Wow. Resigns after coaching zero games. Dist 95 sports politics must have spooked him. Thank goodness for the baseball team. At least they can win games and have a coach that has some sack. Good job coach Tarr. Dont take any crap form these scum.

I will agree with you that the coach could have atleast tried to stick it out 1 year. I think he owes that to the kids on his team. But, when you have "mommies" calling daily and trying to get their boy a starting place on the team, that would get old real quick. I have never seen such parental pushing as with the boys mommies coming in as freshman. I feel sorry for their kids, as I am sure they are totally ashamed of them. But, they are only hurting their own!

First off its not Dist 95 it is Paris Cooperative High School. They have a director by the name of Dave Meister and they have their own board made up of Dist 95 and Dist 4 members. And the Coach resigned because of a coaching opportunity at a college. He was harassed by email and texting everyday by 2 parents and they were not freshment parents but one soon to be jr dad and his side kick a sr's dad. The same two who tried to host a "healing" party for the team. But, they didn't invite the whole team just certain kids. Then they tried to say the coach was hosting it when he knew nothing about the so called party. So hopefully Coach Nugent will stand up to these 2 baboons(sp).

Parents need to stay the hell out of the way and let a coach do their job. That has turned alot of kids away from sports that were really good. Shame on parents that try to re-live their childhood, or bully, or buy their kid into a spot. For a coach, none of them want to be told how to do their job unless they are not a real coach to start with. If a coach sells their soul to BS, get rid of them. It is up to the schools to hire and monitor a qualified person for the job and then to assure them they have full control to do the job sucessfully. Parents, school board members, people with $, should never interrupt or manipulate a coach that is doing his job and playing the kids that deserve their spot and have earned it reguardless of their name, etc.

Dist 4 has representation in name only but that is not the topic here. The girls varsity coach is a joke who has already sold his soul to the "BS". Unless your parent is a full time lobbyist or you played at Mayo you haven't got a chance no matter how hard you train. And, no, I don't have a kid in the program. I have friends with kids in the program. Paris will never change. Healing party my @ss. Another example of the cliquish nature of the people that inhabit Paris.

What do you mean representation in name only? Dist. 4 has the same voting has Dist. 95. And I totally disagree with the Mayo comment. the two in charge of the 'party' had kids from each school. I do agree with you on the clique. If you are not in the clique then basically you are ignored or treated like crap.

Coach Nugent may have made a big mistake. He will be teaching in Chrisman and coaching in Paris. I think he should have stayed in Chrisman a few more years and let Paris hire and fire a couple more guys over the next few years and then step in. This way he may last in Paris long enough to coach his boys who are very young. If they don't like you in Paris (not just the school system) then your outta there. Where you gonna go then coach? Good Luck but you have a rough road ahead of you.

Well let the back stabbing begin! summer basketball is now in full swing and so is the drama. There are 2 sets of parents who sit together and talk about all of the other parents and their kids and then when they are not together talk about each other. Get a clue and realize they are not your true friends. I guess their little "healing party" did not work. listening to them moan and gripe about how their kid is not going to get to go to Duke or North Carolina is hysterical. Are you for real? These are top programs in the United States and you think your sons can get in? On the topic of Coach Nugent I think he will be here for awhile. he already knows about the parents and took the job anyway! that says a great deal about him. For all of you naysayers(sp) it is time to start supporting the team and let the hate go. We as a community need to support our youth in anything and everything that they do.

Tiger fan, you must think coach nugent is going to take care of your boy. HA! Chrisman is pleased to be rid of him. He is now our problem, on top of nasty parents who need to get a life! Just let the boys attempt to play ball and leave it at that.

I do not have a son playing on this team. And yes I heard the town of Chrisman was glad to see him go. What I am saying is why can't we support the kids. Why do these moron parents make it about themselves? Come sit at a game and watch these parents in action. If Player A plays 1:00 min more than player B then player A's parents are all about bad mouthing player B. I think each of these parents needs to read the poem "everything i need to know, I learned in kindergarten! If the parents can not get along how do we expect the kids to get along in order to play? and i am not saying everyone has to be best buddies, but the hate has got to go! if these parents were still in high school it would considered bullying.

Dear Basketball Fan,
Are you sure we are talking about the same coach? I haven't seen good coaching from him yet. He doesn't have what it takes for basketball in Paris. He just needs to move on, like the other one did, quickly!

Dear Sports Fan,
I think you are the one who had a son that played for Coach Nugent. Why so bitter? And if you are glad he left Chrisman why are you still bemoaning the fact that he is so terrible!

The "HATERS" will never allow that to happen. He might cut someone or make one of their boys play on a team they feel is beneath them and worst of all he might talk Nugent into playing Freshman on the Varsity and one of their boys would be bumped down to JV.

Wondered how long it would take Coach Elston's name to pop up in this conversation. Believe me that would be a sure fire way to start a war in Paris. And for one of the kids who was cut last year answer me this-if you are a sophmore and you win the defensive player award on the jv then how do you go out your jr year and get cut? and then have your parents be told it was because you did not have the experience to play varsity! Huh!! why not jv for another year to get some experience? but 2 freshment who went to every summer event are given spots on varsity? now come on people look at the overall picture here!!!!!!!!!

Wasn't Shawn Nugent the one who sued or threatened to sue District 95 when he was hurt playing basketball on his time. I think he was playing ball on a Sunday mens league when all of this went down. Now we are going to hire him and pay him a wage after I am sure he cost us money? Wow, that seems a little unreal.
