YV’s Turner resigns as football coach

As Jimmy mentioned in a comment a few minutes ago, Ygnacio Valley football coach Chris Turner has indeed resigned. Here’s what I wrote for tomorrow’s paper.

 

Ygnacio Valley coach Chris Turner resigned from his position as head football coach on Tuesday, citing the need to focus on supporting his family after being passed over for an on-campus job as a site supervisor.

“I thought I was going to have a position on campus and did the position for two months,” Turner said. “I did the interview and was confident it would be a done deal and right before spring break they told me they were going to hire someone else.”

The Warriors went 9-3 in Turner’s lone season at the helm, winning a co-Diablo Valley Athletic League championship along the way. Turner said he didn’t know whether he would coach in any capacity next season, saying his primary focus will be on finding a full-time job.

“I can’t say enough about the group of kids there,” Turner said. “I love the kids and that’s what made it so hard.”

    “Their new coach is an on-campus coach who has no respect from any player worth a darn there. There are good athletes who won’t and have not played football there because of this guy because they don’t care for him as a teacher and want no part of playing for him and being coached by him.”

    100% false. As a parent of a YV player, this is completely incorrect. Any valid points you may have made in your previous post is now colored by your obvious bias and false statements. It is simply not true. One wonders if you were an applicant and are bitter you didn’t get the job?

  • Budman

    Whoever the Eureka Loggers play it’s safe to say one can only hope you lose in a big way, to close your big mouth!
    The Warriors seem to have their heads on right, stay together as a TEAM! You guys were awfully good last year build on that.

    What2Do? What’s that about?

    “Northgate certainly has a chance as well given what is taking place at that school”

  • Budman

    Whoever plays the Eureka Loggers its safe to say we’ll hope they get beat in a big way, to close their big mouth fan up!
    The Warriors seem to have their heads on straight, stay tight as a TEAM you were awfully good last year build on that!

    What2Do….? ” Northgate certainly has a chance as well given what is taking place at that school”
    What’s that about??

  • what2do

    Hoopfan,

    In order for you to say I’m 100% false in my statement that there are some players who don’t want to be coached by the new coach would mean you would have had to have had a conversation with EVERY single player on the team and EVERY single male student on the YV campus to be right. Well I know a few kids who are on the team who don’t want him as the coach as well as a few who stopped playing football at YV because he was their coach. So. I know with 100% certainty that you don’t know what you’re talking about. Having an actual conversation with a kid and telling what they say in think doesn’t make me bias. Why don’t you ask some of them yourself since you think obviously think you have some inside knowledge of what goes on there and you know so much just because you’re the parent of a YV player. One wonders if you’re sleeping with the new coach since you defend him with a statement that you’re 100% certain that I’m making a false statement. YOU don’t have a clue as to what most of those kids think and are just basing your statement on perhaps the fact that your son might like the new coach and come on here thinking you can speak for the entire team and male population at YV.

    Hoopfan,

    Do yourself a favor and go ask a kid by the name of Mockling who I believe played football at YV in 2008 but did not last year and the boys he hangs out with at school why they didn’t play football this past season and then come back and tell the rest of us on this board that I’m 100% false when they tell you how they feel about the new coach and why they didn’t play football THEIR SENIOR year. As you start to ask around and talk to current players on the team (if you dare to do some leg work before judging me) you just might be surprised by what you hear when the kids are really honest with you. But we both know you won’t do this because you don’t want to hear the truth. You and a lot of others simply can’t handle the truth and would rather live in that feel good comfort zone you shield yourself in and bury your heads in the sand about really goes on.

    I gave you a name to get your facts straight. How’s that for being bitter and biased?

  • what2do

    Hoopfan,

    Ask yourself this question… what purpose would I have in making a statement that any player worth a darn at YV has no respect for the new head coach if it could be easily checked out by someone like you who claims to be a parent of a YV player if it were really a false statement like you want to believe?

    What would I have to gain other than pulling the wool off of your blind eyes? As a parent of a player on the team wouldn’t you want to know something like this instead of believing everything is rosy? If this was a DI college and your kid was on the team wouldn’t you want someone who might know something about the situation where your son plays to tell you the truth?

