: : : : : : Any updates out of Foothill? Who has applied for this job? Who is the favorite? What is the timeline to complete the hiring process?
: : : : : :District says nothing about the job.
: : : : I am hearing from some TUSD people I know that there is possibly a Special Ed teaching position possibly available. That position does not seem like a good fit for a Head Coach, but who knows, It looks like they are going to need to find a walk on Coach. Most walk ons now a days are club guys. I can only think of a couple walk ones that have had a lot success in the county and that is Reynolds at VIlla Park and I think the old Foothill coach was a walk on.
: : : Yes, Van Cleave was a walk-on.
: : : Until administrators are allowed to create positions to hire on-campus coaches, you're going to see walk-ons. A school needs to be able to have the football coach and the basketball coach on-campus. Honestly, the more on-campus coaches the better it is for everyone- players, coaches, parents, administrators...
: : : Unfortunately, admins get enamored with a coach because he's got ties to Cali Rebels or Compton Magic or whatever. Then they think that coach with all the ties are going to bring in top-notch players and put the basketball team on the map. Name one OC club guy that has come in and turned a team into a contender.. I'll wait
: : : Administrators don't know the Compton Magic from Santa Claus.
: Agree that most admins are unfamiliar with the club basketball game and who is involved. I will go one further and say I believe most Admins are totally clueless nowadays as to who are good coaches in the high school arena. I also believe that many with club ties have tried to lead high school programs, but just because most havenít had a great deal of success in terms of W/Lís, I wouldnít rule out a club guy just for being a club guy. I think most really good club coaches wouldnít waste their time coaching high school because of their commitment and income that comes from a well run club program.
I to have to disagree with you on that one. Club /AAU coaches who are non-certificates educators need a gym and or gyms for their events, so the easiest way to get one is to take on a high school program. The interest isnít with the community but with their Club and their Events that they sponsor, along with the resources (monetary, merchandise) those events provide them and their Club/AAU program. Did the HS gig for way too long to hear it said otherwise as was stated in the above thread.
