Coach Bray resigns at Cookeville

Recommended Posts

 Not sure what happened but something has been brewing for a couple years.  This year has been really bad.   Parents not happy.  Starters quitting the team.  It hasn’t been a good offseason.  Hopefully they can get it turned around soon.

Talk a couple of years ago was that Josh Heard coach at Prescott middle school and teacher at Cookeville high school would be the successor for this job. He was an assistant at Cookeville years ago before he left to coach in GA. He played at Tech. He has been around the program some the last couple years. Now Cookeville high school has a new principal that I assume will be involved in the hiring process. Interested to see who gets this job.

I have heard that all summer.  Even before Coach Bray was let go.   It will be interesting to see how the opening is posted in the TSSAA job listings.

very political job here, better play the right players or you wont last long. 

That may be the major reason that they are not winning state championships.

Or the reason they have more talent walking the halls than on the team. Right around 2300 students a top 10 school in the state size wise if not top 5.

Again if better kids are walking the halls than are on the court, most of the time politics are involved.

This change will surely hurt Upperman teams in the future.  Hopefully no more gifting of an entire team to Upperman in one summer!  But maybe not they should still be able to pick up a few players especially if they offer them starting positions like previously.
