That’s what I read… didn’t know about his family situation and him having talented daughters. That’s great he’s a family man first and putting his daughter’s future ahead of his own ambitions. 
 

but I was more asking what position he will hold at BH… on what’s he going to do.

Not 100% sure.  I've heard but can't confirm.. and don't want to say something that I don't know for sure.

Not confirmed but from my understanding, Liberty ISD is set to hire, Kedrick Harrison, who graduated from Coldspring, in 2012.  I also don't know if this hire comes with the AD tag, or HFC?  Possibly somebody more in the know could confirm.

Do we have a run-down of Coach Harrison's accomplishments?

I wish him all the luck in the world, but Liberty missed a big opportunity with this hire. There was another candidate who could've really worked to take that program in the right direction. I guess the decision makers weren't interested in taking that route. Either way, Congrats Coach Harrision.

Well, I was rather confident this was a done deal, but I have since heard that there is a short-list of 3 candidates and nobody appears to be a lock, just yet.  Next board meeting is tomorrow April 16.

Just curious, did Randy Rowe apply for this job?

How do you know that Harrison is not a big opportunity? I don't really know him, but maybe just maybe he is what Liberty needs. I was just wondering what you know about Harrison that doesn't make him a big opportunity.

I don't know who the other coach was, but this guy has no head coaching experience that I can find, and minimal high school experience.  after graduating from college he spent a year each in defensive coaching positions on bad college teams before moving to high school.  Not sure what he did from 2019-2022. He spent last year at cleveland, who was terrible.  He may be great, and I don't care one way or another, but if Liberty passed up a coach with a history of success for a virtual unknown with no previous success at the high school or college level I'd be pretty frustrated if I was a panther fan.

Do you have anything that you'd like to tell us that you think makes him a big opportunity?!

I don't know anything about Harrison other than the fact that his coaching history is limited, at best. Social media seems to indicate he has been given the Athletic Director and Head Coach title, which is even more baffling for a guy who has not one iota of experience in either role. Especially when Karen Slack is right there in house. All I know is this: there was absolutely a candidate on their list, who they interviewed, who has 20+ years' experience as a SUCCESSFUL AD/HC in the SETX area. He would've been a slam dunk hire and gotten folks in Liberty excited about playing football again, especially with the group of young kids they have coming up through the ranks. Unfortunately, they decided to take a different route. Like I said, I am not throwing shade at Harrison, everybody has to get their first job somewhere. I just hope Liberty didn't pass a great opportunity for some reason other than thinking Harrison was the superior candidate.
