Whitley County Head Coaching Search
#1
Anyone hearing anything?
#2
I’ve only seen some talk of someone from the middle school seems to have interest.

I think if I were Whitley County and a search is on, you’d see if some assistant coach in a program that has a winning record or maybe recent state championship is even interested. A few phone calls from someone assisting with hiring or on a committee putting feelers out there.

I’d think Whitley could be an attractive job. They have a nice stadium. There’s talent in the area and you could be very competitive. I think there’s more to like than not about the job.

I've talked to 3 coaches that I thought would be interested in Whitley Co job. All 3 told me not interested in the slightest, which surprised me a bit.

Are there any TN guys that might be interested?
#4
From everything I’ve heard and seen the last couple of years has been the first time for as long as I can remember that Whitley Co has not been interested in doing a political hire. I thought Irwin was the prefect fit, if they could find someone similar it would be huge for the program. The bingo money should make this an attractive job for a lot of coaches, the right person with the know how, could really build something there...

That rumor about a middle school coach was started by the interested party or one of his relatives.  Believe me when I tell you there is zero interest from the administration in hiring anyone that currently coaches at the middle school, period!

I am curious about the hire they make. I know there has to be someone out there looking for a head coaching job and teaching gig. Heck, I could name a few folks to call but I’m not on the hiring committee. I know one that lives in Scott County Tennessee that coaches in Anderson County Tennessee that might entertain the idea.

I heard this morning they were looking strongly at Mark Payne from Southwestern
#9
They must be keeping it close to the vest. No one is hearing anything?
#10
Was told Steve Jewell is a new front runner, come in for a few years and hand the reigns off to his son. Not sure if this is a good idea or not, also not sure if it's true, but it's definitely being talked about by people.
#11
Imo that would be a disaster

I tend to agree if I remember correctly one year he lost to South Laurel, Williamsburg, and Bell County in consecutive weeks and frankly it's hard to deny that Corbin was vastly improved after his departure. Then on top of all of that if the deal requires you to handcuff yourself with your next coach after him, it just seems like a recipe for disaster.

The one thing Whitley needs to stay away from is politics, it’s been horrible there and is a big reason the program has suffered, hiring someone like Jewell would only serve to make it worse.

Did they actually hire Mark Payne or you just asking for thoughts on him as a candidate?

I could be a little biased but I think Mark Payne would be a great hire!!!
#19
Please stop calling me Whitley County. I don’t want the job....I would take how ever the job as bingo president.

Are we talking about bright or Eier? Saw both in the posts and got confused.

Who is he?  What does his resume look like?  Has it been announced publicly?

Looks like it’s official. The article is very basic. Does anyone have any other information on his resume? https://www.thetimestribune.com/sports/w...912d5.html
#26
I'm really curious about his resume, looks really young and I wouldn't have imagined a position coach at Cumberlands would be their top choice.

I am sure the great Whitley faithful are excited about this hire. Lol

Seems like a strange hire for HC at a 5A school to me. A 28ish yr old coach who is a rb coach at Cumberlands with no coordinator or HC experience over all of the other experienced guys that applied. Maybe I’m missing something or he is just a up and coming coaching stud. Either way, good luck to Whitley and their new staff
#29
Can’t say much more than good luck. I can’t decide why this hire but whatever. Hope it pays off.
