    Is her going to be the AD as well?

    Great hire a tough hard nose coach is exactly what they need I was impressed how he ran Southampton offense last year and led them to the second round

    Should be interesting. First hire for the new AD. Let's see how it plays out.

    I am not sure I am on the new coach's bandwagon yet.

    I think his last year at Knightdale he had a team full of talent and he rode his horse to the 3rd round. But, before that the teams were unimpressive. Looking at his most recent stop at Burns, he did not do well as the coach. The three years prior to him arriving they were 13-2, 7-3, and 11-2. His first year they went 4-6 and the year he resigned they went 3-7. The year after he left they went 10-3.

    Interested to see how he does at WJ.

    If the Johnson boys and the old Kdale defense shows up, west will be great!

    If not, uh ohhhh

    Coach is good, but, the community needs to back him, give him time and he needs athletes to make that offense work

    I think the Jv team was good before the past two years and that's the same people that made the varsity team good. Pretty simple. On why he left, we can all talk about what we think that is but that's not the purpose of this post. I don't know the new coach but he has a lot of work to do. Lot of good players leaving. No one has ever or will respect west as a football program but that doesn't matter to us that went there. Just how it is. I went 0-10 on jv and that's because we had 0 talent and 0 numbers. Best of luck to the new coach.

    Why is everyone who does not have a positive opinion somehow an upset parent. Just makes you look stupid.

    Everyone in the county knows why he left.

    Based on your warped logic I guess your son was the QB or starting tailback.

    Maybe the Jv program was bad because they have little to no talent. Sounds like 4 is a disgruntled daddy. The seniors that are graduating this year set Jv win records. Looks to me like they were developed. Regardless of opinion, good luck to the new HC and the program.

    Now the question is how much of the old staff will he keep. No room in Clayton for those on the current staff to go to. JOEFOOTBALL4, based on what you said maybe he needs to find some good JV guys to help with that program. I agree that the JV program was terrible. Corinth did the same thing to their JV program. At some point the well runs dry if you don't have a farm system.

    Yep former Knightdale HC. Took them to the 3rd round in 2013. Coached the only team in the Greater Neuse to win the conference besides Garner in a long time that year as well. Has won 2 state championships in VA. It's going to take him a while to get West going again. Previous staff did not pay any attention to the JV program the last 2 years and they have not been coached well at all. Really is ashamed to neglect kids in your program like that but I guess if you know you are leaving why help them get better? Hopefully in about 2 years they can get it back on track.
