PETTIS ON THE RECORD: Former Crestview athletic director tells all

A: I don't know that I could have done anything more than I was doing.

When a coach decides to leave, or thinks he's going to be looking — if, at any time in the process I thought Crestview was going to be my end spot, then yes, I would have found any number of a ways to salvage it. But I never thought Crestview was going to be my end spot.

From the day I got here, I knew I wasn't going to be here forever. It's one of those deals when you go 4-6, 4-6, you know .... and then you have (rumors about potential administration shakeups) and it was just one of those things: if this was the right time or was the timing right to leave — and I thought it was.


Q: Ed Coleman, the principal who hired you, was moved to another position in the school system shortly after you were hired. Did that have any effect on the last two years?

A: I've loved working for Mr. Jones. I want that to be on the record. I've loved working for Mr. Jones — he's good people.

I love sitting around talking basketball with him. He's a friend.
