Straughn looking for a new coach as Chris Wilson heading to Mary G. Montgomery.

Escambia County High School in Atmore is supposed to name a coach tonight

http://www.atmoreadvance.com/2017/02/22/coach-selected/

Last I heard in East Brewton, W.S. Neal was SUPPOSED to have a new coach picked by the same board meeting tonight as ECHS (both are county schools in Escambia County) but I have not heard anything on the WSN job.

http://highschoolsports.al.com/news/article/-237828153666013823/boaz-football-coach-eric-whaley-steps-down-after-cancer-returns/


Boaz football coach Eric Whaley stepped down last week following a return of the cancer he has been battling the past two years.

David, the article says he missed the 2015 season while undergoing treatment for an Askin's tumor. He's listed as the coach for that year on the site.

I seem to remember discussing this when he returned last season, it must have been by e-mail because I can't find it in the forums, and because they didn't name a interim coach and had a committee he was still HC. I may be misremembering though. Here's the article for his first leave.

I had looked up the articles on their games for that season, trying to find a mention of a head coach, but didn't think to look up an article mentioning his actual absence for the year. Saying his head coaching duties will be split between those two people are basically naming them as head coach, I believe. I have no recollection of any discussion of this before, either. I've seen coaches, like in basketball, be made to sit a game or two, and I believe the games still count on their record. But this is a whole season, and if the 'head coach' isn't physically there for the whole year, then I can't see how the results would be credited to him.

My thought is to show him as the head coach unless someone from the school tells us otherwise. In the scheme of everything we do it will matter very little except to the fans of Boaz in the future. If he were a coach that had won several hundred games it would be a different matter all together.

No offense intended to the program or the coach but I think he held the title of head coach in 2015 even if he was not on the sidelines.

One thing I have learned around here is that at times there is no clear and definite answer to every question. Nor does there need to be an answer every time. Every now and then we need to go with what fits best.

I have added a comment on Boaz's timeline on their page to signify that "Head Coach Eric Whaley missed season with cancer treatments." Hopefully this will give fans in the future a heads up on the matter.

But I am still open to suggestions.
