Frank I understand and respect your onion however as a former athlete who played for coach Hoke, Mize and Bruce Football program and also a former college football player; this is NOT the best we can give these kids. They deserve better from a coaching and teaching they are receiving. You will learn more from a quality coach who will not only prepare you for football but they prepare you for LIFE. The bottom line is a coach is a teacher. Itís nothing personal against the coaching staff but they are in over their heads and the ship will continue to sink. We have allowed and accepted mediocrity in our school system, we need to hold teaches {coaches} accountable. When it comes to kids they deserve the best teachers.
WELL SAID

You are getting the best of the few that are willing to put their neck out there in this town... What veteran coach with any common sense would take on this program? At its height, this program was still full of arrogant head cases that carried forawrd none of the life lessons everyone thinks today's kids would receive... only the grudges.
Anyone that thinks they could do better themselves is ALREADY doing it themselves with their kid after every practice and game... None of the RFA greats would take the job because they know the authority they commanded in the past remains in the past.

I used to coach high school and was very successful. I coached Notre Dame but had some issues. I'd be will to coach RFA if you'd like. I really don't need any money but would like to help.

Calvin Griggs was one of the best and wanted the position but for some reason was overlooked.
