Coach James resigns at Pulaski

Recommended Posts

 

My first five phone calls would be:

1. Stephen Magenbauer (You'd be crazy not to ask)
2. Jeff Woody
3. Mark Dixon
4. Burt Torrence
5. Kevin Clifford

There's 11 state championships between them, all with at least one as a head coach.

The truth is, Dixon all but took the head coaching job at Monticello High School in Charlottesville back in December before his wife changed his mind for him.  Pulaski isn't very far of a drive from Galax and Mrs. Dixon can remain close to her children at Virginia Tech. 

Not an inevitability but something that makes a lot of sense on several levels.

Just heard James took a teaching job at george wythe

Southwest Times article mentions that.  What's the over/under on "Roon Nation" screaming for James to replace Harner?

Another name to consider is Doug Smith at Appomattox County. He has built a juggernaut down there, winning 4 titles in the past 5 years. He should be on any AD's short list. I think the most realistic choices would be: 1. Mark Dixon 2. Burt Torrence 3. Kevin Clifford

I know Kevin pretty well.  I don't see him leaving Glenvar.  His family is deeply rooted in the Salem/south Roanoke area. 

But if I'm an AD, I'm still reaching out to him.

Pulaski is only 45 minutes down the road. If he put in for the Fleming job, surely he would be interested

Fleming is 5 minutes from his house. Pulaski is an hour plus.

Agreed.  Dixon could make that program into a power in quick order, and the fit makes sense.

probably not this year but next i would say. has to be uncomfortable having another coach teaching with you.
