    If they live in the city a move to the county in Bradley bus zone should get him eligible.

    Cummings to Halls?

    Probably so. Hope he does well there. Interesting to me that another poster referenced Halls being glad the previous guy was gone. The Cleveland kids loved him and respected him while he was here. Just goes to show that finding the right “fit” is important and that a record at another school is not an indication of success at a new school.

    His record at CHS was 21-21. 0-4 vs Bradley, 2-2 against Walker Valley and managed to wreck one of the most talented group of middle schoolers to come through the program in addition to dressing 45 kids this year. His record at Cleveland speaks for itself and that is all Cleveland folks give a darn about.

    I think he left on his own but it had been a rough 2-3 years I think. He said as much to both the Chattanooga and Cleveland papers. Hope he does well at Halls. Cleveland job on paper is great but the County is open enrollment and if you start losing kids from the Cleveland Middle School it’s hard to get the train back on the right track. Bradley is the “cool” program right now because they have a coach the kids respect and play hard for and the program is winning. They better keep Coach Floyd at all cost because he’s a good one. Whomever gets the Cleveland job will have to make his first 10 priorities keeping CMS kids.

    I doubt it’s him. I think they will go younger. Would be fine though.

    Kids liked and respected him. They liked and respected Bosken too. I must say I think Adam Renshaw is deserving too. He’s a good man and solid coach. Probably should have gotten it last time. I personally think a recent former qb would be a great hire too but he would be awfully young. Will be an interesting process. Cleveland is a great job if you can keep Middle Schoolers headed to Cleveland High. Gonna take a couple years to right the ship.

    Geez Foose tell us how you really feel!!! Hope they get the hire right this time.

    Cummings didn’t run the veer for the last two years. They were straight up spread. Discipline was also not a problem under Crawford. The real exodus of players came in year 3 and 4 at both the high school and middle school. The failure to discipline players was a real problem the last 4 years.

    No one affiliated with the program would say otherwise. Sad day when he left.

    Cummings to Halls?

    Don’t disagree. They have a valuable resource. Would be a shame to not use it but I think they have chosen not to at least 2 out of the last 3 hires if not all 3. Water under the bridge but they lost a gem of a coach and man that would have had the program at a very high level. IMO Brown, Fant and Bosken in no particular order would be good hires. I know the kids liked and respected Bosken and Brown. Obviously Bosken has taken the Boyd job but the kids loved him. Had he stayed, the roster would have looked different this year I believe.

    He should do fine at Halls. Dropping down to 5A will help. It’s a good day for a lot of the Cleveland football community as Well as Coach Cummings and his folks too I would imagine. It was a bad fit for both from the get go it seemed. Maybe Fooseball can get the administration to lean on his former coach this time round to help find the best fit for CHS. It will take 2-3 years to get things headed in the right direction.

    Did you work for him when he vandalized his own field house and would have been willing to let South Pitt students be prosecuted had any been arrested by mistake?
