Gallia Academy Football 2017

Postby Sharon Peters » Sun Jan 08, 2017 3:55 pm

Once again blue devil nation needs a coach. I have the following questions:

Who does the community want for the job? Can they ante up an enticement for that dude from wheelersburg?

What can be done to stop the exodus of talent? I mean how can we be losing kids to freakin south Gallia?

Why would anyone want this job? Will business men and school administrators ever hire a coach and then simply step back and let him coach?

This was the marquee job in the area not so long ago and now it's a complete joke.

You need to contact Southern Racine and find out what they did when they needed/wanted a coach last time. They found a way to attract one of the best coaches in the area, and one that a local school had rejected for a "local legend." Of course many from that school are now kicking themselves, but Southern is very grateful for the gift.

It cost me a few free haircuts to help get the new coach in but it has been worth it. I just hope he stays.

They..... asked him. It was the right timing for him! Go figure!
Turns out, playing in the NFL doesn't automatically make you a good high school football coach. Don't get me wrong, the current coach isn't a terrible coach by any means, but he's not Coach Chancey.

I don't think the job is a joke. And really don't think administrators or Businessman have much effect on the job they do. You seem to think this is still the days of us having over 200 boosters and most of them being business men and prominent people i am sure they had a lot of influence but that hasn't been the case in over 10 years. Matter of fact for them to here from business men they have to go find them. A ton of local businesses are no longer run or owned by GAHS grads that good ole boys network i dont see now. not saying there is not pockets but very little compared to when i went to school there in early 80's. Most kids do not trade school for sports. i am not saying it doesn't happen but... if you look at all the kids that are going to school out of district i doubt if even 25% are even athletes.

I will disagree with this.. they did one coaching search and that search committee had a poor 2 finalists.. they hired one.. he cut and ran after one year of destroying the program.. then they just went and told there second choice the job is yours.. And he is a very good family man with young children not even school age yet.. not a bad football man but he put no time into job.. his family was his priority..

So I will go with one horrible decision.... and then pure laziness from a athletic director who did a horrible job..

I think if they get good candidates they will make a good choice this time.. the problem will be all the usual finding a teaching position for the person and so on.. sometimes these choices have less to do with football then maybe they should

svac83 -

Two good posts. You may have phrased what I was trying to say better than I did. I didn't mean that GAHS hired bad people necessarily, but I would say each of the last two coaches left the program no better than they found it - and in all honesty, worse than they found.

You're also right about non-football matters being a huge part of these decisions. Sometimes we forget these men are living their lives and have family and financial considerations in addition to football ones.

Good luck to Gallipolis. Lots of good people in Gallipolis who deserve someone committed to returning the Blue Devils to a high level of play.

Here is why I think Pernod will be next Blue Devil coach..
Now I understand he might not even apply but my guess is there is a 50/50 chance.. If he applies I think he would be hired.

Here is why this is possible.. he still lives in Gallia County.. His wife is very active in the community.. He still has strong ties with a lot of staff at school.. He has good real action ships of buisness community some of them still donate to him at Alexander.. he understands the job and he understands the culture..

And the number one reason I think he will apply.. He is a smart man.. A man of character.. He is not egotistical, he would love more time for his family and he won't let pride stand in his way of doing what is right..

If he doesn't apply it won't be why most people think..it won't be facilities, it won't be him saying screw you should of hired me before. It won't be because of a lack of talent of politics involved with the job.. if he doesn't apply it is because he is a man of character he has made a commitment to the community of Albany and to the players on his team..

But I say he weighs all his options and is Nlue Devils next head coach.. now I suck at predicting things so I could be totally wrong..

If they would have hired McClelland the first time around, coach Chancey may have already been there on his staff. I remember it being considered. I think Southern is a great place for Coach.

If that is true george, the only reason i would see him staying at Meigs would be b/c of loyalty. Do you know when they offered him the gallia job?
And that's the bottom line, b/c Stone Cold said so....

Josh Rife is a good football coach with a great football background. He is the type of person that anyone would want their son to play for. Simple facts are that GA does not have the talent they once had. If they had talent Coach Rife and staff would have had a winning record. Penrod i am sure is a good football coach, Alexander had one of the if not the most talented groups of kids come through the last couple of years and they won some games. What happened this year? Did Penrod take the year off? No they finished dead last in the TVC because they were the least talented team in the TVC. Same scenario holds true for Mike Chancey when they had talented players at Meigs his teams won games, no talent no wins.

I beleive it is arrogant/dangerous to hire a guy give him 2 years fire him because he didnt win enough games when no coach in America would win with that bunch. Then think other coaches will knock your door down to come to GA and deal with that? Laughable. Swimming in some murky water GA.

What direction is that? Losing games you should win? Or overscheduling so you have no chance to make the playoffs? Lol

Penrod would be a homerun hire. Not sure if they can lure him away from Alexander, but if so, Gallia can pats themselves on the back for a job well done.
