  • heard the pixley was leaving kennett...don't know how true it is but thats what I heard

  • Allegedly Coach Cruce at Hayti has resigned.

    -- Posted by Boogin77 on Mon, Feb 13, 2017, at 12:31 PM
  • Been cruce is leaving for a while

    -- Posted by SouthEspn on Mon, Feb 13, 2017, at 1:19 PM
  • I heard Pixley was leaving too. Hope it's not true!

    -- Posted by InjunJoe on Mon, Feb 13, 2017, at 1:55 PM
  • Both rumors are true. Which job is better taking over the other?

    -- Posted by SEMO_WARRIOR on Mon, Feb 13, 2017, at 3:43 PM
  • Kennetts the better job but the politics in the system there are awful.

  • c-jack is that why Pixley leaving? Hate to hear he's on the move.. potential landing spot?

    -- Posted by waterbottle21 on Mon, Feb 13, 2017, at 7:06 PM
  • crucer article is up

    hayti job is open

    -- Posted by SouthEspn on Tue, Feb 14, 2017, at 8:14 AM
  • I haven't seen any confirmation on Pixley but I do know the small town politics are really bad there if you make the wrong people mad.

    That's a shame if the other Pixley is leaving now. Yeah, they'd be looking for a head football coach but he built that wrestling program from the ground up with Arlen. And that's probably where he'll go. Cape to assist his brother for a couple years until the right head job opens up.

  • To slow the gossip and speculating, Dexter offered Pixley the AD position which is also more money. He must have decided its what he wants. We loved the Pixley's and I don't know of any negatives while they were here. Kennett appreciates him and wish him the best. He seemed to really enjoy his time here and all of the people. He is a class act who is accepting a new opportunity.

    -- Posted by tribe man on Tue, Feb 14, 2017, at 4:13 PM
  • So who is the new guy going to be now that Pixley better dealed us? Will he be coaching at Dexter?

    -- Posted by InjunJoe on Wed, Feb 15, 2017, at 11:47 AM
  • Any lead on our program in Kennett new leader?

    Any updates ?

    -- Posted by bootheelsports on Mon, Feb 27, 2017, at 8:33 AM
  • Pixley will not be coaching at Dexter. He will be far too busy as the new Activities Director which is a broader responsibility than Athletic Director. While coordinating sports he will also oversee stuff like Scholar Bowl, chorus, debate team, etc.

  • Haven't heard anything official but rumor is that Joel Wyatt leaving Malden for Kennett! I repeat no official word on this yet!!

    The following three schools have football coaching vacancy's:

    Chaffee

    Hayti

    Kennett

  • Guy close to Malden athletics told me he is about 95% sure wyatt is headed to kennett

    Very interesting move

    -- Posted by SouthEspn on Thu, Mar 2, 2017, at 1:39 PM
  • Ya pixley was choose over some in house that was way more qualified. But the board there is fixing to be adjusted after the election.

    -- Posted by kid rock on Fri, Mar 3, 2017, at 1:04 PM
  • Done deal from what I heard. Wyatt going to Kennett Kennett has some very good coaches in their program. Including McFerren,Hilburn,New,Vaughn and junior high McCaig, Carr do a great job

    -- Posted by Kennett fan on Fri, Mar 3, 2017, at 9:29 PM
  • Also heard Justin Peden would be the head coach at Malden if Wyatt leaves

    -- Posted by Kennett fan on Fri, Mar 3, 2017, at 9:30 PM
  • *

    Why do people keep going to Kennett ? They've brought in highly named coaches, and nobody have got it done there.

    Would Peden consider going back to Hayti ?

    -- Posted by PoliticalCorrect on Fri, Mar 3, 2017, at 11:02 PM
  • Pixley did a very good job at Kennett in my opinion Coach Wyatt will do a great job as well if the rumors are true Kennett has the athletes and a favorable schedule for a school of its size Im sure Coach Wyatt will be getting a huge pay increase It would be a win win situation for Coach Wyatt and the Kennett football program

    -- Posted by Kennett fan on Sat, Mar 4, 2017, at 7:56 AM
  • Doubt Kennett is a significant pay increase.

