BTW, Carol City coaching changes - new HC job for Ice Harris

Recommended Posts

Prominent South Florida high school coaches Tim “Ice” Harris and Benedict Hyppolite will join the upstart Florida Memorial University football staff, sources told FootballScoop on Sunday.

It was not known as of publishing time what roles the two will have on the FMU staff. 

From FS: "Florida Memorial announced in late May it will re-launch its football program to begin play in the fall of 2020. An HBCU based in Miami Gardens, Florida Memorial played football from 1927 through 1958. The school presently enrolls roughly 1,800 undergraduates and competes in NAIA."

Darn, I am reasonably familiar with Miami Gardens and was not aware of this college. For Harris and Hyppolite to leave BTW and CC this close to the start of the season has got to be very negative for the two programs. 

And that blew up two of my interviews at media day... I found out Saturday morning that both were leaving for Florida Memorial. Florida Memorial can trace its roots back to St. Augustine when the campus was located near what is now present-day West King Street and Holmes Blvd.

BTW has an ad for a head coach up on the FHSAA web site, but at this point you have to just promote from within for at least this season right? Makes no sense to hire a new coach the week of kickoff classics.

If the kids have had at least one practice with the team since July 31st, aren't they not allowed to transfer at this point? It sucks for the kids. I'd agree that they'd have to promote from within at this point.

Yeah like coach said, once you practice for the first time with a team, you can't play for that same sport for another school this fall. The kids have to do what most used to do, which is just make the best of a situation.

Some places require ads be placed onto job boards even if they eventually will hire from within. Some places even require positions to be advertised yearly even if it's almost certain the current head coach will be the most qualified "applicant".

I don't think this is a true statement,  Josh and I had a long conversation on that subject recently.

Well unless something changed recently, I was coaching the last 3 seasons down in Miami-Dade and my head coach told me that a player can work out at whatever school he wants to during the summer. But once he participates in a practice with a team, that's it.

Here's an excerpt from an FHSAA notice of transfer form: 

"A student who changes schools after initially attending another school is subject to Bylaw 9.3 Transfer Regulations. The student may be ineligible for the remainder of the sport season during which the transfer occurs. However, Bylaw 9.3.2.1 allows the student to transfer to another school prior to the first day of practice in a sport in which the student wishes to participate and maintain his/her eligibility, provided the public school board or private school policies allow the student to transfer and maintain eligibility (reference FS 1006.20)."

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
