I've heard a couple names for the job to, but I've also heard that Charlie Kitchen spoke to Bazler the superintendent about the job. He did a great job in a short time when he took over the West job when Gibson quit early in the season. He had Alf Bricker and that group of guys. Tough bunch but they bought in to what he wanted and it turned out great for those seniors. I think it was the first non losing season that West had had in a few years. Kitchen would be a good choice of a teaching job would become available. Maybe the super should work on that. Just my opinion.
The guy took over like mid season. No prior knowledge of the players or what they could do.
Alot of these coaches worry way too much about plays, and not enough about fundamentals and discipline.
Your right West Fan. From my understanding one of the big problems eith that team was team unity and discipline. They would bicker and argue with each other during a game. When Kitchen came in he stopped all that and brought them together as a team and not a bunch of individuals. That's not an easy thing to do when you come in to a situation like that. With that said he did do a nice job with them. He would have stayed there but the circumstances were the same then as they are now. No teaching position
