BREAKING NEWS: Coaches Quit

Cameron Fletcher, sports editor for The Campus Ledger, is reporting on his blog that three head coaches at Johnson County Community College have stepped down from their positions.

Details are sketchy but according to Fletcher's post the three coaches are:

Debbie Carrier, head coach of Women's Basketball

From Carrier's Bio:


Head coach Debbie Carrier has built a program at Johnson County Community College that has catapulted the program into the national spotlight as annual contender for the NJCAA Division II title, and a consistent top-15 nationally ranked program in the NJCAA coaches poll.

The 2007-08 season was another impressive campaign for the all-time winningest coach in JCCC history. Carrier has led this year’s team to a school record 28 wins, and along the way her team won its ninth straight Region VI title, sixth District B championship, made sixth appearance in the NJCAA D-II National Tournament, finished fourth in the final coaches poll, and fifth in the National Tournament.

Jill Stinson, head coach of Volleyball

From Stinson's bio:

From the outset, it was evident Stinson would carry on the tradition while establishing a legacy of her own. Johnson County raced out of the gate her first season with a school record 13 straight wins, breaking a 15-year mark. That fast start also helped JCCC receive a top-20 national ranking. Her team went on to capture a school and conference record eighth consecutive conference championship. That string was extended to 10 straight years. In 2003, Stinson again led JCCC to a conference title, but added region and district titles as well, and a ninth-place finish in the NJCAA D-II Tournament. It was JCCC’s first national tournament appearance in 20 years. Read the rest of her bio here.

Joe Weis, head coach men's and women's track

From Weis' bio:


Since taking the reins of the track and field program at Johnson County Community College, Joe Weis has found tremendous success. As he enters his sixth year at the helm, Weis, his staff and his teams continue to establish their marks in the lore of Cavalier history, shattering school records and adding numerous All-Americans to the illustrious luminaries of JCCC’s storied past. Judging by his results, both as a coach and as an athlete, this path looks to continue into the future. Read the rest of his bio here.
