I would expect some movement on some jobs here in the next two weeks. Weddington stayed in house with their hire which was a smart move.

Jason Seidel is leaving Hickory Ridge for Blythewood, SC outside of Columbia SC. Great opportunity for him! Hickory Ridge is now open.

Per C Jemal Horton's article, Hickory Ridge will move pretty quickly to fill the spot. Number of good coordinators are interested, wouldnt be surprised to see a few HC's also.

From what I have heard...but cannot confirm...Hickory Ridges coach will almost double his salary by leaving for SC. That is pretty shocking. Don't see how we can keep good coaches if SC schools pay so much better.

You're accurate sstarrx3, and that is a well known deal. The exodus to SC, and even GA in some cases, will continue. There doesn't appear to be anything coming down the line here in NC to stop it from happening. There are a few places in NC that can pay pretty well - Mooresville being one of them, so when those jobs come open a lot of people have interest.

Here's a general question to ask: how much does pay (or there lack of) effect coaches moving from one school to another within NC? I fully understand the double dipping aspect but I'm more curious about movement within the state (i.e. a head coach leaves for another head coaching job in the state).

I think we will find that more coaches move for a myriad reasons, including pay. Factors would include family, respect, support, and opportunity.

Pay is important like any other job of course, but support I think means a good bit. To rank those things you listed:

Pay
Support
Family
Opportunity
Respect

Of course it's different I think for coaches in different stages of their careers too. Some may not care as much about pay as much about their legacy and the opportunity to win big in a good situation.

Hearing that Hopewell has found their Head Coach. Also that Harding Coach Sam Greiner has interviewed for multiple jobs and mostly likely will not be back at Harding.

I think Hopewell made a smart move. Get a good staff around him and give him some time.

Sam has more than earned the right to explore his options man. He's an awesome guy, great coach, and any program would be lucky to have him.

Mooresville coach should be announced next week. Does not appear to be a local candidate, but he has won big.

Rumors are rumors until they are confirmed guys, just keep that in mind. But if Sam does leave for HR, he should get a lot more support for sure, and that makes life easier.

No idea Twin. I would hope so, but I'm sure if Sam leaves a lot of people will be in his ear naturally.

You beat me to it haha. I like the choice. It’s obviously not the high profile guy I think many expected, but based on what I’ve seen watching their games— he seems to have a pretty creative mind. I look forward to seeing what he does here, hopefully can provide some stability here.

Wells offense is unique, if you watch the video I listed above. Reading some of his stuff on Twitter accounts, he definitely does not mind thinking outside of the box. 31 years old, based on those articles it seems like he plans on being here for a while which is good for Mooresville.

I wonder what some of the other big names involved with this job think of this hire. There were other people involved who I thought would have been just a good, if not better, fit for this position. Some of those big names did not even make it to the finalist level, which was interesting.

From what I had heard Coach Wells really really impressed during his interviews. I’m not sure what exactly his message was but whatever it was really opened up some eyes apparently. I guess we will really learn more about that tonight when they announce the hire publicly.

I imagine that he probably said he had no intentions on leaving soon, which would offer us some stability. That’s something I know was very high up on Mooresville’s checklist this time around

Lake Norman has officially announced their choice as the new head coach, Coach Oliphant from Mooresville. He was our DC and one of the top young coaches in our area in my opinion

The last time the Harding job opened they received over 60 applicants, which surprised people when I told them that. I would expect the numbers to be higher this time around. I'm expecting to see a number of coordinators put in for it, maybe some younger coaches that want to get into CMS.

I don't think it's been listed as open officially yet EME, but it was rumored to be at some point this offseason. I may have missed it, but I don't think it's listed. I checked two places and it's not listed as open right now. Most likely people are interested IF it does become open though.
