Congrats to Coach Dunigan and the Fed Hock program.

I've called Kevin "partner" on WLGN radio and on broadcasts on LoganFootball.com. His passion and love of high schools sports can't be questioned.

Can't wait to see him be successful as a Lancer.

Can Dunagain turn it around or will he, much like his name, be one and done again? I know cousin Luke is great at judging talent in players and coaches, and he thinks this is a good hire but the guy has no experience. I cautioned Luke on this one, but he was hell bent on the guy. Maybe he had too many Monster drinks the day he interviewed him? Or, maybe he wants the basketball team to go winless so as to not out do the football team? Only time will tell.

Maybe "cousin Luke" should have taken it? :o

Give him a chance. Coach Dunigan is a great guy. He is very passionate about the sport and he knows his round ball well. He is lean on coaching experience but he does have some coaching experience and he's been a bball ref in the area for sometime now. He has ref'ed many of the teams Fed Hock faces every year. That could and should give him somewhat of an advantage with some of the coaches and players in the area, in that he will know the tendencies some coaches and players will have is certain situations. The biggest thing is going to be getting the players and fans to buy into it as it is when ever a new HC takes over in any sport.

Well if he was paying attention to tendencies while officiating that shows he can focus on the task at hand. :lol: Should bode well for coaching. ;)

You people need to relax. He will do a fine job. He cares, he is passionate, he is knowledgeable, and he will work his butt off. So leave him alone and give him a chance.

Perhaps you should have thrown your name in the hat then? Guy wants the job, is willing to take on a program that has been struggling of late, wants to do good. Every varsity coach in the world had to start somewhere. Athens coach had no head coaching experience at freshmen, jv or varsity level & took the bulldogs to the convo in his first year. Dont judge until there is something to go on. Revisit this post in February, then at least if someone has displeasure with Dunigan's coaching ability there will be substance to dispute.

I would say Mr. Dunigan enjoys the game of Basketball and looks at this as a challenge . Good for him ! Teaching the game is rewarding and he will start with a team that been on the bottom . I will say if the players like him look for improvement . I will be watching from a distance and I will be rooting for this program. Remember hard work is rewarding and success is possible.

The bottom line is that cousin Luke could have had me back in the land of the great spotlight but he didn't come up with enough money

In the history of high school coaching there has been a lot starting out with little experience, if not we wouldn't have had the first coach in high school basketball. Things might be against him but that is what most young coaches like. What new coach doesn't ask around?

Everybody is a new coach at some point. I'm pretty sure all new coaches try and get some extra guidance from time to time as well.

ANY first year HEAD coach should do exactly what Coach Dunigan is doing - pick the brains of "coaches" who have "been there" ! as a HEAD Coach YOU are responsible for NOT just the "varsity" YOU are responsible for JV, MS as well ... THAT in itself is a daunting task of trying to put a coaching staff together which WILL do what YOU want done in preparing players to be ready for varsity ball 4 years down the road ... getting a coaching "staff" that understands the roles YOU as the HEAD coach want them to play, to get them to buy into YOUR philosophy ie. "we're going to teach every kid - from the least talented to "Joe Stud Athlete" - the basics of the game, no player is going to be allowed to slide by on only their athletic ability ... or "W's & L's" are not as important to me as the HEAD coach as making sure kids get PT, kids are TAUGHT/LEARN the basics of the game, of the positions so that when players get to the varsity level "I" - the HEAD coach can coach , so the players are learning the game of basketball at the varsity level - not how to set a pick, or getting into the triple threat position etc. ...

... I've posted before that I will be keeping an eye on FH this season ... Coach Dunigan is a Logan grad ... it will be worth a trip to see the Lancers progress on the hardwood this season ... I wish Coach Dunigan & his staff the best ...
