Cosper out as Sherman baseball coach

The coaching changes continue at Sherman High School with baseball coach Gary Cosper being reassigned.

Cosper has spent the last twelve years at Sherman High. He has been the head coach for the last seven seasons. Cosper's Bearcats have been to the playoffs three times in those years. Sherman is coming off a 20-10 record, but failed to win a play-in game to get into the post-season.

By KXII's count, Cosper is the 12th coach to leave Sherman since Gary Kinne took over as athletic director. Last month, boys basketball coach Jeff McCullough left to take a job in Norman. Girls basketball coach Alan Pope was let go.

The Sherman football team has lost many of their assistants with only two (Clay Sims and Brent Graham) remaining in tact from last year's staff.

Kinne came in just before the school year and did not have time to assemble his own coaching staff before the start of the 2009 football season.

    All of this devious underhanded behavior is for the promise of a placated athletic director and the promise of an outstanding football season. Mr. Hambrick, it needs to be about the broad and balanced quality education of our students. Please get your priorities in order before you and your staff sell out our children’s education for a football trophy. There are a lot of highly energetic, smart, and promising educators out there looking for jobs so let’s work on improving the quality of the teaching staff at SISD. Goodness knows that we lose a lot of the great teachers to higher paying school districts already so don’t make it worse by blindly settling for Mr. Kinne’s hand picked coaching cronies and then somehow matching them to a job opening. GO BEARCATS!

    Well it looks like our new athletic director / football coach has found the time and is working hard at assembling his staff for next fall. So now that he is successfully running off our old coaches, I’m interested in understanding the process by which the new staff is hired. Do they apply to SISD for an open position and then go through the interview process like all the other candidates? Or does the athletic director with help from the head office pull a few strings and we fast track his new staff to the front of the list? I sincerely hope that such unethical happenings at SISD. I would like to believe that SISD is hiring and working to retain the best teaching staff available. Instead I fear that SISD is playing the good old boy politics and dragging in teaching staff without regard to their qualifications as educators or even SISD staffing needs but hiring folks just because they coached for the athletic director at his old job.

    12 coaches, something is wrong in Sherman and I can't believe the Al Hambrick is not on top of it. I played under Coach Cosper when he was an assistant and knows the game of baseball. Be careful what you ask for, sometimes you get way more than you expected. I bet everyone wishes old Drew Young was back in the saddle. Get it together Sherman ISD...or it might be too late.

    Maybe the High school AD will funnel some more $'s into the softball program. They have a coach that cares and really gets it. Coach Zachary wants to build a program that will sustain, unlike the other coaches that appear to just want to build a reputation. Shame on the AD for so grossly underfund the softball program, he should open his eyes and maybe he will see that Shermans best chance for a state championship will probably be from the next 2 years in the softball program. Somebody really needs to pay attention to the program, we have a real coach there with a real passion!

    For some reason there is something isn't right about coaching situation in Sherman I'm not impressed with Gary myself all those coaches that were let go were there before Mr Kinne was offered the job.

    Hmmmm, wonder what's going on? Don't know all the coaches leaving but have never heard anything bad on them. In fact, mostly praise. I ma not nearly as impressed with Kinne as I thought I was. Maybe that Canton incident had more behind it than we ever knew.
