Default Open Job Greenup County High School
Coach Tackett retires.

http://www.dailyindependent.com/spor...471b2489b.html

Some parts of the story below.

When Harold Tackett became Greenup County’s seventh boys basketball coach in six calendar years, he vowed to anyone who’d listen a promise of stability.

Under Tackett’s tutelage, Greenup County went 82-92 with two 63rd District championships and three 16th Region Tournament appearances.

Greenup County will post the position on Thursday. The interview process could begin in about a month or so, he said.

IMO, this is a pretty good job. Should have solid candidates applying.

Never though Tackett did that great of a coaching job. Only won 8 games when they were supposed to be one of the top teams in the region. Awful way to go out.

Agreed. Greenup had a lot of talent and little to show for it during his 6 years.

Would like to see a coach come into Greenup who values defense as much as offense. Greenup has a lot of talent but kids were not in positions to showcase their talent and work as a team. That is going to be the biggest obstacle is teaching teamwork.

Names have been dropped about a Portsmouth Coach and a coach from the Columbus region. Not sure if the administration is looking to wipe the slate clean at GCHS as far as coaching staff goes, but I'd sure like to see someone soon so that this offseason isnt a total loss. Got to get some of the returning players some shooting time because they sure never seen much the last few years, " If anyone in the area knows what Im implying...."
Need a coach who holds all players accountable and can focus on both sides of the game. Anyone know the hire deadline?

I don't know what kind of deadline they are working with. If attaching it to a teaching job (Tackett was PE) they need to post that job which may not be done until May.

I think it would be a great idea for Greenup to use this opportunity to bring a great coach closer to his hometown!!!

Lots of interest from my understanding. More left from last year than what you think, they’ll have to get back to team ball next year and not just one shooter.

Maybe one scorer returns.
Very limited group returning.
It will be a 2-3 year rebuild for the new coach.

Nah, plenty of shooters return. They didn’t have many opportunities to shoot this past season. One man show.

Nelson, Raby, Thomas, Robinson returning. One very good player will return and there are a few of the younger JV players from last season will give some good minutes. All the district teams lost a lot. Lewis Co. will be the team to beat in my opinion. Greenup will be just fine. This will be a great job for someone to step into. Not to mention the incoming talent that is on the way.

I don't know really.

The resume looks really good: but the coach has zero stability, this is a huge red flag for me if I'm hiring a coach.

Appears to be the type that will bolt for another job after 1) a rough year 2) loss of talent 3) more attractive opening.

I would have hired someone who already is rooted there. Greenup Co. basketball needs stability for the long haul. Tackett gave them that in the short term which is what they desperately needed. Had he not burned some bridges this past year, one of his assistants would have gotten it.

Time will tell. I had the opportunity to meet him this evening. He’s young and energetic which is needed in Greenup Co. Personally, I like the fact that he’s not from the area, gives him the opportunity to implement his style and assess the kids’ talent without knowing The Who’s who in Greenup Co.
I too am concerned about him bouncing around a lot however I’m not too familiar with either Breathitt Co or Eminence other than Eminence is a small school so I can understand wanting to take on a bigger program.
I’m anxious to see him in action and to see who he will bring on staff for his assistants, freshman and JV coaches.
