I am absolutely appalled at this situation. Allowing two daddy's to be able to get something like this started and for the GUTLESS administration to allow it to continue is disgusting. The school board and administration just made Montgomery look foolish! I wonder what dirt the dads have on the board members and administration for them to become so spineless. Kuddos to you Prowant and Ross for making yourselves look like complete idiots! My sympathy goes out to all the girls in Coach Weavers programs that won't get to finish with the man that helped build them into the athletes and young ladies they are today!

Again the few (whinny girls) ruin it for the many, particular the seniors! Coach Weaver is a great man & a great coach. Montgomery School Board is out of their minds. A very unfair decision (to force Weaver out) that unfortunately can't be corrected. Who will suffer? The vast majority of the girls on the teams & Weaver. Who benefits? The few whinny girls who didn't like being pushed to excel & who clearly have daddy issues or daddy's with issues!

Coach Weaver will move on to bigger and better things. He dedicated much of his life to helping young individuals become productive and competitive citizens in our society. He taught those individuals about honesty, commitment, and hard work. Some may not agree with the way in which he went about teaching those things, but I guess that's what makes us human. Let’s just agree to disagree. We can't control the way this situation was handled, but we can lift a good man up and encourage him to continue to do the things many have come to love him for.

After 30+ years in the district a great educator, coach, and leader of young people is now none of those things? Something smells in Montgomery! I hope someone's mom or dad takes over the reins only to find out how difficult it is to deal with kids and their parents. Good Luck! Coach Weaver is a class act. Wish we could say the same of the whinners in Red Raider Land.

Something is wrong with the way the Montgomery School Administration and Board are handling things if you have a veteran coach of this caliber forced out mid season. My sympathy goes to all the female athletes affected by these unethical circumstances.
