He's giving up magic to move home and coach the Marauders? :lol:

In all seriousness, it sure would be something to see Wolfe Jr. as a head coach. That would be all kinds of entertaining.

I know of 3 people who have applied. All three have been listed on this topic at some point. No they are not Bartrum, Wolfe Sr or Jr, or Caldwell (Howie nor Jeff).

Not sure the time frame for hiring, but I would think they would hire sooner than later.

Looks like Drummond has a legit shot at it.

Sure if they want more negative attention.

There was an Eastern person on the list, I won't say it was Hill. But this person has ties to the Eagles.

I'm willing to give people second chances. I know I've needed some throughout my life and wouldn't be where I am today without them.

Also, Fonzie - if you're talking about Howie that would be pretty cool to see.

No, I am positive there is not a Caldwell on the list of applicants.

So there never was even an application by a Caldwell? This is bizarre. We might be back to square one with this thing.

You do have 3 really good applicants. I believe 2 are a better option than 1 of them. But the 1 I would call less deserving, is probably the most experienced. I am glad that decision is not up to me! I do believe any of the three would make the program better, as long as the parents give them a chance.

I’m hearing Jeremy Hill’s name tossed around a lot since Jeff Caldwell is a no go! Is he jumping from the frying pan into the fire?

I think its more people just assuming that Southern and/or Eastern coaches are always coaches Meigs looks to take from. Often because Southern and Eastern normally have good basketball coaches.

Which is surprising in my opinion. With Meigs being a larger school, in theory, they should have a much larger talent pool to pick from. But I would be willing to bet Southern and Eastern have held their own against Meigs over the years. It would be curious to see the overall records of those matchups. I think if Meigs can get someone in there that parents will allow to stay for more than a couple years, Meigs could really see some success.

I think Eastern and Southern have just had lots of stability where Meigs has been quite unstable.

I agree with that 100%. I think Caldwell at Southern was a turning point for that program. If he had been there a year or two earlier, I think he would have had a couple teams go further in tourney play. If memory serves correct, Richard Stevens wasted a couple years of talent prior to Jeff Calwell taking the job.

I agree Fonzie. I would like to see Meigs have some stability in their program also. That’s why I’m asking if Hill is the man for the job? You hear a lot of negative from Eastern about him. Is it just parents being parents the way they are nowadays? Because if he had trouble with parents at Eastern, he’s definitely going to have problems with parents at Meigs!!!Let’s face it, unfortunately, that’s the way it is!!! Did parents have a legitimate gripe at Eastern? Just asking because like I said I would like to see someone be able to stay at Meigs!!

Only a few typical parents, trying to contaminate to better their own kids. To answer your question about legitimacy of complaints, with a question...was Hill ever non-renewed? Why do you think Caldwell left about 6/7 years ago to go to Fed Hock? He knew what the future had to hold and he most definitely was aware of the parents! Parents said that Britton was the worst coach they had ever seen...he leaves, goes to Fort Loramie and has had multiple regional appearances along with one of the top five teams in the state for the past three years.
