I had many. Some were better than others. One in particular showed faith in me that proved correct in a situation that I wasn't even aware of until much later.

Most were sports hires, and worthless.

Gary Waugerman was a coach, gym teacher, and health teacher.
Pretty normal. Always worthless āssholes, especially if you weren't off their players.


Not always.
Gary was a 1st class guy.
RIP Mr. Waugerman.

Had a structural building science professor in college that taught steel design to the architectural students....

Every hypothetical building design problem featured a simple rectangular building grid he claimed the architect stayed up all night designing.

I couldn't get enough of his ridicule of the pompous design students of which I was a part of.....

Never missed his class, which he kept attendance record of.......as a result he rounded up my semester grade .75% of a point to a letter grade higher.

I would have been happy without the roundup......he was a hoot.

Coach Bert was a good football coach.
He did not like baseball, "Nobody does anything but the pitcher, and catcher."

Ah, what about the middle infielders reading the catcher's sign, and directing the defense?

Backing up every play?

Most of the time it was having teachers that also coached on the side. Had the math teacher that was also the cross country & golf coach, the government teacher was also the track coach. Had numerous teachers that were also assistant football coaches. The only actual coach that a coach first was the football coach that was also the phys-ed teacher & summer health teacher.

I grew up in a very small town in north Texas. All the coaches except the head football coach/ad taught. They were all pretty good. Our head basketball coach was our health teacher. When it came to the std portion of the class, he’d yell at us players to “come up and tell the class our experience”. We’d laugh and laugh. Simpler times.

Yup.
Coach Keyes - girls basketball/soft ball - history - boring, but a good teacher
Coach Irby - head football/basketball coach - health- couldn't have given two hoots in hell, you were going to pass his health class. Took the Elks to 3 district championships. He was 5' 7" and went to college on a basketball scholarship.
Coach Turner - football - biology - genial and an excellent teacher
Coach Moore - ass't football - history - he was an alumni fresh from college. NEVER take your first teaching job at your alma mater. Nice enough guy, but we all knew him WAY too well! LOL!
When he tried to get tough on us at football practice, it went over like a lead balloon. NOBODY took him seriously.
I don't even think the head coach took him seriously.

Edit: Forgot about Coach Taylor - boys baseball - school principal. When I was hospitalized 22 years later, I got a get well card from he and his wife
Mrs. Taylor was the bookkeepping/typing teacher
Both retired from my alma mater and were well respected in the community.

I was the head track coach and AP World History teacher for 13 years. I loved being in the classroom. I could get on a roll get lost in some nerdville session on the Mongols or what not. Had a kid in the drive through last weekend tell me I was his favorite teacher. Humbling to say the least!
