SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Turnover is a part of life

Published: Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 04:14 PM.

Other coaches leave because of pressure from parents or simply because they aren't a good fit for the program.

Some coaches just want to coach at their alma mater.

Indications suggest the coaching carousel could be ending at Crestview High.

Tim Hatten — named head football coach and athletic director in March — has a reputation of being a coach not in search of the next big gig.

Watson said he plans on being at Crestview for a while; that's good news for the Bulldog basketball team.

Andrew Black — who just finished his first year as the Bulldog wrestling coach — is a former CHS athlete, which speaks of being here for the long haul.

Kathy Combest enters her third year as Crestview’s volleyball coach and her second season as the girls basketball coach. She also coached the softball team last year, when former football coach Kevin Pettis resigned to take a job at Sebastian River. It is unclear if Combest will be in the Bulldog dugout next spring.
