We need a good coach, and not the MS coach.

Here we go again! Whether it is elementary, middle school or high school sports, there is ALWAYS those "wanna be's" who probably weren't outstanding (or didn't participate at all) athletes?? who are now too old to play anything and feel they have "lost their opportunity" and since their lack of participation now qualifies them to KNOW MORE about coaching THAN ANYONE the school system could possibly hire to coach, it is a constant bitch, bellyache, gripe because their precious "little one" (who THEY have never taken the time to teach to dribble a basketball, throw a baseball nor any other activity that might help the CHILD) isn't a starter on the team!! And heaven forbid that that happen, because then the parent wouldn't have their "bragging rights" and "attention for themselves" at the games.

FOR YOUR CHILD'S SAKE and the RESPECT for the TEAM, parents GROW THE HECK UP, be an adult, encourage (and practice with) your child and LET THEM BE WHAT THEY CAN BE not what YOU want them to be!! All children are special but not all children are special ATHLETES and that is o.k.! Childen want to please their parents and that includes having a bad attitude about a lot of things BECAUSE THEY HEAR IT FROM YOU. Think about that (and what your child really wants to do) and point them in a positive direction rather than teaching them to bitch, bellyache and gripe about every circumstance or person that is not exactly what YOU want them to be. Ninety-five percent of the time, children can work out their problems if the PARENTS WOULD ONLY ENCOURAGE AND SHUT UP! Teach them to work WITH the coach and team and quit trying to force self-gratification for YOURSELF.

I really have to agree with this, however I do also believe that parents have the right to expect the school system to put "respectable coaches with good character" around our kids. If the at least have these qualities the parents need to leave the games to the coaches

They need to let the middle school coach have the team, she knows whats going on, she knows how to coach, she wants to win. We need to get on with it,she can do it, and she wants to.She will not leave us. go for it

If I were her after already being passed up for it by some one outside of our school system I would be half tempted to tell em to stick it. Of course if she is successful the administration will try to take all the credit for bring her aboard, however if she fails then they will say we told you she wasn't qualified. The problem is that I hear alot of the girls really don't wanna play for her b/c she pushes them too hard...lol

We need to get Aaron. Bash ham. Awesome coach, plays fair And is not ever associated with drama or favoritism. My kid played on his team and even though my kid road her fair share of the bench, she learned a lot and loves the game now. Bet every child he coaches would gladly move to. Bc us

Well here we go again Its been 6 or 7 different coaches since Pickett has been in charge these last 4 yrs. um.... I see a pattern. Now shes hired the SRO officer at the school. Every county around is laughing. Didn't Pickett have any other family members who wanted the job. Her 1st cousin is the boys coach. Another 1st cousin is her VP. And guess what next year it will be another coach. Get ready, You don't need a college degree.

Now this is typical Bledsoe, already started bashing and the season hasn't even started yet. The new head coach has served more than 5 years as an assistant coach in football which under TSSAA rules now allows him to be a head coach. Besides, because of the history of atletes parents, there is not exactly a long line of coaches begging to come to Bledsoe. Give him his shot.

How does being an assistant coach in football qualify him to be a head coach in basketball? That's just odd if you ask me. I could understand him being a football coach but not as how that could qualify him to be a basketball coach.

I don't know why, but according to TSSAA if a non-teachers serves as an assistant for 5 years, it allows them to be head coaches in any sport or any school

I have the utmost respect for Carlos. He will do a wonderful job. He is a really good person but he is also fair. So grateful that he has stayed as our SRO. He is very valuable to the entire system.

Leave the coaching to the coach! Let the players enjoy their middle school and high school years of playing ball. This is for all sports.
