Good for him. Hope he does well...

Nope

He got excitement back in VB in year one

You sound butt hurt....be happy for the guy.

It's not the amount of time spent coaching that qualifies a person for the job - if that was the case - John L would still be coaching at UofA.

FANONTHEHILL:

He was OC at Bentonville West in 2017 when they made a solid playoff run. Fayetteville has seen this offense and will run it with better athletes than Dick had at West or Van Buren.  This is a solid hire.  Also after losing Bill Blankenship and then Billy Dawson the last few years, Fayetteville was looking for a young coach that wanted to be in Fayetteville.

thebignasty:

Head coaching resume is 1 year with a 4-7 forfeit aided record at Van Buren.



I was pretty sure they'd go after Zak Clark.

Probably the best high school job in the state right now. Set up for winning by being the last city with one high school in NWA.

Dwight_K_Shrute:

JFC I can't believe some of the ish that seems to carry over from board to board to board.  Former much under appreciated Razorback lands HC job at Fayetteville and some can't just congratulate him and leave it at there.  There are no need for qualifiers period.  Just be happy for a former Hog.  It's a great opportunity for him and pi** on anyone who says he doesn't deserve it or hasn't earned it.  The guy has been coaching since he got out of college.

Can be happy for Casey and wonder what Fayetteville is thinking at the same time.

Not sure what you mean by the "message about their job going forward? 
Preference for youth movement in their coaching ranks? 
Money saver ---- ability to pay someone less than  a more experienced coach?
Succumbing to outside pressures because he is a former Razorback?
Connections as in nepotism or political connections?
Other favoritisms?

Guess I just don't have the "inside" information.

Word around Fayetteville is that the two previous coaches wanted to bring their own sons in as assistants.  The district balked on the idea and they both left.  Not an issue when the hireís son is a toddler.  As a Fayetteville Alum, Iím very happy about the hire.

247Hog:

Hope he does well and can help develop more backyard talent for the Hogs.

I have heard from several people that the players and most that's around Casey, hate dealing with him. I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing but i'm not sure how well that will go over in Fayetteville if true.

Nothing against Casey Dick, but this seems like a strange hire to me. I hope he's successful at Fayetteville but I have to think there were a bunch of more qualified applicants for the job.

yraciv:

If you guys think hiring Casey Dick is a strange hire, what do you think about HY hiring a 23 year old Gold Medal Olympian with limited coaching experience to take over a Top 20 Gymanastics program?

In all seriousness, I've always liked Casey since going to U of A with him. Very nice guy! Yes I question if he is qualified for what I think is the best job in the state, but he loves Northwest Arkansas, and will be there a long time if he has success.

In other news, former Hog Crosby Tuck has been named his replacement at Van Buren.

Agreed. Hugh Freeze once applied for the Rogers job. (Pre becoming an NCAA coach)

Congrats to Casey! Never hurts to have a former Hog at one of the high profile schools in the state. Woo Pig!

Give the guy more than one season and half a recruiting class before declaring him a failure...fat boy did leave a massive dumpster fire , in case you memory has failed you.

FANONTHEHILL:

Fayetteville saw first hand what Casey can do directing an offense with higher level talent.  He was OC at Bentonville West in 2017 when West made a strong playoff run.  Van Buren didnít have the athletes across the board to have a great deal of success vs teams like Bentonville, Bíville West, Har-Ber, Springdale, and Fayetteville, but the scheme was sound.  As the father of a Fayetteville player Iím very happy with the hire.  The formal introduction/press conference is Friday afternoon at 3 and a team meeting just prior. The kids are excited about the hire and thatís a good start.

Casey still owns the greatest TD throw to end a career of any QB at Arkansas, ever.

Think you said all that needs to be said. When you get a former UofA star as a coach, it is going to excite the high school kids. They are going to be super pumped to have a young, star coach like that and are going to play really hard for him.

Well, the government would take a hundred million off the top for taxes.  My wife would automatically claim her half.  Relatives would remind me of all the favors they did for me (most of which I can't remember) that I need to repay.  My rent would go up.  Our church would tell me that it's time to start tithing instead of giving just what I thought I could afford week to week.  AARP would offer me all kinds of "can't miss" deals.  My financial adviser would strongly recommend insider tips that were sure to double my investment, for an extra fee.

Oh, Hell.  I think I  just won't buy a lottery ticket this week.

RazorPiggie:

As a VB alum I'm pissed. Oh well.

twistitup:

I like it when schools take a chance and go a non-traditional direction. It doesn't always work out - but it sure makes things interesting.

Young men seem to be taking over football coaching on all levels. I think it's about relating to the players; the old school style is being phased out for a fresh, young, open approach to coaching. We are on our second round of trying this approach at UofA - CBB was a failure, then we went back for more w CCM

Maybe it works...maybe we go back to hiring old codgers in 5-10 years - who knows.

When I was playing HS/College ball it was not out of the ordinary for coaches to grab a player by the facemask, jerk him around the field while screaming cuss words and belittling the player -  that was their way to 'coach' ....I think those days are gone for the most part.
