    Re: Surprising Coaching changes

    I think placing Pelham and Helena may have been guesswork since there was no actual attendance data from the schools to go on other than what the old Pelham school had.

    For Alabaster I think it was mainly a matter of wanting more local control. It really didn't matter to me as my son (an only child) will be a senior next year so any major changes won't be seen for several years. We are going to get a new Thompson HS building so that is a good thing as they will be able to close the old intermediate building (after everyone else moves around) as it is too small for its purposes.

    I think Pelham just decided to play follow the leader when we left. The same guy who did our feasibility did theirs. Both times he said we had the money to do it. I wouldn't be surprised if a few other Shelby systems bail in the next few years. I personally didn't have a huge problem with Shelby County Schools but so far the change seems to have been a good thing. I hop it increases my property value.

    As you probably know, in Alabama there are a lot of city school systems in small towns. We hired our superintendent from Saraland.

    There is a neighborhood in Pelham that is currently zoned for Chelsea schools that is trying to get deannexed from Pelham so they won't have the long drive to Pelham schools.

    Re: Surprising Coaching changes

    Yes on Helena they have to estimate much like they did with the new school in Montgomery. They generally get pretty close to real numbers in their estimations. Of course you will probably have quite a few move ins that the estimation wont pick up so I figure after all of that Helena will move up for sure in 2 years when they re-classify.

    I don't blame them, crap it can take a good 30 minutes to get from Pelham to Chelsea when traffic is bad. Sometimes longer than that! When I first got into line work we started in Pelham and worked in the surrounding towns and it would take us a good 30 minutes to get from Food World on 31 in Pelham to County Road 11!

    As far as I know they are still in Pelham. Given that they'd have to provide bus service for these people, I can't imagine why they wouldn't want to let them go. Yes, they'd lose tax revenue, but they'd also no longer be providing police and fire service.

    It would be much simpler driving to Chelsea HS than having to get to Pelham HS (which is a pain coming from anywhere).

    A little late but Hewitt-Trussville hired a Gus Malzhan protege Josh Floyd. He had a 99-21 record at Shiloh Christian Ark. but in don't think it's will be as easy for him in Alabama. Especially with Hoover in his region.

With MGM moving up to 7A he will be an unknown before you know it. He might be paid well for it but I just don't see them putting up with it for too long.
    He didn't.

    SEMMES, Alabama -- Mary G. Montgomery principal James Gill confirmed to AL.com Thursday afternoon that he has relieved football coach Mike Dean of his coaching duties effective immediately.
    Defensive coordinator Tim Hardegree has been elevated to interim head coach and will coach the team in its season finale Friday night at Vigor.
    "We decided to make the change this afternoon," Gill said. "We wanted to take the program in a different direction. There was a difference in philosophy on coaching so we wanted to go ahead and make this change."

    There must have been something pretty bad going on. I mean, firing a coach the morning of the last game of the season?

    Re: Surprising Coaching changes

    Crimson I've heard some stories about him that I've never doubted by the way, and if you would have heard it you would say "that's him". He'll NEVER stay at one school. Until these gullible principals quit falling for his act only then will he stay on as a teacher at one school. I think his wife is about to tell him to give up coaching which won't work either (she is from that area I think).

    There is NO WAY I would hire the dude.

    I told Belle in January DuBose would lose a game he shouldn't. He did that this past weekend against Prattville. They lost 26-7 at home after beating Prattville 42-34 at Prattville earlier in the season.

    He's been known to do that but I think he'll have Central where they haven't been in a while in a few years.

    He does it every year. With all the D1 talent he had at Prattville, Florence, and CPC, he continues to not be as good as he could be.