    Should what happened at Texas Tech been kept quiet and Mike Leach be able to keep his job even though some of the players had serious issues with how they were treated by him when they didn’t agree with his way of dealing with them being injured? And this is a coach who is a proven winner. What has Bauleke won at YV? What has he done as a defensive coordinator the past four seasons that makes him the best man for the job in light of the facts uncovered when you actually look at the defense statistically under his watch like I pointed out in my first post?

    And you say I’m biased and bitter for backing up my statements with cold hard easy to prove facts… WOW!!!

    what2do….watta hell do you know about yv’s team..were the 2nd team behind northgate with the most returning players,we might be a small team,but i guarantee you were the strongest team in the dval,and we aint no punks we aint scared of nobody..and who ever the head coach is that doesnt matter we as a team already talked about that,were just gonna continue working out hard and move on and let the doubters do all the talking they want..

    Unknown to answer your question about what I know about your team… I know you’re a bunch of under achievers. A school with great potential to be a championship team on a consistent basis but will never have this materialize because of the coaches you have that obviously can’t put you in the best possible position to be successful.

    Having a certain number of returning players means nothing if the coach doesn’t know what to do with them to make them successful. It’s not about you saying we aint punks and we aint scared either. Most players on every team say this but that doesn’t make it true. I’ve coached football before on the high school level and most players are afraid of contact, which is okay but does not bode well for being a good football player when the whole premiss of football is hitting someone so your statement is just a young persons attempt at who knows what when in fact you might be afraid to really crack someone yourself. Even though I don’t know you personally I’ll bet that is the case with you if I ever watched film on you.

    I like your spirit and mindset of a fighter but even a spirited fighter like you needs someone to show them how to win the fight and I’m not talking about with your lips like you’re doing but with sound techniques, strategies and most importantly a mindset to overcome the adversity you will face when things aren’t going your way or as planned.

    You keep working hard though and I wish you and teammates luck because you’re going to need a lot of it with who you have as your head coach now.

  • unknown

    what2do..ur talking about nick mockling,he could have played his senior year when turner was the head coach but he decided not to.do i know the reason why? no do you?..you said ” I’ve coached football before on the high school level and most players are afraid of contact”..well maybe then you were just coaching at a school where there are panzis and are scared to smak people.here at yv it’s nothing but that warrior smash mouth football,everyone on the team is a hitter,you just keep running your mouth and do what you gotta do and or think what you wanna think..you also said “in fact you might be afraid to really crack someone yourself”..all i can do is laugh out loud.haha wat a f****** joke..put on a pair of pads and a helmet and ill show you was good..thats all im gonna say.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    I’ve been to some of your games last year and trust me, I know hitters when I see them and I saw so much arm tackling going on with YV players I thought I was watching dancing with the stars instead of a football game.

    I also know some of the players on the team as well and one very good player in particular told me that when you guys played Oakland Tech your linemen were scared to block #74 because of his size. #13 blew up your screen plays over and over again in that game. And they were able to basically come right up the middle on your offense without as much of a challenge from the O-line. In fact didn’t they score their first TD by busting through the line and knocking down a screen pass and take it to the house?

    #28 on your team who played free safety missed on so many kill shots to a receiver over the middle it was comedy. In fact didn’t he whiff on a kill shot on a receiver over the middle and Alameda scored a TD on the play in your first playoff game?

    And let’s not talk about the Eureka game where they simply went through your hard hitting defense like a knife going through soft ass butter.

    I know more about your team than you realize. I know some of your teammates past and present and so yes I know why Nick Mockling didn’t play football last year as well as why a few more didn’t as well.

    Again I don’t know who you are but I’m sure your bite isn’t as bad as your bark.
    What number do you wear? Tell me your number and I’ll know who you are and tell you just how good or bad you really are. I’ve seen you guys play enough to know everything I need to about your team.

    Unknown,

    If you want to see a team of hitters go over the fence of your school and watch what real hitting is. DLS knows how to hit. They don’t have to talk smack like you, they prove themselves on the field by winning championships. STATE championships at that.

