Dumas has an outstanding Superintendent.  He will make the best decision concerning this difficult matter.

They need to get this figured out quickly! The players need some leadership and need closure one way or the other so the team can get back to focusing on the season. Coach Lewis is currently the Interium HC, which blows my mind feel not much thought went into that.

So, is this over yet? Is the coach staying or going?

Holding out right now.  School board delayed vote until 6/6/19 because that apparently would be his last day to file a grievance or something in that nature.

Not 100% sure it is done yet. Was just told by multiple sources Amerson will be taking over this year if Pennington is voted out.

I got a big feeling they are gonna let him go over it after itís all said and done. Hoping Dumas can get going under Amerson and be ready for the season. Dumas is a great team they can contend for a top conference seed for sure.

If that is the case yíall are extremely fortunate. Solid guy that is one of the few coaches I have seen who connects with all kinds of kids and parents. Took our very under athletic kids and turned them into players. Best record we had in years. I am not from there, but from what I know of the situation he is perfect choice to keep it all together. Wish our school would have pushed harder to keep him itís went down hill fast here since he left.

The battle between basketball and football coaches is almost as old as the games themselves. Most basketball coaches want their players all fall long and don't want them on the football field. I have heard basketball coaches call football players lazy and have bad habits. It's mainly because the intensity of the practices are so much different.

Sounds about right. Like most football coaches think basketball coaches are lazy in the spring and never lift weights been hearing that since I played. Guess that argument goes back and forth. Is the Dumas basketball coaches son not getting a lot of D-1 football attention? I saw him play basketball before and he is ok, but far better in football. There has got to be more to the issue, because surely he isnít selfish enough to hurt his own son?

Basketball coach just didnít allow his son to go because of the situation.  Stick to the real issue of what the football coach did.  Letís not start making false accusations and slandering other peopleís character.  He has always cheered for football and helped keep players on the team when they were getting in trouble.  He use to work diligently with Coach Pennington  too keep a star running back on the team a few years ago.  So that statement of  him telling players not to attend football is false

Iím not sure on what exactly happened, but Coach Pennington is in no way involved in the program right now. There is a bunch of coaches and players up there working their butts off, and 3 or 4 of the players arenít showing up. That doesnít seem to make sense. I could under stand if coach Pennington was there but he is not?

That still doesnít make any sense to mention the basketball coach.  If his kid isnít going that his decision but Iím sure he doesnít control what other parents kids do.   I wouldnít want my kid around the program either until it was official that the coach was terminated.

Ya Iím sure he has no pull with other kids not showing up who just so happen to be basketball players lol. Still just donít see how not showing up to work out with your team who is not being led by person in question proves anything, but I guess to each their own opinion. As an African American myself I get being upset, but got to move forward not backwards until situation is handled.

I think they are saying since he appealed it and wants to come back they are letting it be known that they donít want any parts of football until heís officially terminated.  You probably wouldnít understand because what he said didnít bother you

Funny thing is entire team is 1000% behind coach Pennington. One kids parent is only one making all of this into big deal, because her kid has not received recognition that she feels he deserves. This individual is willing to destroy a whole team to get back at a person she dislikes.

This is a classic case of cognitive dissonance folks..... So that justifies his utter ignorance and prejudice? How about be a mature adult and handle tough interactions with parents in a more professional manner instead as the head coach? Any coach or teacher for that matter will tell you the worst aspect of their job is dealing with certain parents. If they can't handle that aspect of the job they won't cut it, and he proved that part of the job he could not handle in a professional manner.

If he sincerely apologized, yes he should be forgiven. Whether or not he can coach is a different discussion. The young men he coached know what kind of man he is Iím sure and if they are behind him, maybe he should be able to stay.

What kind of man he is or at least a piece of the person he is was shown in that text message.... I am not sure if he knows its 2019 yet.... not 1969. Second, how dumb can a person be to send a text message  of that nature knowing it can be saved. I tend to agree with the man being interviewed that he had to have been so dumb he sent that text message to the wrong person on accident. I'd love to know who his intended person was he was trying to send that to cause if it was another coach I feel sorry for the kids at Dumas. Sure doesn't seem like there is a lot going on between that coach's ears from the overall picture of the situation.

As a parent I guess I understand the concern, but I would also ask myself has he done anything to my kid over last 3 years that seems racist, or hurting my child in any way. As a black man with a black son on the team I know I donít feel that way. If anything it is the opposite. Those kids love him because he shows them he cares about them. We have all said something of poor taste at one point or another I just know I personally have no problem with my son playing for him. The 1000 of good things he has done out weighs the one in my book and the majority of people complaining have made plenty of poor statements that I and many others have witnessed they just didnít text it.

From my understanding and reading the rules on transfers it is not possible unless they physically move there. Them physically moving their families there is highly unlikely and those kids will be under a microscope if they try to pull a fast one using a secondary address for athletic purposes and will be turned in quickly. I know there is a volunteer coach that grew up here who trying to get kids to go to a nearby school.

Think so? I donít see that working because Courtney has groomed his son for the role of QB, Harris is an athlete but is most dangerous when you have to gameplan against him every snap.

If he transfers I could see him fitting in at McGehee itís close to Dumas and he could turn McGehee into a dangerous team this season.
