    Default Moss to Rockwall Heath?

    According to information from both Scout.com and The Old Coach.com, South Garland's Mickey Moss will leave S. Garland to fill opening at Rockwall Heath. If true, this is a great move for coach Moss - and tough news for SG and the GISD. Homer will have to scramble to replace him (likely with an assistant?).

    Moss has left SG in much better position football wise than when he came. The school itself has changed alot. I think that there might just be some top notch candidates for the job. The big questions will be assistants and linebacker.

    Speculation (and that is all it is) is that Austin will follow his dad wherever he goes...

    Just a question.. Can he just transfer to another school? Does both districts have to allow it? Is there ANY UIL rule that may cause any issue with this?

    I hope there's no issues, but thought I would ask the question for all others to answer (I don't know the answers).

    No; it's okay within the UIL rules. If a parent(s) moves to a new position within a new school district, then the transfer of any children is perfectly accpetable. The appropriate sign-offs will have to be made, but there should not be any problem.

    David McNabb is reporting that coach Moss will be named the HC at Heath at a meeting tonight.

    The frontrunner to replace him at South Garland appears to be Keith Fisher, HC of the 2A Division 1 state champ Farmersville Farmers.

    Homer's bringing in another good one...

    Why would he do that?

    I thought South Garland was a better program than Heath... shows what I know.

    Isn't it Keith Wright of Farmersville? Wonder if he will have the SG receivers in 3-point stances?

    Money - ~$80k+ compared to $92k+
    Able to build teams with his program from Middle school (7th) grade up - there is a 'dedicated' middle school that only feeds Heath HS
    Facilities - Heath has one of the best on-site facilities
    Competative - Very hard district (Rockwall, Highland Park, Royse City)
    Future growth - Heath and Rockwall could in the next re-alignment go to 5A due to growth in the area.

    Thanks! The raise alone would be enough for me to take the job.

    After looking at some Farmersville stats and talking to a couple of folks who are close to that program, it makes little sense to me to bring in Keith Wright. He is a run first coach whose philosophy is all about pounding on the other team and running them over. He had great success at Farmersville after they dropped from 3A to 2A and seems to be a winner, but it seems that bringing him in would be a total departure from what the Colonels have done under Moss - does this team need to be overhauled like that?

    Should be interesting...

    Moss left, IMHO, because he lost his QB and, really, South has been competitive recently because they have had a nice string of passing QB's. Without those QB's, South would have been just another run-of-the-mill GISD team....that's the truth...truth be known.

    I mean, it's done all the time. Heck, the Royce City coach left for Mesquite Horn for the cash, sure, but he also got moved up to 4A and into a monster of a district that includes Highland Park. He would have the smallest enrolement school in 4A playing in possibly the toughtest 4A district in the state....I'd be out too.

    Maybe they are going to a running coach because they don't feel they can support, in talent, a passing game that has been so productive for so long.

    With Garland going to the spread, maybe they figure there will be an attraction to South for power players.....

    Who knows.....it's all speculation right now.....just my best speculation at this point.

    Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it......shut up about the 10% and deal with the 90%....you have control over the 90%.

    CHARACTER is not found in a bottle, a pipe, a doob, a line, a hit, a needle, or any other means of obsession that alters the mind and creates illusions of grandeur, no matter how hard you look for it there... If you have to prop it up with a substance....it ain't CHARACTER.