    -- Posted by taxpayer parent on Sun, Mar 5, 2017, at 8:32 PM
  • It is a significant raise,Wyatt is going to Kennett .pedan is not the next coach automatically .it will be open and Malden should be an attractive job with the Wyatt leaving the program in good shape. Next years class should be one of the best with most of the big players back from a good team last year.

  • Flanigan is the new head football coach at Chaffee

    Just looked up his 8-Man school. Boy that went bad. Hope he can step it up back at 11-Man

    -- Posted by Bill Shakespeare on Thu, Mar 9, 2017, at 7:33 PM
  • Anyone heard any rumors or have any guesses who might go to Malden?

    -- Posted by Ramfanman on Sun, Mar 12, 2017, at 3:25 PM
  • Any word on the Hayti job ...Any possible candidates?

    -- Posted by SouthEspn on Mon, Mar 13, 2017, at 7:49 AM
  • How much is bleed going to gripe and cry once Kennett "Runs up the score" on SG over the next decade?

    -- Posted by Go.Hard.Cuh on Mon, Mar 13, 2017, at 8:59 AM
  • Heard there is 5 people going hard for the Hayti job.

    -- Posted by SEMO_WARRIOR on Mon, Mar 13, 2017, at 5:54 PM
  • Wyatts out at Malden.

    Feel like we will get Peden or someone who can duplicate Wyatts success.

    Dont see Peden going back to Hayti. 5 ppl going for Hayti? Thought it would be more with all the athletes.

    -- Posted by swampdaddy on Mon, Mar 13, 2017, at 7:43 PM

    The Hayti job maybe someone in house. The Malden job could be someone from outside. I don't expect neither to hire before the end of March.

    -- Posted by PoliticalCorrect on Mon, Mar 13, 2017, at 8:43 PM
  • Hayti job must be in high demand

    -- Posted by grizzliesfan348 on Thu, Mar 16, 2017, at 10:50 AM
  • what about notre dames football coach?

    -- Posted by TheNewsReporter on Thu, Mar 16, 2017, at 11:30 AM
  • Heard trey porter's name thrown out there for the malden job and the hayti job... I thught he was head coach at a school in stl

    -- Posted by SouthEspn on Fri, Mar 17, 2017, at 12:36 PM
  • Porter would be a good fit for Malden.

    -- Posted by Go.Hard.Cuh on Mon, Mar 20, 2017, at 1:23 PM
  • thought he was the head coach in stl? we have everyone coming back next year need to look at all candidates with head coaching experience or a good fit for our kids.

    -- Posted by swampdaddy on Mon, Mar 20, 2017, at 2:08 PM
  • Go.Hard- you weren't a fan of Porter's in the past. Why the change of heart? Porter is busy making a name for himself up North and I think everyone in the boot is just fine with that.

  • It's not like it'd be outrageous to leave the Roosevelt program. Less than 10 wins in 5 years(5 of which came in 2014). In fact both situations should be guarenteed winners for a guy who fancies himself a future college pedigree

    -- Posted by Sammy Langhorne on Mon, Mar 20, 2017, at 5:19 PM
  • Pretty sure Malden will not hire him for head coach

    at this time

    Early April, names will be attached to jobs. Only one I've seen posted was Chaffee, Kennett, and Hayti. I've yet to see anything about a Malden opening.

    Joel Wyatt named new Kennett football coach.

    Hayti and Malden are open.

    -- Posted by bootheelsports on Wed, Mar 22, 2017, at 6:45 PM
  • Just saw the article on Coach Wyatt going to kennett. 69-15 is extremely good regardless of class! Wow! They got the best in the area for sure.

    -- Posted by PimpDaddyTaddy on Wed, Mar 22, 2017, at 8:20 PM

    Is Kennett a better job than Malden. Coaches seem to come and go in Kennett? That community has invested a lot in sports and have stayed in the middle of the pack.

    -- Posted by PoliticalCorrect on Wed, Mar 22, 2017, at 9:03 PM
  • I don't disagree with that but if you're kennett, what coach is most likely to give you consistent amounts of success in football? The guy up the road that went 69-15 and appeared in a state championship and by the way spanked kennett in recent years would be the best hire in my opinion.

  • Besides that, he had a sweet goatee!
