Word on the street is that after a miscommunication with St. Frances in Baltimore, former DeMatha DC will now be coaching at St. John’s. 

Anyone else hearing this?

Scapegoat for what? Loyalty? What are you talking about?

Worst season in years and both coordinators are run off? And after close to 40 years as a player and a coach at DMatha and he gets fired? I think it's obvious what I'm talking about.

Both coordinators were run off? Huh, that’s strange. I thought the OC was still on staff in another position, no? Deno was fired? That’s news to me. The only thing that’s obvious is you don’t know much. But yea, keep running your mouth after 1 championship in several decades. It’s a great look for you. 

Back to the real world for a bit...News coming out of south Florida is DeMatha vs St. Thomas Aquinas on ESPN down there to start the season.

You can spin it however you want but I know this...after a 6-5 season in which the Stags lost four league games (two to SJC) there are new coordinators at DeMatha...and Deno (who has spent close to 40 years at DeMatha as a player and coach) is now on the staff at SJC. Was he fired or did choose that path? You do the math, you're a smart guy.

So you decided to take the Real Housewives route with this one and let your imagination run wild. Great plan. 

I don’t need to do any math. I know exactly what happened. Nice try with the over dramatics, but you’re way off. 

Brooks is the most decorated head coach in this area by a landslide. You don’t get there at 33 years old by placing blame. Everyone at DM knows what happened last season. It had nothing to do with either coordinator.

Then why was Deno told by Brooks that he was no longer going to be the d-coordinator? And why is Deno now officially coaching at St. John's?

Thanks for confirming the fact that you have absolutely no clue what you’re talking about.

Please explain...where am I mistaken? Or is it super-secret for DeMatha eyes only info?

Football Championships since 1960.  Here you go silverbullet, here are the results over "several decades" for Metro Confrence and WCAC.

I admit 1 in the last 3 decades is nothing to brag abount and hopeful that will change going forward. Have a nice day, bless your heart!

So what about the current DC - the former coach who was there with Joe Patterson - I think Gallospe

He is still the d-coordinator. Deno is the linebackers coach.

Big Joe Cas came in as OC until they found a home for little Joe Patterson.  Expect the promotion to DC next year.

Is that what they told Coach G?  NY Joe and wannabe Jerry Jones AD will not have it.  They disrespected Coach G by bringing in DM DC to coach LBs - yeah right, how long will that last.   I can’t count the 2016, 2017, or 2018 season as a NY Joe team.  

Joe P, Coach G, and Coach Hall (now at SFA) recruited those kids for the past 4 years &  NY Joe benefited.  Remember Joe Gruden won with Tony Dungee players.  But, all dirt finds a way to be cleaned out - Dungee won a SB, Joe P is coaching in sunny Florida, Coach Hall recruits for a National top Rank team and #1 in DMV and Coach G will have his day - but not at SJC as long as NY Joe and fake Jerry Jones are there.

G would be the clear cut choice if Cas was making a move. Longest tenured coach there and a teacher at the school. But... I C’mon man. It will snow in July before SJC will hire a minority in any of the big time sports there. Sorry to say that but call a spade a spade. Ask Nick Jones Spaulding’s head bball coach.

He is not the longest tenured coach at SJC...Pat Ward has been coaching there for twenty years ( and is also a teacher/ass't AD and an alum)...Coach G for 15. But don't let the facts get in the way of your BS.

Not so fast my friend. Ward was a teacher, coach, and AD at the Heights School for years. He just recently became full time staff at SJC in 2009-10ish. But that wasn’t the point of the post. An A for effort though

I did not say he was full-time at SJC the whole twenty years but he started coaching at SJC while still teaching at the Heights. He coached several years with Coach Ricca who left in 2001...Coach G was hired by Coach Patterson close to five years after Coach Ward started coaching at SJC. I think I deserve an A+ for doing my research.

Coach G is not being groomed for the HC job.  If so, how much trust will the administration have with a guy they had to train (groom) for 20 years to coach HS ball.   C’mon man - he’s ________

Coach G isn't going anywhere.  When Billy Goodman (GC DC under Milloy) came to SJC last year,  all the same rumors were floating then.

Big joe isn't gonna go anywhere either, as he fell into a bucket of butter coming to SJC.  He is perfect for the new SJC process of bringing in outside talent.

SJC is doing it better than anyone else.  I don't agree with it, but they didn't invent it.  Dematha was always the best at it for years.  GC was doing it when they had Dancel's money, but the change to admin put the end to that. 

WCAC has evolved my friends beyond what we experienced as players. A local kid has much less chance of working his way to the top here.  Get use to it.

BTW - SJC (Brian) attempted to let coach G go when the cut coach P, but players stopped it.
