Christian Brother coach search

I can't remember his name, but I heard that the guy that retired from Germantown HS a couple of years ago was taking it over for a few years.  They said he was only 60 but could draw a pension and then coach private school.  I think GP West did that too.

No. The former coach you are talking about is Tony Bradley. He now lives in Arkansas, about 2 hours from Memphis. He is not coming back.

What about CBHS assistant coach John Michael Simpson or CBHS alum and current Arlington head coach Jonathan Simpson?

I heard that John Michael Simpson is the grandson of FRHS current head coach Pat Simpson.  JM will become the head coach in 2018 when Coach Pat becomes the Ryan AD at Ryan.

I haven't heard anything about Jonathan Simpson being in the mix. My money says he will be back at Arlington next season. Also, JM Simpson is Pat's nephew. His dad Frank is the coach at MBA.

What's the story here?  Anything official?  Have they narrowed down their national search at least?
