Gary Rankin & George Quarles

76 posts in this topic

Coach Gary Rankin

 

396-73 (Overall Record): going for #397 next week

99-20 (Playoff Record): going for #100 next week

11 (State Championships): going for #12 next week

 

 

Coach George Quarles

 

250-16 (Overall Record)

79-7 (Playoff Record)

11 (State Championships)

 

 

First off let me begin by saying these are two of the best, if not the very best, football coaches to ever walk a sideline on a Friday night here in the state of Tennessee.

 

Next week Alcoa plays in the Class 3A State Championship Game and will be a decisive favorite. If the Tornadoes win that game then Coach Rankin wins his 12th State Championship as a head coach which would put him alone at #1 all-time. It would also be his 100th career playoff victory and make him the only coach in the history of the state to reach that milestone. He would be just 3 victories shy of 400 heading into 2017.

 

Maryville ended another terrific season last night in the state semifinals. Coach Quarles winning percentage is second to none. Last week he won his 250th career game as the Rebels head coach. He has 11 total State Championship wins to go along with those wins.

 

At the end of the weekend next week Coach Rankin will lead Coach Quarles on the overall wins list by 147 victories. Alcoa's road to State Championships is much easier than is Maryville's being in 3A rather than 6A. That's a gap that may only continue to widen as long as Gary Rankin chooses to coach football at Alcoa High School.

 

Do you think that Coach Quarles will ever pass Coach Rankin and become the state's all time winningest coach?

 

147 wins = 14.7 wins per year for 10 years

147 wins = 12.25 wins per year for 12 years

147 wins = 9.8 wins per year for 15 years

 

In case you're wondering in 18 years as head coach at Maryville High School the overall win total of 250 for George Quarles comes out at approximately 13.9 victories per year. It's almost impossible to predict that a school, even Maryville, can maintain a run of dominance to that great of a degree (especially playing in the state's largest classification).

What's the age difference between these two coaches? Does GQ continue to coach after Rankin has retired? If so then he has a very good shot at catching him. GQ has continued to field teams that are technically sound. Looking from the outside it appears as if he doesn't compromise discipline for talent. Each player has to play within the program rather than the program adjusting to the player.

GQ is around 48-50. Rankin is early 60s.

Rankin is way more egotistical than George, so he'll coach longer just to pad his numbers so they can't be caught. I don't see GQ caring about any of that

I think you will see coach Rankin retire soon. Coach Q will be around for a while and I think at some point will surpass Coach Rankin in wins and titles. Records are made to be broken. Just my thoughts on this subject, best wishes to both of these great coaches!

Hope he stays away from my house

You better hope to God he does. You know if he doesn't you will be assigned a permanent place on your living room couch. Hope you have a nice comfy one.
