I'm curious to who they might be. If you don't want to share on here, can you PM me? The only reason I want to know is because I think I might know who at least 2 of them are.

I grew up in an area close to Vandalia and my parents still live there. My brother owns a Crossfit Gym right there in Vandalia.

I think that is a very attractive job. Vandalia is in a prime location relative to Dayton. Not too close, but close enough. There are some really nice areas combined with affordable areas but no really bad areas. There are plenty of apartments and the schools have historically been pretty solid.

Vandalia is a step up from some surrounding communities both athletically and academically. Northridge always sucks at Football but I bet there are a few really good athletes on their team. Coaching is just horrible. Northmont has built a solid program and is adjacent. Then you have Wayne right up the road. I am sure there are players on that team that might be sitting behind somebody and would love to get some early playing time. If my kid was an elite athlete at Bethel, we would be transferring to play better competition and Vandalia is right there. If you run a spread offense, you will see new players coming in. If you run the triple option, forget about it.

I agree Pick...Butler is a great opportunity for athletes to shine. Bigger and better facilities than a lot of schools but smaller than Wayne and Northmont. Guys that might not get shot at those DI’s can come and shine at a big DIII. Again the right coach and culture and this place could turn into an absolute powerhouse. Baseball hasn’t won state but they are consistently good and always competing for championships. That is a shining example of what can be. Same kids, same talent but the program has a reputation that people want to be apart of and they have great coaching and culture.

Wayne and Northmont are right next to Butler as D1 schools. Butler will never be a transfer destination until they win and advance in playoffs regularly.

Any rumors of the interviews? Any one can pm me! I may be old but I am a techie!

Obviously the committee doesn't think so.

Curious why someone messaged you to tell you who the final 3 are. You must know someone doing the interviews.

This whole process has moved extremely fast especially when you consider the job is going to an outside candidate. The job was posted only two weeks ago and they are already down to final interviews. These are probably three guys they targeted from the very beginning or one of them was already the guy they wanted.IMO

He would be my choice. They may go another direction, but he is without question the most qualified coach out of the 3 candidates.

Meeks makes the most sense. HC experience and a really solid track record.

I guess it's no big deal to say. You can get the list of applicants on a public records request anyway. I've been told Meeks, Gillespie and Puckett are the 3 finalists. Pretty much what a lot of people thought from the beginning.

Meeks seems to apply for virtually every job, but now seems to be a good time to move on IMO. Shawnee's talent has leveled off the last few years, and I think it'll probably be a while before their a legit league and playoff contender again. Things get even tougher when London joins the CBC in a couple years, as they'll have talent equivalent (or better) than Bellefontaine had this year coming of varsity age. If they continue to play legit playoff teams non-league, I can't see Shawnee going any better than 6-4 for the foreseeable future.

IMHO, they should offer the job to Meeks and not look back.

What he said could have many different interpretations. Before this year a lot of Centerville people made comments on how bad their Defense was.

If a down year is 6-4 he might want to stay at Shawnee. This coming years Butler team will probably be around 6-4. The two years after that they are going to be way down. They are looking at back to back seasons with probably 3 wins or less. The talent and depth just isn't there.

Looks like Meeks will be the new Head Coach.... Great hire in my opinion.
