Was Pendleton an asst coach at west?
Yes just last yr.
I don’t have a dog in the fight but unless triplet agrees to commit to help for 2-3 years it seems kind of risky to hand over your head coaching job to someone with 1 year of coaching experience. Did he call the D or call plays last year? What were his coaching responsibilities last year?

I thought this as well when I first heard about this but was informed by someone close to him with a lot of experience in coaching that this isn’t your average young guy. I was told he is wise well beyond his ears and knows more football than anyone this coach has ever met. I was also told his biggest quality is a motivator and role model to the people he comes in contact with. This coach said Pendleton is very much a great communicator and would have no issue handling a program and would flourish. I trust in the guy giving me this information so I think if he thinks this then it’s a no brainer.

Interesting read here on Pendleton’s football background and mentality. Found this on internet while doing some research on him. Thought you guys would like this.

I have heard from an inside source they are only looking for someone for the next 5 years. Word is Urban Meyer is taking the job in 2023 :lol:

Good article on Pendleton. Definitely shows he has the ability to fight through adversity. I'd say Ironton would be wise to give him a shot. No harm in trying. May turn out to be great hire.

Options; an experienced hc with not a great resume or an inexperienced assistant coach with social media behind him???
Is this how far the Fighting Tiger job has fallen?
I think we need a new search committee, oh wait it's almost May.. geeez

I'm over this 6 month debacle, I will officially accepted the the job as Ironton head football coach. With that in mind I am bringing in with me an offence where you may see three receivers in at one time. We are also dropping wheelersburg from the opening week to week 10 so we have more time to prepare for week 11 and the rematch. It is an honor to have been considered the 1000th candidate with how long it took them to reach out to me with the offer.

It's still the boards choice old timer. Look where their first two choices have gotten them.

The Board does not have to wait on Lafon or even consider who he wants. It takes 4 votes to go around a Superintendent should be the same or even just 3 votes to go around an AD. Just helps to add to the turmoil off the football field.

90 percent of the posters on here could care less about Ironton football period.

Every school in this area that made changes ran into all kinds of issues here is the list below:

- Rock Hill - took 3 years hired the same coach back twice
- Coal Grove - brought back the same coach hire a new coach he left and hired a new young coach
- Portsmouth - 5 years 3 different coaches
- South Point - I lost count of how many new coaches they have had a new one this year.
- Gallipolis - 3 different coaches in 5 years
Here you go again.

Talked to a board member. Who is out of town. said he knows they've talked to a couple. But they have not gotten a commitment from anyone. So doesn't look like they'll be voting on one early next week. When will it end.

I heard two names today that applied and not even interviewed. Both of them should have been. Sounds to me like the AD and principal are keeping qualified candidates out of the process for reasons they should be held accountable for.

After all the things I’ve heard about LaFon from some of my Ironton friends, it’s baffling that guy still has a job at Ironton.

I just drove by the High School, who knows who all of the Football players were on the field? They had helmets and Jessie’s on. Looked to be 40 or so players dressed.

You could tell they wasn’t high school kids for sure.
