The Menendez thing is probably legit. This could explain why they have the position open:

Taking over as AD, probably just trucked through this season and waited until the end of the year to put out an ad.

FootballScoop has a ton today:

Port St. Joe (FL): Per source, head coach John Palmer will not return.

Liberty (FL): Per source, head coach Doug Gabriel has been let go.

Ridgewood (FL): With the school eliminating all sports to transition into a technical school, head coach Jay Fulmer will no longer lead the football program.

Land O’Lakes (FL): Brian Wachtel will not return as head coach, per source.

Check the source on PSJ.  Palmer looked pretty good when I talked to him yesterday.  Unless he is the source,  I wouldn't count him out.

And the FlaHSFootball Twitter also reported the same thing the same day.

I shared that on the board a couple of weeks ago.  Palmer has been at practice and upstairs during the last game and in the locker room pregame and at the half.  Josh Dailey is performing HC duties and running day to day operations but Palmer is taking a bigger part in things over the last week and a half.  I don't know what next year holds but PSJ will have about 20 seniors.  I do know that after the news story broke that there were multiple coaches from successful high schools and some D1 college assistants that made contact with the school about the job.  I do know that the job is not open at this time and the school is not actively seeking a replacement for Palmer.  Ideally everyone associated with PSJ would like to see Coach Palmer get a clean bill of health and return to his duties.

Isn't Windermere just a year old? Wonder what happened there

tough to win there with former apopka admin and ad. I would think expectations are real high, but they didn't get west orange best kids, nor will they.  3classes, no,seniors and they are 7a, in a growing like a weed area.  Will surpass capacity in 2 to 3 years.

I figured they would struggle this season, but as a head coach, if you take that job, it's definitely more than a one-year project. Unless something else amazing comes along for that coach. Idk the situation, just thinking out loud.

    • dillard fans just like dillard team. unprepared lol. mannn You never go nowhere without yo umbrella in south florida main man. either for the sun or the rain you gone need it
    • As for tonight, No lost big or small will EVER run me into hiding ; that’s not even my type of motion.    as for MIAMI central , they’re EXACTLY who the world knew they were DOMINANT. They’re ranked #4 in the nation & by the end of this year probably #1 in the nation. As for my panthers, they’re are very good public school wise in the state of Florida. But anything nationally they’re absolutely not there yet.    THE GAME: It was a very tight & competitive first half , defensively Dillard held its own against one of if NOT THE best teams in the nation, & was only down 14-7 going into halftime.    MISTAKES: while Dillard didn’t throw any interceptions tonight, they made countless of other mistakes the completely shots themselves in the foot.    1st & Goal: down 14-7 with about 3 min left to go in the half Dillard made it all the way to the rockets 5 yard line, only to get hit with a torrential down pour as they tried to punch it in.    watching my panthers for so many years, for some reason they always struggle with ball security especially in wet weather, so as they were going to punch it in I said loudly “HOLD ON TO THE BALL, DONT TURN IT OVER” & what did they do as soon as I said that, fumbled the ball, turned it over while missing a golden opportunity on the road.    2nd HALF: In the second half that’s where the rockets are their best & tonight Dillard was at their worst. With the rain pouring down & the offense unable to sustain any types of drives. The defense looked completely worn out mentally & physically vs the monster front of the rockets. & from then on the game was blowed open.    3rd Downs: on about 5 diff occasions Dillard as a defense had the rockets right where they wanted them 3rd and long & not only Did dillards defense allow the rockets to convert each time, they allowed the rockets to get the yards to gain plus 20+ extra yards on top of it each time. Which was a momentum kill EACH TIME & something you cannot do against a team like MIAMI central who will make you pay!!    OFFENSIVELY: outside of that one touchdown and the fumble at the goal line, Dillards offense was completely non existent credit to the rockets defense first off & secondly our offense just appears to be TO DAM VANILLA no structure, no life! OVERALL - dillard can either get better from this ass whoopin & be ready for STA in 2 weeks @ Home or suffer another “L” , but when it’s all said and done YES we battled for a half, but a game is NEVER won in a half & when you talk about getting RESPECT you can or will never get it if you fail to show up on the winning side in EVERY “BIG GAME” you have.    CONGRATS ROCKETS once again you guys showed the world why you’re who you’re. We hung with you for a half , but like always when it was time to blast off y’all did just that.    with that said I got completely and utterly soaked tonight, staying until the end with no umbrella & not bailing on my team no matter the way we lost. So I’m gonna go shower and lay my ass down. #StillDillardNationOverHere. 
    • I never said Dillard would beat chaminade and central , find that post and make me stand on that statement. Never said it.
