia, Leslie Teague, Jesse fields . I could go on and on. One thing I can say is this board seems to be trying to put friendships aside and making decisions. We all know that Tiffany and Eric and Louis were friends with Booth. Yet what ever happened happened. Point being they seem to be trying. At least most of them at least pay taxes unlike a lot of Natalia citizens. How many people from Natalia have degrees. How many of you go to board meetings to see the time and effort they put into the district. Before you bash like Natalias great at, go up and see for your self. Don't base one decision here pr there on what they are trying to achieve. I have been to a few meetings and for the most part, this board works together. just watch out for the snake kempf. We all know how he hit on Tiffany during the pledge. He is a sick man

Well said degree. U Natalia people are why that school doesn't succeed. U sit back and talk shit instead of backing the board and the district. Unless u ever served in a public office, I would shut up. Its a thinkless job that pays 0

Well i dont think anyone said anything about needing a degree to be on the board.However if Eric Smith wants to critcize like I have personally heard him or act like a sideline coach then get a degree and apply for the job. Also who is to say im not a tax payer or present at board meetings? As far as how many natalia residents have a degree I can say I DO!

I happen to be related to Tiffany and she is a very smart and well minded lady. Degree or no degree. As far as Eric, he is working in Pleasanton and doesn't attend very many games any more. He has done a lot for the school though. As far as kempf, he is a sick minded perverted individual. His wife needs to find out. I believe this board as a hole is working together for the betterment of the community
stop

The best thing this town could do is support the school as a whole!!! Lets end this topic. Does no good to bash people!!!!! Any elected office is a Thinkless Job. Give credit where credit due. Take care. Go Mustangs. Lets move forward for the better of the KIDS
