When does the program become the new coaches?

Recommended Posts

So, in a small school (no spring football), how long does it take for a football program to be considered the new head coach's? For example, if you come in the previous April , does it take a full year before the new head coach gets the Credit/blame?

LOL! For some folks around here, you get credit, or more likely blame, as soon as you are announced.

Me personally, you should see improvement after the first season.

Y'all are right. Depends on your starting point though. I can see a coach needing a 2 season "buffer" if the situation is pretty bad...

I would say going into 3rd season...your Freshmen will be juniors and you should know what you have and whom you have molded to be an asset....

It will be a rare community that gives a coach 3 years though. Most demand results NOW! 😂

Might depend on Coach’s, and the teams, past record, and his pay.  Westerberg, at Barbers Hill was getting some bad post on here right off the bat.  Now, not so much.  Fans of a bad program will be more tolerant.  You get named HC at WOS or Carthage, you better come out of the gate kicking booty.  There’s a lot of variables.

A coach owns it in the first year.  I usually give first the year a pass.  Got to have time to implement the program.  Second year should show marked improvement.  The third year should be challenging for a District title.  But, with that being said, it does take some elite coaches  more than three years to have their team in a position to challenge for a State Title.

Your response might be because you follow a tradition rich school.  Take a team like Huntington.  Heck, a Coach that could just get a winning record for several years, could be Mayor (King) of that town.  😂😂😂

The 2nd season. When those seniors from 3 years of old coaching have graduated.

I tend to agree with this in some points.  Our SR class this year had no other head coach’s. But they have bought in and we look a lot different then we did last year.  Still a ways to go.  No if there was a lot of negativity and no buy in from the SR class then yea it wouldn’t happen till they are gone.

In the 1st year, senior leadership is almost as much a factor as the coaching change itself. Many people discount how much effect seniors have on lower classes in practice and attitude. You are right that seniors buying into the system can go a long way for the new program.

No doubt about it.  Unfortunately we have been part of it twice. One of my boys is a Sr this year. His sophomore year was a whole new staff and first year. Sr leadership was bad and it showed. Fast forward to now. He is a Sr with new staff again and his SR class leadership has paved the way.  It’s been total night and day.

Congrats on raising a young man who can accept change at a young age, and show leadership as an upper classmen.

I think you have to give a coach a full off season. Conditioning, strength, and if he can get the kids to come to voluntary summer workouts. Once you can get some improvements then more will follow and your program will grow.

    • App St. is 9-1 and ranked #22 in nation.
    • Winning state u get a plaque not a gold ball and the rings up to recent where up to players to buy if they wanted one now the boosters are allowed to buy them for players  
    • Sorry in District 👍 lost to Tyler Lee by 7,  then to Carthage and Longview 1st three games of the year by good margins 
    • It was a chippy game from the start. Helmet to helmet hits all that.  The Bronws had a sizable lead..  No way were the Steelers going to come back & win that game with seconds left.  They, the steelers should have been handing the ball off to run out the clock.  The browns should have taken their starters out of the game.  The steelers QB drops back Myles Garrett sacks him.  While they were on the ground the qb kicks him in the boys and tries to take barrettes helmet off.  He started.it .  That was bush league on the QBs part. All the steelers linemen are pushing Garrett back and the qb is still running up to Garrett.  That QB is stupid and bush league.  He should be suspended for 3 games as well.   That QB played a sorry game and then showed the world what a knuckle head he is.  Clown.
