Curley Football Position???

71 posts in this topic

I read this article and posted it on another thread.  I think it is appropriate on this thread.  One third of the county is turning over, that is a lot of turnover.  It used to be that high school coaches lasted for years at the school.  I thought this had some interesting comments.

Rock Solid LOL Embardino...come on next thing you will tell me is Phil D'Adamo should have gotten the team....Last time i checked all those guys rolled out with Murph the first time he quit.  Now he's quit a second time.  Do i agree with him not getting the AD job...No. 

 

 

Sounds like jealousy...Heard Sandora is already building a nice staff.  He will fair well at Curley...He's a great coach and im my opinion the best young coach in the area.

For starters, there was Rich Stichel, who was a winning head coach at both New Town and John Carroll before joining Murphy at Curley. Then, there's rock-solid D Coordinator Frank Embardino, who was passed over as well. Jeff Farace was another very capable assistant, but who did not actively pursue or apply for the job. Next, there is the young, successful public school head coach who was an assistant at Curley before taking his current position. I mentioned him earlier.

 

So there was no shortage of quality coaches inside the Curley family who could have taken over for Murphy and maintained consistency and continuity in the program. There was no need to go outside the program for a replacement. I still believe Curley may end up regretting this hire.

I think Sandora will bring several of his current staff from Dundalk. As for the former Curley assistants who were willing to step down when Murphy resigned a couple of years ago (which only lasted a couple of days), I dont think you can blame them for that. That's just loyalty to the coach that gave you a shot. No problem with that. I dont know the coaches mentioned above but it sounds like they all need a fresh start somewhere else. Are any of them teachers at Curley?

Nope they are not.  Also, Murphy quit a little over a  year ago.  It certainly was not a couple of years ago and I'm sure this came into play with his decision to go.

Jealousy, my axx. I'm not a member of the coaching staff, so this doesn't affect me personally. Disappointed is the word...for a group of outstanding coaches and guys. I stand by what I said about Embardino and the other coaches as well. Any one of them would have been a better choice than Sandora. I was especially disappointed that Stichel, a winning head coach at two different schools, was passed over. But the powers-to-be will do what they want to do, logic and common sense be damned. I believe Sandora may be out of his element at Curley, and probably won't fare very well there. And there is no way I would classify a guy with his limited head coaching experience as a great coach...LOL. Great coaches stand the test of time. This guy is barely getting started.

He left due to family not feelings

You may want to read the baltimore sun article again.  He insinuated being passed over for the AD job made it easier for him to join his wife.  I'll post it for you since it seems reading and doing your homework is an issue for you.

 

"In 2015, Murphy resigned when he was not offered the athletic director job when it came open. But he changed his mind and resumed his duties a few days later after an outpouring of support from alumni and after being offered additional responsibilities, including the college athletics advisor position.

He said that conflict played a small part in his departure."

Maybe it was just time to go and seek new opportunities. His wife's new career just made it easier to make a decision

Man you are acting like he left Ohio State or Michigan for a high school job somewhere. He left one high school for another in another state where he can be with his family

Yea, Dont see your point here with this statement??? It makes about zero sense.  This goes back to people bashing a good coach in Sandora.  You're right I'm done with this, Sean will prove the haters wrong.  Looking forward to it.

Relax Coach...I don't think anybody is bashing Coach Sandora, they are just expressing there surprise to hire outside, some a disappointment.  I personally think it will be a tough transition at first, but will take time...Gonna be tough to run a spread offense without spread players, and curley normally (we'll see what happens) does not take transfers and if they do not a ton.  Big determining factor will be how to handle coaching duties and recruiting, who will be coordinating?  IMO, watching every team run a spread in the B is gonna be like watching 7v7...

Tough Schedule EI, Really???  We have a 2016 .500 Curley team playing 5 teams with winning records and 5 teams with losing records from 2016.  .500 equals .500 so Curely seems that it will be playing par and not tough.
