    I think its a shame that other than this message board HSOT.com has made absolutely NO mention of it. Nick was tweeted by me personally about 5 minutes after the Wilson Times broke the story on their Facebook page. I guess because we're not Wake County there's no interest, but you'd think an area school with a coach that had coached 3 years in a row in the Eastern finals and had over 200 career wins would get a little love. If you aint Raleigh you dont matter. I guess HSOT is about like hunting. If it aint in season no need to worry with it.

    Trust me when I say there ain't nobody more Hunt Warrior than Stevie Hinnant.

    Was told he wanted a new "challenge" at this point in his career. NN certainly is that. One excellent year followed by 2 or 3 lousy ones. Can't keep their athletes home. Too many show up at rival schools without moving. Also, outgoing coach would not allow fball players to play other sports, i.e. track or bball. Both these programs fell off the earth. Bball was 1-26 last year. Already 6-7 (I think) this season with fball players on the roster. This was MAJOR in the fball coach's departure.

    I would question the playcalling even if the sainted Joe Gibbs was the Hunt coach. Fact is, Stevie deserves the opportunity. He started as a freshman in the schools 3rd or 4th year, and I think has been there and involved in our athletic program as either a player, staff of some sort during his college years, and coach/teacher after college. He knows what the Hunt crowd is like when things aint going good and knows it dont take long for us to get rowdy if they aint. I'm not sure many folks that would be given the opportunity could handle us. Stevie Hinnant head coach and Richie Pridgen OC would please me.

    Its pretty much a given considering the good ol boy system. Hinnant is good. But hes not the best for the job.

    Probably more to the story than most people will ever know. So who takes the reigns now at Hunt?

    move makes NO SENSE at all...has to be more than a "fresh start"? Randy has been a complete success at Hunt. Prob. tired of politics-Maybe he scored a large signing bonus...lol

    Thanks Elem-Teach. Guess I'll keep that in mind for future reference. Wish Randy luck at Northern Nash. Won't seem right without him on the Hunt sidelines.

    None I am aware of. The only difference between counties would be the annual county supplement and the coaches stipend. Neither of which would make a huge difference in retirement pay. Last time I checked, the supplement was the same and unless Nash County pays a large stipend for head football coaches, I would not imagine that would be much different. Having taught 32 years, he has reached the max for state pay so that would stay the same.
    State retirement is based on your last three years salary before retirement, but I don't see where is salary would increase unless he got a LARGE bonus for some reason.

    Maybe Nash Co. offered some incentives for a state championship. LOL!

    I caught part of a conversation where it was implied by going to Nash County and working a few years Rapers retirement would be a little better. Any scenario where this is true, Teach?

    New superintendent. Does not believe in disciplining students. Has overrode almost every principal on discipline matters, especially the high school principals. He does not believe in suspensions, even students that have assaulted teachers have been allowed back into the class with just a slap on the wrist. Could write a book about things but not enough time.

    What's going on in WCPS system to make everyone want to leave?

  • Elem-Teach Dec 19, 2012

    He done what almost every employee of Wilson Co. Schools wants to do. Left while he could. He obviously wants to continue teaching and coaching, but with the state this county school system is in, I don't blame him.
