Is there no talent coming up or did he leave for other reasons?

I don't know which is more impressive...

Des Arc having interest in that job with a less than $1,000 basketball stipend, or the fact that the last 2 coaches have combined for 4 wins, yet still landed seemingly better jobs. That's no slight to those guys. I don't know either, but I've heard that Moss can coach, so good for him.

It is hard to keep a good basketball coach at a school that puts so much into football.

I reckon des arc is not in much of a hurry to hire someone, but yet the powers that be wonder why our basketball program sucks. seems pretty self explanatory to me.

It's a solid landing spot for young coaches ready to get to work, but it is impossible to compete with neighboring schools just based on pay. It is hard to keep coaches, especially quality coaches for too long there

it will be at least until the next school board meeting, that's when they plan to hire a principle first.

I am not aware of any law that would exclude a School Board from hiring only one position at a time.  The Des Arc School Bord, based on principle, may want the new Principal to have the opportunity to hire their own staff.

So let me get this straight.....the next board meeting is June 24 which they will hopefully recommend a new principal, then that principal will start interviews over for a new coach? If that is the case then it will be late July for the next meeting (unless they hold a special emergency meeting) to recommend a new coach. Boys will have missed any chance for summer camps.
I heard that they actually had offered someone already but again all goes back to the new principal approving.

I do know as of 12:15 on may 31 2019, your last statement is not true. it may possibly become true at about 130 today.

First job, kinda like the last 2 coaches we had. But pretty sure he will stick around more than one season.
