Which would you rather have fill a 5A head coaching vacancy.

A head coach from a lesser (3A/4A) classification with no 5A experience and no state title game experience..

or

A coordinator at the 5A level who has won a 5A state title in the last 3 years, with no head coaching experience....

Here's a question for you, Hire an experienced Coach from a successful program with or without Head Coaching experience or hire a young inexperienced coach who has passion and willing to put in the time to build a program from the ground up for a program that has had no success at anytime regardless of who's been at the helm?

anytime you can get a head coach that has been successful, take him
if he has been successful at 5A, even better
a successful coordinator may be a successful head coach, but he may also fail....it's 2 different jobs, so it is always a risk when you hire an assistant to be the HC.
sounds like you are mad that your DC didn't get the job, right?

Hire a succesful coordinator or Head Coach...perfect examples: Drew Svoboda HC at Klein Collins, Shane Hallmark HC at Klein..

Not really. Curious as to what has worked in the past for other programs. It is a moot point, for the moment; Fedora turned us down, as reported in the Eagle this morning.

Here's a question for you, will that coach up and leave you after signing an extension. For a mere 5,000 more a year and turn his back on his own school/town?

Maybe if you matched the offer or offered him something better..Coaches need to make a living to support their families..if you have a mere 5,000 sitting around pass it on..:D

My guts says I'd go with the successful coach on lower levels... but there are dozens of examples of coordinators stepping up and becoming winnin head coaches.

The most recent example being Tony Heath going from OC at LaMarque to HC at Pearland. Yes, it took him about a decade to hoist the trophy, but he almost instantly made his team into one of the best in the Houston area... and let's face it, the 1990's LaMarque Cougars were basically a 5A program playing on the 4A level.

Point Made...

It doesn't matter...but he better have a "consistent" winning record on his resume...:D

How about a 5A head coach with a successful record, including a state appearence.....from Cy Falls. In the B/CS paper today. Raffield named.

A great coach (or coordinator) is not necessarily defined by whether or not he's achieved a state title game appearance. Just sayin'...

I'd take a coach from 4A depending on the school he's from, winning record, references, etc. 3A... nah.
