A shoe is about to drop or go back on. I'm not sure how shoe references really work.

Any idea when this will happen?

Why is that?  Was it the right shoe or the left one?

I'm going to say the left shoe. It looks like their next board meeting will be the 13th and they'll hire a football coach at that time. It lists the candidate on the agenda so I don't feel like I'm outing anyone here or breaking any forum rules. I have no doubt BNL has some quality coaches in their middle school and youth programs and I'm sure he will do very well at Eastern Greene.

Eastern Greene Basketball coach, Jon Neill, has resigned.  Eastern has a football coach candidate to vote on at the Monday night board meeting as Coach Dowell has stated.  The candidate has no previous head football coaching background. Fired coach, Travis Wray, is joining former coach Paridaen as an assistant at Evansville North.

First the head football coach and now the head basketball coach is gone?  Eastern Greene sports is taking a couple of steps backwards.  I realize the basketball team has been down lately but the football team was on the rise and doing very well.  Sounds like they are killing the goose that laid the golden eggs.  Too bad the players and the fans are the ones who have to pay for someone else's agenda.

When school boards take an active role in education, that is suppose to be a good thing.  I mean that's why they were created.  However in numerous cases, especially in small schools corporations, the school boards use the power to hire "their" people.  Typically, they don't care about anyone else except themselves.  I have heard stories from a former AD about taking names of coaches to the board but the board says, "No.  We are hiring Mr. Smith. So get on board."  I could go on and on about stories from school boards and principals from first hand accounts but I think all the educators on the GID understand.  Nevertheless, sad state of affairs for the Eastern Greene students and community.

School boards are supposed to focus on policy, not administrative roles.

Board Meeting was conducted last evening and they have hired their guy.   Coach announced it via face-book last night and is really excited about getting the job!  Is that official enough to announce it?

After getting Coach's approval... Roy Bruce will be Eastern Greene's new football coach.   Roy and family are ready to begin their life as Thunderbirds.  Congrats to Coach Bruce as he begins his tenure!

Coach Bruce comes from Bedford North Lawrence where he has been Varsity Wrestling Coach.  Additionally Coach Bruce has worked with both the high school and middle school football programs over the years.   As i stated previously this is a good hire for Eastern.  Coach Bruce will bring the energy and the kids will play hard for him.

 

Again Best Of Luck Coach!

Eastern basketball might take a step forward.

This move had nothing to do with the recent school board proceedings. Should have happened a long time ago.

From my understanding, not much of a football resume , for this coach. But a good coach can coach anything, as the saying goes.

Tongue firmly in cheek, in the words of a notorious poster, “Why didn’t they just contract?”

😳😂😇

i really do try to behave, sometimes I just can’t help it.

As a sectional foe, I hope they get the train back on the track at Eastern Greene.

The new Eastern coach has his work cut out for him.  Last year Eastern had a 36 man roster with 14 seniors.  Nearly all of the key players will be gone.
