Due to the inability of the current Little Elm, TX varsity head football coach to hire and maintain a consitent coaching staff; his inability and lack of willingness to develope a program to produce young atheletes interested in high school football through local youth organizations and the Junior High, the loss of top level atheletic prospects who have quit the program completely, moved from the district for opportunities to play elsewhere, or are considering moving out of the football program; the turbulent and non-respectful nature of his relationship with parents, his coaching staff and other colleagues in coaching and teaching throughout the district; the inconsistent program and message of coaching philosophy due to the programs overall inconsistency in coaching philosophy and staff; and the overall idea of theatening verbage, messages, and lack of respect towards staff, parents and atheletes; this petition seeks to spearhead a movement aimed at the Superintendent, school board and atheletic director of Little Elm, TX to hire a new Head Varsity football coach and vote not to renue the contract of the current head football coach.
We the undersigned, would like for you, the leadership of our district and all it's programs, to consider hiring a new Head Varsity Football Coach.
As stated in the introduction, collectively, we feel that the high school football program, it's coaching staff, atheletes, direction, message, and total inconsistency rest solely with the head football coach.
This district has lost more football coaches (which translates to teachers) in the past two years than in any other time in the history of this district. The primary reasons are: lack of direction; inconsistent philosophy; disrespect for coaching staff; lack of communication with atheletes; and lack of leadership and organizational skills with respect to grooming coaches and atheletes into the overall philosophy of the program from the Junior High level through Varsity.
This coach has, on several occasions, been confrontational with collegues outside of the football coaching staff, his own coaching staff, student atheletes, parents, and has even been insubordinate towards his superiors.
We request that you seriously consider replacing the Varsity Head Football coach for the betterment and future of our district, student atheletes, staff and town.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and consider the petition.
Parents, Students and Friends of Little Elm
