I saw on tv the other night where Wilcher changed from baseball coach to girls softball. Truth known Wilcher tried to go to OCS but they didnt want him. He doesnt realize this is a stab in the back to a community that has supported his program for years. I also thought since Danny Walters stepped down as softball coach, the job had to be advertised and voted on by the school board. Wilcher shouldnt be able to just pick what he wants. If he wanted to leave Mangham, he should just leave. Gonna be different if all of us quit dipping deep into our pockets and giving to him to put into his......

it is true, he did take the softball job at Mangham. It has been rumored for several years that he had been trying to get a job at OCS. Don't get me wrong, he has done an outstanding job at Mangham with the baseball program and I believe he will do the same with the softball program as well. That program returns all but 1 player from this past season. Danny is a great guy but was too easy on those girls and I'm sure that is about to change. But with that said, if Scott wanted to leave he should have just left. Now, we need to really advertise the baseball opening and get a coach that will carry on the tradition that is in place. I'm afraid the new coach will be just given the job like a football coach was a few years back. I pray this doesn't happen again. After several years of making the state tourney and fresh off a state championship, I'm sure the baseball job will attract quite a few talented coaches. It needs to be advertised and not kept quite.

I realize a teacher, or coach, is able to change positions without advertising the fact. But, to hire someone in that persons former position, doesn't it have to be passed through the school board and advertised? Regardless of whether they accept someone "in house" or not, these positions are advertised to try to find the best, qualified person for the job. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

Supposed to Judy, but a few years ago they hired a coach that was not the most qualified for the football program. He only had a teaching certificate. Ask anyone from the south end of the parish that has followed the football program and they will verify this. It might have helped that his uncle was on the school board and pushed it really hard.

Thank you, Dragon 4 Life. I hate to know it's not done the proper way. The main thing in the sports program is a well qualified person and I pray they get someone capable of bringing the Dragons as far as they've gone in the past.

TAR? Are you ignorant on purpose or were you born that way? If I "knew it all", I wouldn't have been asking.

I personally would like to see Stephen Dupont consider applying for the MHS baseball coach position. Many of the talented male athletes that could or would go to RHS are derailed by enrolling at other schools-OCS, RA, DCS, etc-instead of going to RHS.
He's the only baseball coach in this parish that is on the same level as Wilcher. A far as the jerk Football coach that wasn't qualified-'all in a day of RPSB dirty politics, especially in the Stockton-era.'

We don't need Dupont in no shape or form. Don't know Tim Oneal so I can't comment on that one. As for as Wilcher goes, he won so no complaints here on him. The kids played hard for him and always seemed to be in the mix for a title. And for the new coach coming in I hope he is the most qualified person for the position and not someone that just has ties to the school. I've heard a former player from mangham is in the running for the job. Although I do believe in time this young man would do a good job I just don't think he is ready and needs a few more years before becoming a head coach at a contending school. Heck, he's only a few years out of high school himself. Just my opinion!

DuPont was a good coach. But a few years back he pulled the same thing stepping away from the baseball program he built and leaving a group of boys that had played for him since their 8th grade summer to coach softball. The group of boys didnt stand a chance playing for the clown they replace DuPont with. I heard from numerous parents that all the new coach was worried about was getting home to play his Xbox. Don't get me wrong DuPont was a great coach and a great man. He just let some young men down to coach his daughter in softball.
