Meigs Head Baseball Coach Search

Post by Nuke LaLoosh » Wed Sep 26, 2018 4:17 pm

Any word on the Meigs Marauders' head coach search? Have they received applicants? Do they have anyone in mind they would like to go after?

Have not heard much about it either. I would guess they have some interest, though. Pretty strong program over the years.

I believe it would be a good job to have. Respectable facility, with a little work it could be one of the best around. Typically has some talent to make teams pretty competitive. There are some negatives that would come with the job, but those are no different than coaching at any other school. I hope they get someone that wants to dive into the job, and stay for a long stent and keep some stability in the program.

The name that comes to my mind is Austin Dunfee. Extensive playing career, high school and collegiate, vast coaching experience at high level of competition. Graduate of Meigs, would have the ties to the area needed to get some support. Not sure if he is local anymore, but if he is, that is who they should be going after.

No idea if there is truth to this statement, but I heard a name today for the coaching job. I was told Caleb Sheets will be the head coach at Meigs. If I am not mistaken he graduated in 2015 or there about. I like seeing young guys in the coaching profession, mainly because kids can relate a little better with them. But I can also see where the responsibilities for a young head coach would have to feel somewhat overwhelming.

If this rumor is true, I wish the young man the best of luck.

Sounds like some young applicants. Hope they are ready for all the responsibilities and extra roles that come with being a varsity coach. Namely, all the things that have little to do with actually coaching baseball. It could be a little disillusioning I would guess. Wish the best to whoever gets the job.

Your're not kidding. It is astonishing how much responsibility a high school coach (of any sport) has, that has absolutely nothing to do with the sport they are coaching.

Maybe he will be both baseball and football.

What happened to Bissell? No details needed, resigned or let go?

From my understanding, he resigned. He is still teaching at Meigs as far as I know.

Britt Dodson will be the Marauder baseball coach. A helluva guy. Great with young men. I wish him nothing but the best. A solid leader for the baseball program.

Brent Bissell will be a hard act to follow. Of the three major sports, baseball has had the most success with Bissell at the helm. Brent has won league championships and made deep runs in the tournament, which the basketball and football teams have not done at Meigs

Agree. (One of the moderators must have removed the one and only post from "x factor" degrading Britt before he even stepped foot on the diamond).

Played high school ball with Britt and I have one thing to say about him. What a shame he was hired as a varsity baseball coach. Dad always said not to trust Britt as far as you can throw him and now I see why. Britt could honestly not even walk and chew gum at the same time in high school. They should've looked harder before hiring this guy to coach a varsity team. Back in school we said on thing about Britt. Send him back to the streets where he belongs. Maybe he'll be Meigs County's next commissioner too. Would be a shame if he gets it over Judge Crow or Swanny.
Thought Swanny's biggest fan was Swanny? Talk about non athletic and still wishing it was 81 and wearing a letterman jacket. He did alright with softball so I guess you don't have to be very good at sports back in the day to be an ok coach.

What's your beef with Britt? The guy is first class and cares about kids. You don't need to come here running your pipes about what happened in 1981. Those days are long gone.

No beef with Britt and think hes a good guy. I was taking jab at Ultimate Warrior who has been bashing Britt from day one about his athletic ability and character but in same breath talking up Swanny's greatness. I was trying to state that Swanny wasnt a great athlete "back in the day" and sometimes I think he wishes it still was 1981 but he ended up being a decent softball coach. So maybe because you weren't great "back in the day" he can still be a very good coach.
