Volleyball Rumors

Wow! Big win for K2 in the coaching wars. BB wasnt he the club coach of Catholics top young player? Doesn't he coach club with this player's mom? So much for a "search."

Update on Bearden...2 applications in only.  One a young, enthusiastic club coach, the other a former coach at a very small college.  A little birdy did whisper in my ear that a certain private school coach would be willing to throw his name in and the person it is would be AWESOME for the program.

Zac?  Has a last name I can't pronounce.  Coaches club at K2 and coached as an Asst. for one year at Maryville College. Very few people applied I heard. Only pays $1500. Too bad.

Zach Forgani. Another school goes K2. With Webb, Catholic and Bearden now in the fold the Knoxville volleyball market, and parents, have spoken. Philly, surely this wasn't the coach you were talking about. It will be interesting to see how Zach handles this. I like him, but I agree with HA, 1500 doesn't seem like much. This was not a big name hire? Zach, like Brent, could have used a little more seasoning, or mentoring under a more experienced coach. I realize that club parents are weighing in, but this one surprised me.

Zach is a nice guy, but not experienced enough. He's only been an assistant coach at k2 for level 2 teams. We had him, he is fun, but wants to be friends with the girls more than a coach. Hopefully that will change if he is put in a head coaching position. I wouldn't expect a big season from Bearden unfortunately.  Btw..Zach may be k2 but the assistant is KVA. A nice mix for all.

K truth, more like no one wanted the job than parents have spoken. Literally, no one applied. Zac may end up being good and I hope he is for Bearden sake. But this has nothing to do with getting k2 coaches in high school positions. Sorry.

Philly, you seemed to have insight into this job. Was this your hire?

 

Angle, I agree. Zach was not a placed coach. Dave must have destroyed a program that could have been a powerhouse. It must have really been bad.

Sorry. Have a lot going on right now with travel volleyball and work. Here is the The Bearden story. There were 4 applications put in. There were a lot of others interested but too afraid to throw their name in the hat. They didn't like how the old coach left the team and thought it would be a tough job to bring back to good status. One person picked the coach. I think Zack will do a great job and the help of his assistant will be perfect. Dave had nothing what so ever to do with this pick. They didn't even ask his opinion.

 

ScottRoss...Post #67 asks you a question. You never responded. Why not? You brought up the idea and then when someone asks you about it you go silent. Kind of funny.

I have a question for all of you volleyball experts. I'm obviously a basketball guy but was curious to see your responses. I've noticed basketball numbers shrinking for the girls. We had to disband our JV program at Catholic because we only had 3 freshman tryout. It seems like there are a lot of good athletes playing volleyball, soccer, and cheering.

 

Does club volleyball totally preclude girls from playing basketball? I understand it for the elite type players but what about the kids getting limited playing time or playing on a "second" team. What per centage of these kids playing club are going on to play in college? If the offerings are mainly at the D2, D3 or NAIA level wouldn't these girls who are good athletes increase their opportunities by playing basketball also?
