  1. Northeast Guilford now looking for a new head football coach again…Change happens quickly….

  2. I’ll be curious to see what Stevenson says at his Ragsdale welcome meeting. Will it be the same line he just sold the Northeast kids and parents?

  3. Aint no way im switching from NE to Ragsdale, he sure has his job cut out for him but aye good luck

  4. Would love to be a fly on the wall at the next county wide athletic directors meeting….

  5. Northeast ran Raynor out of town to hire their guy. Their guy leaves after a month… Karma sucks.

  6. Why we just don’t ask the AD and Principal at Northeast what happened? Come on common sense he’s been at NE for a couple of months then leave. At least Ragsdale got an awesome coach who’s gonna do an outstanding job. Let’s go Tiger’s get behind our new Coach.

  7. I’m glad to see it happen to NE. The new AD seems to be pretty much terrible at this point. Running off multiple head coaches.

  8. Why is there this negativity towards Northeast?
    A football coach changed his mind about where he wants to work.
    Some factors could have come up that those of us that are not involved with the day to day operations of either school would not have firsthand knowledge about.
    Maybe Coach Stephenson lives closer to Ragsdale?
    Maybe the teaching position was better for him at Ragsdale?
    Placing the blame on an individual from EITHER school is just plain wrong.
