What a joke

Lexington, KY

Newport hired Rod Snapp as their new boys basketball head coach. Snapp takes over for Aric Russell who was going to retire and then decided to take the Campbell County coaching job.

Snapp was the freshman coach at Dixie Heights for the last four years.

This is a big loss for Dixie as Snapp was likely the best coach in the program and the one that many wanted to be the next head coach for the Colonels. He brings an in-your-face type style of coaching to Newport but also does a great job of relating to his players. Also expect to see the Wildcats really pick up their defensive intensity under their new coach.

The cupboard is pretty bare at Newport despite coming off a season in which they won the 9th Region tournament. Snapp will have to work hard to build the program back up and continue to get players to come out for the basketball team.

***What they forgot to mention is that he has one agenda......his son! Horrible job hiring him. Other coaches I have talked to couldn't believe newport hired this guy.

HIs son is a 8th grader and that coach told me he is starting him varsity next year. And him and his assistants have to do a much better job of recruiting. have you seen the newest recruit. lol. if i was still in charge of reviewing the transfers I would have kicked snapp right in the nuts.

Why is newport playing in these soft tournaments? The team is not getting anything out of these cheap wins. Whenever they play a half decent team they get waxed....they need to take a look at this coach and his staff.....They have talent but they look so out of control, like their coach who is running and stomping his feet up and down the side line. He went as far to shove one of his players in the back as the player was unsure if he was in or out of the game. this coach is poison go to a game and watch the circus!!!

Because the coach can't compete with "basketball" teams.

Did you know Snapp was forced to resign from Holmes and Dixie? Pretty sad stories behind this guy and student relations/situations. Newport had to know about both of these situations. And there are many many quality coaches that want the varsity boys basketball position.
Someone come forward with the details!!!!

I guess that coach should not have run kids off, looks like they are needing players now. Players quitting and others are ineligible. Even less and less fans in the stands. I wonder if the administration see's that this has gone to far with this coaching staff???

Using 'or' instead of 'our' once I could write off as a typo. Using it twice makes me think you've got no business calling anyone else a loser.
