Anyone know what happened to Coach Gregory?

Site is down and has been down for a time.  Is he ok?  I can understand if he finally retired from coaching or something...would have half expected some sort of announcement.
If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

I would guess family and work.  I know a couple of years ago his career took a good turn but also required a lot more out of him.

And his kids are getting older, so that's going to be a time suck. He pretty much started becoming scarce as he began coaching his own kids.

He's active on FB.

He is very active on Facebook. Coaching his sons in multiple sports....doing well.

Im not sure why he is no longer active with his site or here? Burnout would be my guess.

If I recall correctly Jack was working some kind of deal with Championship Sports (?) that was occupying his time and effort.

One of my ACs was impressed that I knew Jack.  ("He's one of the guru's!" he said.)  Heck, I'm impressed that I know Jack.  You won't ever meet a better guy.

I am not retired.  Just busy.  Between work and coaching both my boys life is a little crazy so I don't get to be on the boards as much.  Both of my boys play triple A baseball and I just handed my youngest son off to the same program that my older son plays in so I won't be coaching his AA team any longer. 

At one point I was coaching AA baseball, competitive basketball, and football it just got crazy.  No more coaching baseball other than my two boys who do more private lessons now....  Nice to be a parent in at least one sport :)

My older son is playing baseball (plays 1B and pitcher) and basketball (forward) and has decided to drop football for now... He played last fall and played at QB and did really well for his first season at that spot but his heart is in baseball and basketball.  He is playing spring baseball and getting ready to start basketball.  My youngest is playing baseball, basketball, and football and probably would play soccer and anything else we let him...  Right now he is playing baseball and flag football.   

My youngest son's head coach asked me to coach their oline and dline which will be a nice change.  I helped coach their dline last season and it was fun so I am looking forward to especially since I will not be coaching a football team this fall.  I assistant coach my oldest son's basketball team and head coach my youngest son's basketball team... 


I dropped the DWS site and the Doublewing site because I just don't have time to take care of them properly.  I will update the links on this site when I get some free time.  As always if you shoot me an email I will respond to it.

Good to hear from you, Coach, and that all is going well. Just busy is a good thing.
