    Is he bringing any assistants with him?

    Mance news

    When Mance first arrived in Richlands as an assistant, his plan was to stay one year and then migrate back to Giles County, but as we all know, it didn't work out that way, and Richlands fans are all the more better for that situation. We can have all the plans we want to have, but often plans change and we're glad his did.

    Speculation around town is that Wells will be the new HC along with being the AD. Someone close to the situation said he's projected to stay for at least five years, but Coach Mance only planned to be in the program for a year when he came to town, so I guess we will just have to wait and see. I feel the fan base will back whomever the HC turns out to be, but these fans can be very fickle if the program doesn't live up to expectations. Mance leaves a large footprint, and the fans have become very use to having a good program, almost to the point of being spoiled, so hats off to the new (whoever) HC, wish them the best.

    Thanks for the info, makes perfect sense and I appreciate your knowledge on this matter. You know how it is with all this back and forth, and my how the rumors are flying, but that's not unusual especially given the subject. Patience is a virtue that not a lot of us rabbit fans seem to have in naming a HC for the hometown team.

    I know that rumor has Thad Wells as the new HC at Richlands with only retaining two present assistants, but has there been any official word on this hire, or the two assistants retained. So far I am also hearing that this is all just rumors and no one has been decided on. So any clarity on this would be good.

    How quickly this turned into an Akers thread instead of a Mance and search for replacement thread. Hats off to Thad Wells, wish him and his family well and much success with the new position.

    Know there is a School Board meeting this evening, wonder if a new HC will be decided on during the meeting?

    So if someone took the HC position combined with the AD position, I would imagine that would be a good rate of pay. The work load of the AD would add time, but don't a lot of HC's do both, especially on the high school level?

    Question: If a person takes the HC and the AD position plus teach a class, does he get paid for both the HC and AD position? I know in the past schools had both HC and AD as single positions. Just wondering??

    Been hearing that Wells was offered the HC along with the AD which will enhance his resume for the college level. Also heard that he plans to stay in Richlands for at least five years before moving up to the college level. If all this is true (and really who knows) I wish him and his family the best. Also heard that he plans on keeping three of the Mance assistants and make changes to match his system. Everything we hear is speculation and cannot be counted on until the final decision is made, of course.

    Bluefield might be understandable, but would transferring to Loris really help any player that much? Outside of relocating to the beach area, how would that help him get to the next level, just asking. IMO Webb would be the go to guy for Richlands, and let's face it, probably his best chance to get next level recognition.

    If rumor's hold true, it's not a player, it's an assistant coach. We're probably going to hear a lot of speculation going around, but I can't see a player going to Loris due to all that would involve, I mean you're talking about uprooting an entire family, so no I don't think it would be a player and Webb is staying put. Changes will come throughout life, and those who learn to look to the future and not live in the past, will be the victor's. Richlands has had a good run, but that doesn't mean we have to close the lid on the coffin just yet, could be an ever better run coming. IMO

    I think history shows that all the assistants should receive credit along with Mance, and he has spoken highly of them every year. Never did hear Mance say the success the Blues had was all because of him. Snake was a great defensive coach as Graham can attest to, and when he left Richlands, it changed the defense and really showed.

    Dennis Palmer would probably be a good fit, no doubt, but he left Richlands for a reason. I don't know what the reason was, but he's doing pretty good at Graham, so I doubt if he would return.

    I agree with the defense being strong. If I remember correctly the last play of the 2006 championship was a Blues interception, not a TD pass. The old saying defense wins championships held true that day. That truly was a game to remember. I think the spread will be in action for a couple more years, can't see that changing right away, but with a new coach with another system, things might change.
