    Not sure Brad moves. He is coach at Southside now and loves the facilities at that new school. He has one more year of playing only a junior varsity schedule. Year after that and the Sharks play a normal varsity schedule. Personally, I think he stays where he is. He is starting to get a few years in the public school system and health insurance availability may be better there than at a private school. As far as Byron at LSU-E goes, I suspect he will be successful. Wonder if it is a spot we can send players we like but are not ready for college either academically or physically. He is on the RCAF board and I think he gets along with Coach Marlin.

    He already coached here under Robert Lee. He did not like all the travel.

    He had a young family back then. All of his children are older now, but he will need some time to get his system in place at LSU-E and build a resume.

    That is true. Sometimes I forget how quickly time passes.

    Doesn't have to be a "bad" guy to do it. How can you dispute that its been a part of their program for some time now?

    The joke I heard after this news broke was how Starks was going to recruit on a limited budget now.
