The problem is the "state takeover" of the school system and the negative impact it has had on sports in general. A lot of qualified people have been scared off and the state tends to want to hire people for these positions who are already in the school system. John Noble would be the clear cut choice if he applied, but I don't see him wanting the job at this time. Whenever the state is no longer in power of the school system, I think everyone will see drastic improvements in all high school sports.
I think Powell County and Estill County are better jobs without a doubt. Leslie County and Wolfe County IMO are also.

As far as all "other" aspects go. You should walk the halls at BHS, then go to Hazard, KCC, LCC, Powell or Estill and observe. The culture and atmosphere is night and day. No way anyone would uproot their child from a good school system and force them to go to BHS just so they could coach a sport, for any amount of money. Previous supt didn't even bring his child, and that position is the highest paid job in the district.
