Well I want take anything away from coach A because he had a good basketball program. but he was also the AD when the football program went in the wrong direction and continued in the wrong direction until he was gone. Then they brought in Chip English who had the football program headed in the right direction. And it looks like in football they only have 10 games on the schedule, sad when you cant schedule 11 games.

The 11th game is an endowment game. The money from that game goes to the state. Gives you the chance to drop one game off your record for playoff seeding, and of course another game to get better. But, it isn't required and they may have had a hard time finding somebody to play. Contracts for games are usually 2 years. Sometimes it's hard to fill that spot because of that. Or, the AD and/or HFC are just lazy. Some places the HFC does the schedule, others the AD does it.

Chip was a great hire. If the support would have been there No doubt he would have stayed. While money was probably a factor as well money doesn’t define you in most cases it’s all about being happy. West Caldwell had a good core nucleus of young coaches both football and basketball that came from pretty prestigious programs as assistants. Being a Hibriten grad. Some are saying West May only have enough to field a varsity team. You are in the wrong league for numbers to dwindle like they are look for a long long 0-11 season in gamewell in 2018....

That's what you have been saying but nothing has happened and what is going to change at West Caldwell. If you know who they are getting for a basketball coach lets here it but you don't have a clue.

Chip used West as a stepping stone, he was not in it for the long haul when he came there, and I think he got plenty of support. He left for a better opportunity and I guess you can't blame him for that but he was not planning on staying at West.

On another Good note for Former West Caldwell grad and Hibriten coach Chad Keller he had over 85 kids at his annual basketball camp. He is doing a great job at at dominant football school. The basketball talent is definitely shifting to the red and black side and I love it!!! Could be another year where Hibriten wins more football games than west Caldwell does in basketball last season they did.....

It is sad how this bunch out at West has let everything go to the other side of town. They have destroyed athletics at West Caldwell.

I guess you know who it is or you are just as much in the dark as everybody else. I don't look for them to land anything good.

No disrespect, I don’t think you know who they are hiring. If you weren’t in on the interviews you don’t have a clue. Stop Lying to the masses out here!! For your sake you are wishing they hire somebody worth something to make up for all the excuses you have had the last 3 years.

What I'm saying icardcav3 give me five names with one of them being the one you think will be the next coach. so list your five and include the next West coach in the five names. Then when it is announced we will see if one of your names is there.

Breaking News: East Carteret basketball coach Billy Anderson is leaving the Mariners to go coach his alma mater West Caldwell. He told me a couple years ago it's the only job he would leave EC for. And today is the day. Good luck coach! And thanks for the great memories!

I hope it's not Hank if it is that would be another bad choice so that would not surprise me out of that bunch out there. I don't think Burgess is a good fit at all and we know its not Jesse Bean so Keller could be a maybe because he may want to come home, but my money is on Billy Anderson.
