It was his first year.  All I will say is that it didn't work out well. Not sure where he ended up going.

It was Billy Bryant, if I'm correct.

Nothing really happening.  It would seem so from the outside.  1st coach (Wofford)  chose to retire entirely on his on last July (later decided to come back and coach in Brookeland).  He was replaced by Coach Bryant in late July.  We welcome Coach Bunner and look to get back to the baseball tradition we had in Warren.

Any ideas on who might be a fit or at least in the running for WOS

According to an article in the Enterprise, Cornel Thompson didn't give any timeline on when a hire will be made.  He didn't indicate who the candidates, if he has any in mind are.

The thing I think could lure someone like Westbrook at Jasper or Jeff Bennett at Kirbyville is that the administrative situation at both schools is a circus right now and the political situation is dynamic. 

Both coaches would be great for WO-S if Cornel can work his magic and get them over there.

Don't get me wrong.  IF Coach Thompson could lure either Coach Westbrook or Coach Bennett to WO-S, I'd be good with that.

However based upon information I have gotten from Jasper and Kirbyville, both coaches are currently happy enough with their situations, as well as both schools being happy enough with their coaches.  So it appears that they will be staying put (no guarantee, of course) for the near future.

Of course, I'd not have a problem if Ryan Pickering would be promoted to the top spot, either.

Kyle Green might be an option.  

Well, he is currently employed by Lamar University.

    • So Little Racism In America, The Left Has To Manufacture It!
      When that subject was posted on this forum, the posters on here condemned that act. I guess you just read what you want to read. In fact, it sounds like your post was just a diatribe of self-reflection.
    • So Little Racism In America, The Left Has To Manufacture It!
      People around here & elsewhere see and hear what they want to.  If a presidential candidate they oppose says deplorable they latch onto it.  If the candidate of their choice mocks a physically challenged and disabled journalist they totally ignore it.   It is the same with terms like racism.
    • East Chambers vs Hempstead
      EC 30+ Hempstead remains true to its past and scores 55  plus or minus 3.  
    • Nederland Bond
      I'll respond to the young Mr Mosley in due time.  But I'll use his post to bring up a few interesting points for discussion and possible enlightenment:  It is my understanding, not verified yet, that there is talk of people in Austin who are questioning why the NISD board let this huge bond (tax increase) of 156,000,000 MILLION DOLLARS move forward to the voters.  Plus -- it was also stated, according to many in the "government-know" in Austin, the repayment cannot be sustained in the tax base.  Also, the President of the board, Suzanne Isom, stated this in a "Meet The Candidate" article: “I’m proud of the kids and how they’ve scored on tests,” she said. “Their grades and knowledge have increased. We have a very good superintendent who pushes teachers. I’m proud of the school district as a whole.”  Very interesting statements in bold letters!  And, Mr Jerry Albanese, I know him.  A very good man.  But he's been awful quite on the bond issue.  I think I know why.  But that'll be discussed later.  But, I think a lot of people at this point do not understand the WHOLE implications to the community of a 156,000,000 MILLION DOLLAR bond (tax increase) in a town of around 17,000 people!  But, that's why we have civil discussions to enlighten the folks in the community.  So, based on what Suzanne Isom stated,  educationally speaking -- is this massive tax increase really necessary?
