It's hard to figure what some of these committees are thinking and looking for. This goes on at many schools. Not a knock on any of McKinley candidates, just a thought on how many schools make head scratching decisions whether it's hiring or firing.

I'm not real sure why you think this is such head scratching decision.

Not a bad hire but 40 apps then down to these 2 finalists is very surprising

He seems to be a good fit. The school systems are similar and he has a pretty good record and he's been a head coach for awhile and coached in some big games. Maybe one of the Warren posters can give us their opinion on him. For sure I'm disappointed in the Rep for the coverage of this. Hardly any at all. It would be nice to know who got second interviews or who was on the committee, etc. Maybe this will come out in the article when they name him. If he does get the job I'm assuming he was targeted since he's not on the list of 40. I'm not a big fan of targeting other schools coaches at the high school level but I'm really not sure if this was the case or not. We'll see.

Andy Vlajkovich (the Harding coach, soon to be McKinley) is a young guy, unless they hired his very young son to coach lol. I think he'll do well at McKinley, he's a good basketball mind, has experience with both inner city kids (Harding) as well as in the Fed (when he assisted Cardillo at Boardman).

It's a shame Boardman let him get away by not giving him the job when Cardillo stepped down to become an administrator.

The Canton City School District announced today it would recommend Andrew Vlajkovich as the new head basketball coach for McKinley Senior High School. Vlajkovich most recently was the head coach at Warren G. Harding High School where he led his teams to a 105-44 record over six seasons.

Superintendent Adrian E. Allison said Vlajkovich demonstrated a passion to be a part of and add to the the proud and rich tradition of McKinley High School Basketball.

Congrats on the new hire. I'm guessing one day is enough to wait. The honeymoon is over now win McKinley a state title. I'm sure there will be unrealistic expectations put on the new coach from day one by the rabid fans that a still under the illusion that is an elite program.

That jumped out at me too, Raymo. I think we have a pretty good coach who ticks all of the boxes. He's a proven winner, knows his basketball x's and o's will make timely adjustments, and most importantly, he will help our kids achieve both on and off the court.

Time will tell, of course, but heembraces our rich tradition and the expectations that go with it. I look forward to seeing fans coming back to watch a well-coached team at the Fieldhouse that won't embarrass.

Good luck Coach V!

Just curious, but exactly why is CM in for "stormy years" with the new coach?

You're a Euclid fan, so what would YOU know about elite programs?

Now go to your room and take a timeout like a good boy!

You're a great Warren fan, and your ringing endorsement of Coach V is highly encouraging. Thanks Worm02! Good luck to the Raiders going forward!

Great hire. McKinley needs an outside guy and actually he should bring in an entire staff from the outside also. The program needs new blood and no doubt there will be bitterness by locals who didn't get the job or think they should have input on how things should be run. Many fans will be upset also but fans are not equipped to hire coaches despite what they think. Watch the program flourish in a couple of seasons.

It may flourish, but a lot of work to be done. Tradition will not win them games. I kinda get bringing in an outsider, but that guarantees nothing. Maybe he'll do a fine job , but the grass is not always greener on the other side. Good luck to Pups nation !
