Coach Clark has coached my kids he will be a true asset to the program, and I promise you there won't be one kid that leaves after meeting him he has a real passion for football and success. We will be said to let him go from Buffalo, but you will be getting a great coach, leader, and better person.

Are you really that nave to think that a coach will move to Utica from Buffalo to take a job that pays $2700 with a mountain of issues to deal with, has no ties or history with the odd Utica community, no JV program in the school, barely 20 kids on the varsity roster every year, and many of the best players are leaving the school including the younger talent?

Better get to rehab sooner rather than later.

I just seen ND beat up NH in basketball. Shocked to see coach abraham at the game. In the nd crowd talking to everyone his usual ND football sweat shirt on cheering on the basketball team. I must say I'm quite impressed. Very classy guy. What a bunch of a-holes at ND to get rid of this guy. Kudos to you mr abraham. Your a big man !

That isn't accurate, there will be at least 5 of the younger talent leaving either at mid terms or end of school year. Unlike the ND administration, these families don't make rash emotional decisions and immediately pull their kid. But apparently another younger athlete who also plays baseball is now leaving.

I agree. Warmack and Bratham have already had SEC and ACC schools scouting them for football and SU among others are checking them out in Basketball. If anyone questions Flynts ability to coach just look at Bratham. Marty was the kids coach for years in several sports

Marty Flynt couldn't coach the 1927 Yankees or the 85 bears to a winning season. Lol
Both Warmack and brabham are excellent hs players but if u look at any of the hs recruiting websites, neither one of them are ranked in nys let alone the country. IMO, both are 1AA kids at best in football and d-2-d3 kids in basketball.

Unfortunately yes, there is more to this. And yes people do care. Its not just about Abraham, who was forced out for no good reason. This is about families like the Gilroy's who used the principal to get rid of a valuable asset of the school. Whether you like Abraham or not, he was a valuable asset to the school. Principal Anna Mae is not an asset and could easily be removed, replaced and upgraded. Abraham cannot be upgraded, it will be a step back with whoever they can find to take the job. Have you noticed they haven't found a replacement? Everyone remotely worthy has been turning them down.

Now, who else is at risk? Give JP a bad grade, suddenly a teacher needs to be nervous about their job. JP was ineligible pretty much all the time with bad grades in the past, since Abraham was brought down, he is passing everything. He formally got detentions weekly, now you never see him getting detentions. Vin Gilroy couldn't exert enough influence to force Coach Durr to start JP in basketball, so JP quit and went to daddy coached CYO. You don't think the baseball coaches are crapping their pants worrying about having to start JP on varsity?

ND will not be the same after this. Of course the school will go on, but some of the quality teachers and coaches everyone enjoyed for so long are actively looking elsewhere for employment. That effects everyone.

Leave it alone

I have coached both of these kids and also consider them family. They will both be staying at ND and there little brothers will also be jugglers.
For the people who keep posting about all these kids leaving do you really think ND cares if the door hits you on the way out or not? If Lebron James and Carmello Anthony left the school it would not shut the school down or hurt there enrollment... You know bodies should take your kids now and not wait. At least then we wouldn't have to hear you crying on a public forum trying to steer things up... Really your kids don't matter that much and are far from elite!
