I hope they hire a coach that wants to get the program back on track. I’d start with someone who can keep the best players @ Belpre & attempt to revive the peewee program.
Maybe they can get a former OSU player to take over. Either that, or since you mentioned the peewee program, maybe they could get a peewee coach to take the varsity? Didn't they try that for a few years in football? Or was that somewhere else? :o
Gray Cat, Belpre did have a former peewee basketball coach for a couple of years (2009? or 2010?). That didn’t work out and was a disaster. I’m sure people remember the OU Convo inciden at districts. The last time they were regularly beating teams in the TVC was in 2012-2014 and Jordan Thornhill was the coach.

If Belpre keeps their best players “in house” then they will be at the top of the TVC-Hocking. The problem is their best players all transfer to Warren or Parkersburg Catholic. They lost five college-level athletes to those two schools from 2014-2021 (all 1000 point scorers). They lost Stadleman to Warren last year, who started for Warren by the end of the year….he’s a freshman and likely a 1000 point scorer. Keep the talent in house, Belpre wins.
Was Thornhill the one that had the talented but undisciplined players?

Why was Thornhill ever let go in the first place?

Sir, I was trying to be sensative to what happened. His "decisions" caused him not to be employed.

Have they made a decision on a new one for this year yet?

Didn't they just hire a new AD a few weeks ago? Probably waited for him to make the hire.

Yes, they hired a new AD (a warren guy') like a month ago around the same time frame the basketball coach resigned. Had plenty of time to hire someone.

Have a friend who applied that has over 200 wins and never even got a call. Maybe the principal will name himself the coach. Like he told the old coach he was his assistant.

They should just let the football coach do both football and basketball. He's doing such a great job with football how could he not do well with basketball? Plus the Big M seems to really like him, so it should be a no brainer. :mrgreen:

Board meeting for Belpre on Thursday I believe, maybe they'll approve a coach?? I've still heard no rumors on a candidate.
