: I have been a high school coach for over 30 years. The quality of coaching now is really bad. One reason for this: NO ONE CARES! Admin does not care, if they have bad high school sports programs. The school board does not care, NO ONE CARES. There is no reason to hire good coaches when no one cares. They would care if parents complained to the admin and the school board. No one complains, so they have no incentive to improve. If you want better coaches, take it to the Admin and the school board, put pressure on them. They will feel the heat, and address the issue.
This is a general statement, and certainly not true everywhere, but one is is the truly elite players are ending up at private schools so they don't encounter this.
Especially on the girls side. Of the top 8th grade teams in our area, 90% went to private schools for drastically reduced tuition. They never even considered public schools.
So, complaining to the public school board is not going to happen as much with the average/good athletes.
I'm not saying you are wrong, just that it probably won't happen.
