Was told yesterday about the difficulty of hiring coaches in that county.  Stipends, teaching positions available in the school and that sort of thing.  When the header started in about that I told him, "I can make all that easy for you.  We don't need a stipend and I don't care about a position in the school."  His eyebrows went up and he replied that simplified the matter.  I figured it would.

Good luck Dave on the second meeting

Thanks Robert.  We will see.  Regardless, it needs to be a good fit on both ends.  I imagine I'll know something by the conclusion of today's meeting.  Their JV has gone 0-8, 0-8, 3-7, 4-5 over the past 4 seasons so that's something I'm looking for. ;) Their Varsity hasn't won more than 3 games over the past three seasons and the state champs are also in their conference.  State champs have outscored them 124-20 over the past two years.

Coach W and I met with the Varsity header today for a couple of hours.  Meeting went well.  There's still certifications, background checks and the typical paperwork that's still to be processed.  I thought things were finalized but I found out tonight that we still have one more meeting to attend on Thursday afternoon.  We're meeting with the entire football staff for a Q&A.  I guess it's called "vetting" and it seems they are going to make sure.

Congratulations!

A vetting process is a good thing, not only for them but for you & Coach W. It will give you valuable insight into how things go there. You may also learn why they haven't been successful. Good luck!

I will wear a suit with cut off sleeves and a hoodie.  That should cover all the bases.

I was thinking hoodie instead of a suit jacket. Cut off sleeves of course.