    You all used to be in the same league with them but couldn’t beat them. In fact to get any real competition they have to play teams outside the state to get a real game. But you keep livin that fantasy you have about how good you really are. It’s nice to have confidence in yourself even if it’s false and not based on anything you have actually shown on the field.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    First rule is to be truthful about who and what you really are before any change can take place. Until you can look at yourself in the mirror and face some truths about what type of player you really are you’ll never reach your full potential as a player.

    What position do you play? Can you and do you win your individual battle against the man playing against you 9 out of 10 times? If you can’t say yes then you most certainly aren’t as good as you think you are and need to work on your game.

    Are you the leading tackler on the team? I bet you don’t even know who is do you? You see I’ve forgotten more about football than you actually know and can break down your game in a NY minute.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    One last thing for you… you also have to be on the field to actually have a chance to be a smash mouth player and from what I know about your team and school you all struggle just to stay eligible to even play football or even graduate from high school.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    Of course you would see telling the truth as hating on you. Kids like you are what is going wrong in our society. The truth hurts and instead of facing it you run from it and then call those who tell it to you haters. Please tell me what YV is doing so right when 3% of the entire student body graduates and then goes on to college and a productive life?

    You guys are making yourself famous without my help. Famous for being a school that their students don’t go to college. A school that has a reputation that is negative instead of positive. YV and Mt. Diablo are perceived as the two worst schools in the district. So please tell me what is right about YV and change my perception.

    I also noticed you didn’t even have the guts to tell me your number. You talk a lot without backing up anything. Yeah I’m sure you’ll do your talking once the season starts too. You’ll do more talking than playing no doubt.

    Please tell me this… was anything I said in this blog a lie? Did all those things I said actually happen or was I making it all up? If it was all true, how does that make me me a hater then?

    what2do..o since you actually asked yes i am graduating 3.8 gpa son..so how did this go from football to school work and who graduates and all dis other bull crap?? you dont even know me dude..so dont be speaking on me like you know me bruh..cause when it comes down too it ya the ones who end up calling the rollaz..

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    I seriously doubt you’re telling the truth about your gpa with the words you use like heka, bruh, rollaz and all the other slang words you probably use in your everyday language when you respond to me. What does calling the cops have anything to do with the topic at hand SON?

    If you were able to actually understand my point you would know how we got on the subject of school work and football and grades dude… they all go together when you’re a STUDENT ATHLETE. Notice the word student is first and not second bruh!!!

    You were the one that brought up all this stuff about how great YV is not me. Everything I mentioned is all part of the package of what a great school is bruh.

    What number do you wear bruh?

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    I also noticed that you didn’t say I was lying about anything bruh… So I guess I made my point that I’m not hating on you or your squad huh bruh?

    Now you trying to deflect and change gears from the topic because I struck a nerve and got you thinking huh bruh?

    What position you play bruh? With a 3.8 GPA what school you going to after graduation bruh?

    I can speak on you without knowing you personally because I know tons of kids that think, act and communicate just like you bruh.

  • what2do

    It’s also real obvious that you also have no respect for anyone older than you when you call your elders son and bruh as well. Did you learn how to be disrespectful to people who tell you the truth at YV too?

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    When you don’t agree with your father do you also call him son or bruh when responding back to him? Just curious how you respond to people who actually know more than you or are in positions of authority. Must be the reason why you brought up the subject of calling the rollaz. You used to them being called on you huh? Hostility instead of intelligent dialogue must be the way you deal when you are frustrated too I bet.

  • unknown

    what you want? report cards,transcripts?? tell me when and where and ill be happy enough to bring you one of those 2 things bruh..how a person speaks doesnt reflect on how they do in the classrooms either..you said “With a 3.8 GPA what school you going to after graduation bruh?”..to answer your question im actually going to dvc if you really wanted to know…but other then that your just a waste of my time bruh..duces.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    If you really had a 3.8 gpa you wouldn’t need to go to DVC. Just goes to show how low your standards are if that’s the best you can do. What you can’t handle a full fledged University? Scared to get an education huh bruh? Just want to hang around here and be with your friends instead of going out and exploring the world huh bruh?

    You’re not fooling me. You don’t have a 3.8 gpa the only time you’re wasting is going to DVC which is a school people go to when they actually don’t have a 3.8 gpa and need to bring their grades up. Either it’s that or you can’t afford to go to a Unviersity. But if you were really as smart as you say you are then you should have no problem getting a scholarship either academic or as an athlete which also means you aren’t that good of a football player either.

    duces bruh. I know the truth about you. You’re a fake.

