: : : : Fullerton Coach was not a cool cat, all about his kid and always has been.

: : : Why would fountain valley be opening up? The guy has been there for two years and he needs to be gone? Just curious as to why ? Iíve been to games and he runs good stuff and he has a boat load of young talent. It just interesting because nobody talks about other programs whoís coaches have been there for light years and not winning but itís no talks of them being let go. Just a interesting post. Fountain valley wasnít even a after thought and now it seems as if it is. Lot of post about that guy. Heís building a good culture over there and the administration loves him. Does he mistreats players or parents ? Is he a bad person ?
: : I actually have heard the exact opposite, and the ppl I talk to are very close to the situation..as in administration level. He wasnt holmes staff and he is underachieving with a talented squad. The HB coach dont know much about though, just rumors there.
: So the nothing about the hb coach whoís been there for 6 years. But a guy whos there for two years is gonna get let go! So if youíre so close to the program what have you heard ? Just seems like that coach at fv is catching a lot of hate. Has he violating any rules and again I ask does he mistreat the players, parents or staff. Does he have any issues with administration. Just seems like a bold statement to make with solid evidence. Like Iíve said itís multiple oc coaches who vastly underachieve consistently but no changes. If Iím not mistaken heís the only African American coach in the sunset league .... with that being said it seems fishy that heís all of the sudden on the hot seat for a program that was in shambles for years. If they did let him go I personally think they would lose all of their players and incoming players. You may wanna get better sources besides bitter parents and alumni.
My feeling is he is getting heat for two reasons:
1. He went 9-19. The league is split so he was able to play in the lower half, but still finished 3rd.
2. He has AAU ties and was an assistant at Orange Lutheran. This board loves to pile on HS coaches with a background like that.
Neither of those scenarios are reason to fire a guy. If he is leading the kids and developing guys within the program, great. If he is bringing guys in from all over and still going 9-19, then get rid of him. AD Roger Holmes was a long time successful basketball coach. I am sure he will make the correct read on this situation.
