Someone on the committee reached out to him because of his last interview many years ago.

Localfan,

you seem to have the inside info now. Any change in your thoughts on Vlajkovich or do you still think he is wrong choice?

It just makes more sense! Why put a young guy mid 20’s in that position as head coach

My first question is why is he leaving Warren Harding they went 22-6 if I am not mistaken. The Canton Rep story said they are looking for someone to build up the program from the grade school level. How is and outsider that is not from nor live in community going to do that. On the list of applicants you had people that are equally qualified to handle the job that came through the school system and experience first hand what it takes to be a McKinley Bulldog basketball player. But no lets just pick this other guy because we think he can handled inner city kids Instead of choosing someone who once stood in the same position as them.

I once heard a great coach say when he talks to former players coming back to coach with him that they should not expect the players of today to play like he played. From generation to generation players change, attitudes change, and motivations change. McKinley fans need to listen because even if one of the greats comes back you are not guaranteed the players will understand, appreciate, or even care. It is not the same McKinley player. It will not be the same McKinley teams. These have been the problem for the last few years. You need to get someone that will coach the players that are here now not try to go retro for the next coach. the Future is where McKinley has to go.

Exacto mundo! This is the best post yet. It isn't where you're from that matters most. It's where you are as a coach.

I betcha this guy can coach, though. Just a hunch.
All those Fords are overachievers. They're all exteremely passionate. They're all driven.
Driven?.... Ford? Pardon the pun.

I agree I am not saying he can't coach. However, while I don't think the Mck job is what is used to be, it is still a good job. I felt that a more experienced coach would have been a better choice. I simply worry that a young coach in his early or mid 20's is in over his head. We shall see. I hope he is a great coach, I wish him well. IF he is the guy.

Can't disagree. I'd like to think McK is still a premier job. It's certainly a high pressure job. Not sure its a job for a young guy to cut his teeth on.

McK used to attract the Who's Who of coaching.

"Used to" is the key part of that statement.

IMO.. Now would be the ideal time to hire a candidate like Ford.

You are looking at a team with one player returning that played any significant
minutes and could be stating two or three sophomores. On the surface to expect anything more than a .500 season might be overly optimistic. So I don't think they have a lot to lose here.

Sure the good freshmen's father will still be coaching at McKinley.

The new coach will be aware of the situation of the good freshmen and his father as coach.

Will the coach of the freshman be upset that someone who gets this job probably isn't any more qualified then him and take his kid elsewhere ? Very interesting and unusual final 2 from 40 apps.

You'll see it's one of the 2 probably mid week unless they bring back couple more to reinterview next week.