    How come you won’t answer the other questions?

    Did I lie about anything I said about YV last year? How come you won’t say what number you wore either? What, you afraid I’ll be able to expose all that other stuff you said about how you are a hitter and all that other crap you said and be able to tell you about your game honestly since I’ll know who you are and saw you play?

    What’s up with that bruh? Every time we exchange words your tune changes too bruh. Now you say answering me is a waste of time only because you have no real come backs.

  • GoGrizz

    What2do, you disgust me. You are everything wrong with blogs. This is high school sports, and for you to be calling out players and coaches while hiding behind a made up moniker, that’s just the lowest of the low. You are clearly a bitter, bitter, person. I hope you get your life turned around.

    what2do,,aha wat if i dont wanna go to no university is my life i can do watevr da f*** i wanna do like i said you want report cards,transcripts or whatever i got it just holla at me son…and you say im a fake?? aha,wish i would see you in the streets some day,ill show you was up and whos really the fake one..and why you so worried about what number am i?? dont even trip about it bruh..but for real im done with you,before this gets out of hand,then the real funk gonna start..dont hate the player,hate the game BRUH!!!!

  • http://ibabuzz bbfan2

    i am not going to get into all the football stuff, what2do has that covered, but i do have to say that if unknown is going to dvc, let’s not knock that. whatever path he chooses, he is still furthering is education.

  • unknown

    thank you bbfan2.for understanding.

  • what2do

    You guys are funny. GoGrizz? I guess that’s your real name and not some made up moniker right? What a hypocrite you are. You come in at the eleventh hour on what was basically a two way exchange between a high school player that believes he is better than he probably really is talking about a team he played for that is not as good as they think they are and you say crap to me because I point out things that I’ve seen about this team with my own two eyes and speak on it to this young man?

    You probably have never been to a YV football game in your life so go jump off a bridge. You’re what’s wrong with society. You afraid to tell a kid the truth about life and living in a real world and have never to criticize someone who isn’t to be truthful and honest about a comment he initiated.

    Again, Unknown, was anything I said a lie? No, you just can’t handle being told the truth and now you got some sympathy from GoGrizz the hypocrite who says I’m hiding behind the same made up moniker name he is.

    and Bbfan 2, I never said there was anything wrong with going to DVC. I agree with you 100% but as I stated to young Unknown, if you have a 3.8 GPA why set your standards low and go to a junior college when you have obviously shown you can do better and challenge yourself and grow at a University if you truthfully have the GPA you claim to have.

    And don’t be so naive to think a high school kid can’t come on a blog and lie about himself and who and what he really is. Don’t hate me because I don’t believe him and take his word at face value on a blog and challenge his intellect.

  • hoopfan

    PR, time to cool it. You didn’t get the job, man up and move on. Don’t piss in another guy’s garden, it doesn’t reflect well on you.

  • what2do

    Hoopfan,

    Who the hell are you? You nothing about me. Who are you to tell me anything as if you can control what I write on this blog?

    This is the mentality I’m talking about. You don’t know me from can of paint but think you do and then also think you can come on here to tell me to cool it as if you’re my father or something. You know where you can go with that crap.

    I piss where I want to piss. You’re just pissed because you’re another in a long line of stooges who when told the truth come up with responses like the one you just made instead of facing the truth because you just can’t have your cosy little world challenged.

    I could care less if you think you know who I am. I’d say the same thing to your face just so you know JJ. I notice that you have nothing to say though about my direct responses to you though in #’s 54, 55 and 56.

    You worry about telling your son what to do instead of me because I’m not your son and you don’t control what I can and can’t say and where I can and can’t say it. I don’t care what you or anyone else thinks of me either or how this reflects on me. I don’t live for YOUR approval or anyone else’s for that matter.

    You man up and get a pair of balls and recognize the truth when you see it instead of being a yes man.

  • what2do

    Hoopfan,

    What strikes me as most funny through this exchange of words with you is the fact that you think you have me pegged when you really don’t. You know who I am (in name only but really know nothing about me as a person) and I know who you are JJ.

