All to often people speak without thinking. Coaches come and go at the whim of upset parents and fans who have no idea what goes on behind the scenes. I agree with the answer if you are not doing something positive to fix the problem then you are a part of it. Bashing folks has never been a good solution. I have coached now for 13 years after a 20 year Navy career. It amazes me at how quickly people in sports will turn ugly and throw folks under the bus. I don't know who you are ebass or care, but I do know you need to check your value system. Coaches roll with the punches. Sometimes we leave because we upset a V.I.P, sometimes we just don't have the talent to win and that is our job to win, sometimes we just want a change of scenery. I have coached a lot of different sports in a lot of different towns and for the most part I love it. The six-man community is probably one of the best places to be unless you end up in a place where everybody on the sidelines thinks they can do your job better. I never lost a game in the bleachers. It is a lot different when you are on the sidelines. EBASS don't get your feelings hurt, but try and hear what your preaching. It is negative and has no place outside your community. You may feel that way, but do not speak for every kid. If your kids are not respecting the coach that may be a reflection at home. My mother always taught us to respect our coaches and teachers and that has served me well in life. It is a lesson more folks need today more than ever. I hope Cranfills Gap finds the right coach, but more importantly I hope you understand winning is fun, but character and integrity are life lessons. I know a lot of coaches that don't always win, but they are great people. As I get older I am more grateful than ever that my coaches and teachers are the folks I respect the most. They opened up so many doors for me. I did not always like the running and lifting and long hours of practice, but I always knew they were doing it to make me a better person. That is the real essence of coaching. Good luck to your coach. He is probably going to a better place since you won't be there.
