Eagle football schedule change.

Tim Davis and Kirby Smith plan on keeping their same Campbellsville High School coaching roles for the 2009-2010 seasons.

Some folks got the idea that Tim Davis had resigned his coaching position. He did, one of them. He will no longer be the golf coach, but definitely plans on guiding the Eagle boys' basketball team.

It will be Davis' 15th season at CHS and his 27th as a head coach.

Smith, who was named CHS principal, would like to remain as the Eagles' head baseball coach.

A lot of schools in Kentucky and elsewhere allow administrators to be coaches. There is no law stating you can't do it, just like there's no law stating that if school is not in session for bad weather you can't play sporting events.

Down the road, Mike Griffiths is assistant principal at Green County and has enjoyed enormous success as the Dragons' head football boss.

I can also remember my first year as sports editor, way back in 1985, that then Campbellsville superintendent Dave Fryrear was the Eagles' head coach when David Payne experienced pre-season back problems.

If superintendent Mike Deaton and the School Board can agree, Smith should be in charge for his fourth season as head coach.

Just a scheduling note: The Eagles' regular-season football finale with Washington County on Friday has been moved to Springfield. That gives CHS five home games this season and six next season. The original schedule had it just the opposite.
