How about Marcus Wattley? Former Copley player and assistant coach as well as assistant coach and Head Coach at St.VM. Iím not sure who survived the coaching change at Akron (where Wattley was on staff), but perhaps heíd be a candidate for his Alma Mater.

Good call. Sounds like a perfect fit.

He's a good fit for Copley,I'm pretty sure he's use to the politics that would come with the job and would definitely bring something Copley has never had in a head football coach......"Diversity"!!!!!

Being a Copley guy, I am aware of the challenges the football program has ahead of it in an attempt to regain some credibility. That being said, I often read here about all of the negative "politics" associated with the program. As a typical Friday night fan, with no dog in the fight, I usually am preoccupied with the on field play, rather than the behind the scenes drama. Totally agree,the program has a variety of problems, w/diversity in the coaching staff being a primary one. How those other issues are framed within the far reaching world of high school politics is something I am not aware of, but would like to hear other's opinions & examples of how politics are used within the Copley football program in a negative way as posted here.

No dog in the fight...🤔...Now where did I hear that saying, I like that Quote..... Any way , When I talk about politics I'm mostly talking about the parents of kids that were decent in peewee at a position because the father was the coach and played the kid and forced the kid to be decent or has to email the Head Coach and complain on how there kids should be getting time with another kids that is clearly better then their kids and the Coach to keep the peace let's the kid play and it's clear as crystal the kids no good, I know of many similar situations over the past few year were this has occurred.... And I speak for a fact not fiction, I know of a kid that his parents wouldn't let him consider going to Copley and play because of a similar situation and now that kid is flourishing on another team and he wanted to go to Copley and play...And I don't have a dog in the fight....

Not that hard: "No dog in the fight", simply refers to the fact I never have had any kids play football at Copley, past or present. So, I have no personal axe to grind, nor wood I if my kids decided they wanted to play football there.

"I have no dog in the fight." --- Michael Vick.

Yeee-hooo! Howdy-doodee all of y'all! My quarter of input here is simple. Any person placed in charge of an organization that makes decisions based on complaints from a parent because they "feel" their kid should be playing ahead of another that is clearly better, the record of the team will be proof that he should be fired. Pee wee football is exactly what it is. Give me a good running back in the pee wee and even up through freshman football, and you will win 80% of your games. Once you get to JV and varsity, you have to have some balance and have some linemen, or the running back that was so awesome and future Hall of Famer is nothing but a tackling dummy. Any head coach that bows down and plays a kid because he wants to keep the peace, deserves to be fired and will garner no respect from the community...except from the kid's parents who he is playing to keep the peace.

On the other hand, I have also experienced the situation where a parent has sincerely questioned why their son may not get some time, and when it is examined and looked at through the week and through film, it may be an advantage to the team to rest a two-way player for several plays it with a different player that is not getting much time. Coaches are not infallible, well, except me, I have never made a mistake when I was coaching my son in basketball when he was the point guard and the entire offense ran through him and he was the only one allowed to shoot the ball!!!!

Wasn't recently resigned coach C. from Copley an "outsider?" I mean, he was at Kent Roosevelt for more than a few years before taking the Copley job. So that being said, how do you consider if someone is an outsider? You might have a new HC on the way, but as long as the same core group of assistants continue to be a large part of the staff, many of the issues will remain. And since most asst coaches are employed teachers in the system, there isn't any reason to believe they won't remain on staff, unless they choose to leave.

Wonít the new head coach have say on who he hires even if the assistant coaches are teachers or not?

Most assistant coaches have been in the Copley system for years. I do believe the vast majority of those assistants are school staff. Even if a new HC hired was a teacher, there is no guarantee if he wanted to bring any fellow coaches/teachers from outside that they would have any priority in being hired in the district as a teacher. Plenty of other outside coaches in Copley employed in other positions, ie baseball, track, and basketball. But, the football assistants seem to have survived for multiple years, be it good or bad.

Thatís very interesting.. idk, I feel like if someone were to get hired as the head coach with give the assistants a chance to interview but the vast majority would be coaches the head coach brings in himself.

Most schools would have to have open teaching positions and budget for that...now if they want to coach here and work there then the coaches stipend would come out of the football budget 9 times out of 10..and if they can afford to do it. Most schools football budgets handle coaches pay and some equipment for the year. I am thinking that the Copley budget is at most 10,000. I am basing that on just what I see in comparison to Lake's.

Not every high school program is a Hoban, St Eds, McKinley, etc, where new coaches more often than not bring the majority of their own guys to make up the staff. Majority of public schools have contract language re employment opportunities outside of teaching in said district. I know of more than a few non school employees, who applied for various coaching vacancies within a district, who were turned down because a teacher in the school also applied, and was given higher priority due to their employment status currently at the school. I have also seen school teachers file grievences with their union if they didn't get a certain coaching job. Most school boards will be ok with hiring an outside the district head coach, & finding a teaching position within the school system for them. But, not so willing to do so for any assistant coaches looking for teaching employment in the district. Last thing a school board wants to deal with is a prolonged battle with a teachers union over who gets an assistant coaching job.

There is no way they interviewed 30. That is a crazy number and would take days to complete. If Wattley is truly a candidate, I am sure they interveiwed a few candidates to just say they did their due diligence, but Wattleyu is way over-qualified for Copley, so they would be crazy to pass him up.
