New Coach at TVS

Tyler Cates has been offered the TVS head coach position pending approval of the school board is the word on the street.  He has been an assistant at Greenville, Versailles, and Arcanum.  He is a teacher at TVS who did the middle school track program this last school year.  So he has an advantage as far as knowing the players already and being familiar with the school as opposed to an outside candidate.  With the school levy failing there are rumblings that the play to pay fee's will be increased.  If this is the case, it could be a factor as far as numbers - if the fee's go up too much then it could prevent some kids from participating if their families simply don't have the money.

I know that the program was starting to move in the right direction under the previous head coach - and participation has been up. So the hope is that the new coach can build on that momentum. Lots has to happen in a short period of time - fall is not that far away,  get assistant coaches lined up, introduce the players to the new system - and the new offense and defense.  It will be interesting to see if the coach will stay with a spread offense or switch gears to a wing T option defense, pro set or ???
