Where do they go from here?

What is the future of the program looking like?

Any Tellico folks on here or anyone close to the program have any info? 

Good luck to the Bears!One of my favorite away games!

Not sure where we can go from here. No teaching spots open to bring in a new coach. AD, Principal keeps, players, parents and community in the dark. Says coaching search does not concern them. Did not want news of Mullinax resigning to get out yet. They might have to look through some of those pesky resumes and applications or even worse take the time to interview someone.  Should have had a good group of seniors next year, but due to attrition, big linemen not playing every year, and players just being brow beat down for 3 years. Not alot of excitement for next year eitheir. Also losing #5 to Sequoyah hurt alot last year, we couldnt get him on the field but he had 1000 yards rushing and 100 tackles for them this year though. Would have love to see LB tandem of home and #7 or him in the backfield with the #'s 1, 4, 32. Also there are rumors of Roy's goat being seen around the Mountains of Tellico.

I have heard about the goat getting loose and heading your way.

I don't know much about the community and the support.  Tellico seems like a nice small community.  Any issues not readily seen by someone not from the area?

Support for youth and middle school programs is great, high school could be also. Alot of people put out by former coaches attitudes, players pitted against each other by there being different rules for different kids, some not held accountable on and off field as others are, alot of kids saying football not fun anymore. Next years senior class could have been a special one.

I doubt Tellico will ever find any coach as successful as Coach Mullinax was during his time there.  He battled cancer and had too many players who had personal issues or were just soft.  He admitted he was very disappointed with this season, thinking they'd do better than they did.
