Dalton Basketball Opening

Dalton has their varsity boys basketball job posted. This makes four WCAL coaches from last season that will not return next season. Coaching at a small school must be rough these days.

Thoughts on candidates here? There is certainly a lot of talent, especially the 9th and 10th graders

Dalton is loaded in the younger grades. This would be very attractive but the timing is awful.

The timing of this is interesting. That could and probably means a limited search. Not many head coaches are going to leave their programs in mid June. Could end up with an internal candidate, an assistant from another program (there are lots of good ones) or maybe an older guy that retired, but might be lured back, especially with the talent that’s coming up and back.

So we still dont know why? assuming Monter resigned and maybe going back to old school? (Jackson is where he came from correct?). Dalton and Smithville still open and within close prox to each other. crazy how wayne county is turning over.

I think this article is the reason the saying "don't believe everything you read in the papers" came about. This would appear to be the positive spin from the Dalton administration's perspective. Matt Monter would have never been looking for an administrative job if not for the discord between the basketball program and the administration at Dalton.

I tend to agree, while I do think he wanted a principal job, he and the admin were not on the same page

Can't say if it is true, but the word on the street is that Dalton asked Matt to get rid of a particular assistant coach.

you nailed it 187xovr...why would a young coach who has been a part of a state championship, has been building since day 1, has made modest gains in his first 2 yrs that were avg as expected and now as the program is about to take off for the next 4 yrs at least, leave? This roster is loaded grades 9-10-11. I know someone close to the situation and when your AD and principal are making decisions pertaining to teams you should play, about situations inside your locker room and on who should be on your coaching staff and you as head coach are not, it loses it's appeal quickly. I believe this is what caused him to look elsewhere. It's a shame. Fine young coach from a strong coaching tree. With the resume he has it was just a matter of time.

I think the opinion above is a bit biased. Probably a friend of said Coach. I also know someone close to the situation and they tell me a different story about his decisions and about an assistant coach.
At this juncture it’s neither here or there. Monter is moving on and Dalton is too. Whoever gets the job will have some nice talent over the next few years. The players will adjust and move on. Not everyone who’s coached at Jackson is the end all be all.