    And the thing I want you to know is this… I love your son as if he was my own and would do anything for him and any kid for that matter and you are too blind and too far gone to see that.

    Ask him how much I care about him. I know he plays other sports and I’ve shown up to them just to see him play just because of how I feel about him. I didn’t have to do that. But that’s the lengths that I go to.

    When’s the last time you’ve seen the guy you are so high on show up any of your son’s games in the other sports he plays in the four years he’s been going to that school? There’s the difference between me and him. A passion for what we do.

    How’s that for bias and bitter. If I were a snake you wouldn’t see me for what I am even if I jumped up and struck your leg.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    For the record. What I’m telling you is the same thing I would tell my own son. If you were my son I would want the best for you. I would encourage and challenge you to set your standards higher than you might set for yourself and go out and explore the world. Leave the nest and the comfort of your surroundings and make a good life for yourself. That’s the whole reason why I said that if you truly have a 3.8 GPA why not go to a 4 year school instead of a 2 year school and challenge your mind even more. There is nothing wrong with DVC but with a 3.8 GPA you can do better than DVC. You’re wasting the hard work it took to get that GPA all because you’re afraid of a challenge for whatever reason.

    Don’t hate me for pushing you to be a REAL WARRIOR. REAL WARRIORS aren’t scared to go conquer the world.

  • what2do

    Unknown,

    One last thing. If you think I was hard on you you haven’t seen anything yet. Real life is going to really deal you some blows and if you can’t take the little bit of heat I was giving you then I feel for you bruh because you aint seen nothing yet.

    In the real world people are going to lie to you all the time to your face and tell you what you want to know or think you want to hear instead of the truth no matter how painful it might be for you to hear like GoGrizz. They’re all about just making you feel good and having false confidence in yourself.

    It’s the same as someone seeing you are about to get hit by a bus but not tell you. In their world everything is fine, don’t worry you don’t have to look both ways before you cross the street anymore because every car will stop for you kind of crap.

    Look both ways before you cross because it’s not always safe to just step off the curb and into the street.

    There is a saying… Better to be told the bitter truth by a friend, then kissed on the cheek by an enemy.

    Double Wing – YV supposedly holds the CA record for most yards rushing in a season with 5k or something (Tim Murphy era). DW offense also holds CA state record (recently broken I think) for points in a season with over 800 (Don Markham). May not be pretty but under the right hands, it works. Any offensive/defensive scheme will work with belief by coaches and players, and coaches ability to teach it.

  • Warrior Diva

    This totally got Out of Control! Coach Turner was awesome and took the Boys as Far as Eureka. Yes a crappy Field there, But each Player on that YV Team Held their Heads up High and Played their A’s off! Yes Turner should have been Hired, his Heart and Soul went out to YV’s Varsity Team and more. Every win was a huge CC Times Sunday Paper Hit! Turner should be Proud and where he coaches next will sure be a Sucess! Too Bad YV But Good Luck to you next Year! If it’s not toolate, YV should get him back and Pay the MAN!!!

  • X’sandO

    Unknown, as a LL fan from across town, I hope you go to DVC and do well. And that tool was right, you’re going to run into people throughout life who are going to smile in your face but go home and hide behind a keyboard while disparaging others. Forget about them and keep your eyes on the goal.

    I’d say chances are he never put on a pair of pads in his life. If he had, he wouldn’t have the attitude he does. Good luck in your future endeavors.

    my names moises i was number 25 for yvhs my senior year and played forcoach turner, i was a captain and one of the leading tacklers if not THE leading tackler on the team, i was also a 4.1 student…i also recieved 2nd team all league, and not to toot my own horn but i think i deserved first team, i played the whole season with a pinched nerve in my neck..i am mexican…sounds like a full ride to any college right? wrong..i got accepted into ucla,ucsb,ucdavis,and calpolyslo…i am now attending dvc..not because im not good enough but because i cannot afford whatg you call REAL college…and the government will not fund my education…i speak in slang, and spanish but i got an A in my english AP class…this is true shitt…people need to stop being so ignorant…

    on other terms…chris turner is a great coach, i wish him the best of luck in his future and i can only thank him for a wonderful year.
