    Jerry Mathis already has a title has Assistant Principal. So i assume he can keep his seat on the board of control. And last who gets hired has head coach.

    Your headline is incorrect.  Coach Olive HAS been named AD for 2017-2018 but has NOT been removed from his football coaching assignment.  We have every hope and expectation of a very successful season with Coach Olive at our helm. I made the call.

    Sounds like trouble is brewing in t-town. From whats going around Mathis was shown the door. Long overdue if its true.

    I applaud the decision  on naming Olive as AD. I also thank Coach Mathis for his service as baseball coach, teacher, AD at THS.

     

    As far as the football program for 2017. I hope the best for THS, and have  great respect for Coach Olive, and what he has done over the years. And I agree with all those who praise Olive  as a molder of young men.

     

    However the past two win less seasons in football is not acceptable.  I realize they  were injuries, and probably off the field problems that I am not aware of. But THS was soundly beaten  week after week, even by some of the weaker teams on the schedule.

    If what I was told he should not have been on the Board of Control anyway.  If he is working on a 100 day contract, that is not considered full time.

    Wonder why a 100 day contact? What purpose would that serve?

    Mathis was a good baseball coach, but it was high time for him retire from the AD job. I blame him for the bad hires he has made in selecting basketball coaches. And the overall direction of the sports programs.
