Coaching bleed needs to stop

The bleeding has not stopped in the coaching ranks at South Panola and I don’t like it. I am calling for those in charge to stop, take a look at what is going on and do something.

Why all of a sudden is a coaching staff that was responsible for getting the team in position to compete for a national championship title not good enough to stay?

Why is a coaching staff that has seen 56 players sign college scholarships all of a sudden blamed for the players not making the grade?

Find out where these accusations are coming from and nip them in the bud.

There is no reason for three coaches to jump ship at one time and for one to be fired just to tear down the football program. That is what I believe. Some people who have been hired are trying to tear down the football program under the cover of “academic performance.”

They won a national championship while being a high performing school so that excuse does not fly. Honestly, I have not seen anything to disprove that theory.

The situation at South Panola needs a real hard look before the kids return to school in August.
