Seems like its been open for a while and they would probably want them hired before the next semester. Any candidates your hearing?

You would think that this would be a job that has a multitude of candidates. I haven't boo from anyone I know about this job. That is a little strange to me. Usually by now you have heard 5-10 names thrown around.

Not a bad list at all, if Avery and or little help out that would be huge.

It may not be the “big names” people want. But the big guy names had to start somewhere as a no name. So I’m willing to give anyone a chance. Because you never know, the next guy could be a bust, or legend.

Isn’t that as it should be? Especially if the candidate currently has a head coaching job somewhere else.

Yeah, maybe the guy (LL) who got drunk and killed an innocent woman who bought his way out of it then to only get another DUI a few years later should probably not have anything to do with the program and/or any role mentoring young kids...

Your probably right about LL. The other coaches are good choices, but what about a young coach who is from the area and done a good job with his first HC job. Like Cort Radford from Chase? I know he's from the area, was DC at Crest before going to Chase. And he's from Asheville. Just a thought.

I’ve heard his name twice by two different people. I just haven’t got around to ask my source about him.

If the legal system says he’s ok, he’s ok with me. A horrible tragedy but he paid his debt to society as far as I’m concerned

When former nfl players are around the program and they are Asheville alumni, that’s a good thing. Be it john Avery or Leonard little. Both are incredibly well known at AHS. If it’s buchanan that’s fine too. He would be a great step in the right direction, particularly as far as the strength and conditioning is concerned and he doesnt take any s____ or excuses.

Ah hell Asheville could win most years with no coach at all. Around here anyway.

You got that right. We had 2-3 guys off the top of my head that played varsity as sophomores and weren’t even slightly better as seniors.
You had the talent to be a lot better than 4-7 in my opinion.

I was told that a Rosman High School assistant applied. Former player under Brett Chappell at East Henderson and went on to play at Christ School then onto to college football at North Greenville University. His name is Austin Cooke. Not sure if they would give it to someone that young but he would definitely bring some energy and youth to the program that they seem to need back in their.

He went 10-3 at Chase this season, only losses coming to playoff teams Burns and Shelby (who of course played in the regional finals) and Brevard in the second round of the playoffs. Beat Draughn in the first round. Granted he didn’t beat any great teams but he did a great job with that program this year.

I was looking at rental property in and around Asheville. It is super expensive to live there. That combined with lack of administrative support and coaches on campus may be a problem finding a coach.

I can only assume at the point, Asheville high is waiting on me to put in an application for the head coaching job. What a disgrace this has been so far. What a disadvantage Asheville high is at already compared to other teams with it being nearly February and no hire. Pathetic

I'm curious to see how long he stays at Asheville. He hasn't been at any coaching job very long before he moves on.
