Well football folks-what do you think about the departure of Coach Setzer abruptly before the first day of practice? They spent thousands on a huge billboard on Hwy 107-"Return the Thunder". They upgraded "software" for the coaches. They lost no telling how much money on the gate the past two seasons. The Sylva-Herald,JCPS and Grissom and Cleaveland fawned over him like he was the second coming of Christ. But the kids are left in the mess,as it always goes here in Jackson County.

What kind of Coach leaves his players the night before practice starts?? An opportunity he couldn't pass up?

Now the paper says he left to 'double dip'. Collect retirement from NC and have a salary job in GA? Really thinking about his team, wasn't he? SELFISH...just like he has been from the very start.

he was a crappy coach at hayesville maybe one or two winning seasons, 1-22 record here nobody wanted to play for him the coach before him coach galloway was well respected by his players, he was railroaded by cleveland and grissom, karma is alive and well they should cancel the season before some player gets seriously hurt, they don't have enough players

Ole Jimmy will pick that up too. That way we can pay him for assistant principal (for which he does nothing except get paid) and head basketball and football coach! He'd make more than the superindendent and county manager combined! The worst part of all this is that if he would win as football coach like he has in basketball, I wouldn't even care. That is how hungry this county is for the return of our football program. We would be glad to pay that cocky little one-eyed wille whatever it would take if he would simply win and get the turn-out higher than 19 kids on the team.

Interesting conversation. However, need to correct one thing. He had great career at Hayesville. Won a couple of SMC Championships, played in the state semi-finals one year. Probably had the best record of any coach at Hayesville. Ever!!

Yes,he was the head coach at that time. His assistants,great athletes,and especially Dee Walsh deserve a lot of the credit too for those seasons. If he was such a tremendous coach he would not have run Smoky into the ground worse than it was before he got there. He was touted by Grissom and Cleaveland for his fantastic coaching abilities and the ever-wonderful mantle of "graduate of Sylva-Webster". These kids could care less about Sylva-Webster and the good old days. They go to Smoky,not S-W. Anyway,I digress. I am sure the state of things will be blamed on the kids and not him.

SM has lacked discipline for as long as I can remember. Players out drunk at midnight. The list goes on and on.
