Old Coaches

Postby muni cup14 » Fri May 18, 2018 3:44 pm

We have a lot of excitement going on now. But I still wonder,and worry about our previous coaching staff.You know I never wanted my worst enemies to ever lose a job.Because of all the people affected by it,kids ,spouses and so on.
So with that being said does anyone have any idea if any of our assistant coaches have found employment elsewhere or our head coach if he is found employment elsewhere

I don’t know about anyone’s employment but I did see the Simmons’ home is now listed “For Sale”.

Sorry to hear this as I think Marty bleed purple and did so much for the Aces program when you realize where the program was when he took over. I'm sure he was instrumental in things like the new practice facility, the Ford Center, etc. He came ever so close to getting us back to the big dance but couldn't quite get us over the hump.

His family was always friendly and cordial when I talked with them; and the players (with very few exceptions) were always top notch and courteous as well and graduated.

Best wishes to not only Marty and family but to all of the assistant coaches and staff that were affected by this decision.

Hopefully Walter and company can get us to the Promised Land; only time will tell.

Go Aces!!!

I have nothing but respect for Marty. Idk if he gets enough credit for what he did, but still sometimes it’s just time for a change. Breath of fresh air for the program. Can’t wait for the season! Have had season tickets since 1995. Hopefully an atmosphere like the old days returns to the Ford Center soon!

I don't know why Marty is so bitter.He had a losing record against D1 schools,never made the dance,and the attendance dwindled every year.

I must have missed the stories of him being bitter. Certainly you aren't inferring that from the poster saying his house is for sale. Please share. If it has been posted and I missed it pm so I don't waste everyone's time. Thanks!
