Where is the comments

Why did you go to Denham high school the morning before you told your current team you were going. You say that they were supposed to be told at 13:30 but you were at that school. Why didn’t you tell kids!

CajunRT

Why did you blame kids that you left because Live oak was going to be live oak? Missing practices and blocks. Does Denham? Now you take credit for everything! But no blame

CajunRT

Just so everyone knows. What you hear on this podcast is not the whole story! That is what’s sad!! Men do the right thing!

Coincidence that he chooses live oak at 2-8 and Denham Springs at 1-9? It’s not difficult to be the savior of those programs.

CajunRT

Exactly. He is a study of up and coming. Midldle school and youth sports. We can all do the same. Live oak is losing 29 seniors this year and only has 8 juniors. Any person could realize that you would have a couple down years to rebuild. He told the kida as much and he didn’t want to be blamed for that. But instead he blaming his current players for returning to there old ways. Meanwhile he told them he wasn’t going anywhere.

I guess I’m the only one that is willing to comment on this situation. It’s great to only express only his point of view of how this went down. If Livingston parish news wants to do a complete story please ask all the parents, kids and live oak community how this happened. I appreciate all that coach beard has done for the program and I believe he is a program manager. He has so done great things for ours. Problem is has been for me on how this has went down with the powers that be and how our kids are being blamed. No one should blame live oak players. But coach beard is telling them that it played into his discussion. All he is looking at is what kind of team he can field next year to make him look good just like in podcast. Don’t believe me listen to podcast. He told all my kids days before that he wasn’t going nowhere. Commitment and loyalty!

RR

One day he will show is real character as opposed to the one he preaches so much about. Hope you enjoy a coach that talks about loving your kids and then lies to them about leaving and allowing those kids to find out the truth from the rival school‘s players bragging and taunting them on social media, instead of being a Man and telling them first face to face. And be ready for him taunting them at school about coming back and beating them every year before he is restricted from talking to the team by school administration. Think this couldn’t be true?? Ask any live oak football parent!! Enjoy your new coach.

It was disappointing the way he left. I suspected something was up after mid season. It reminded me of the Denham Springs job distraction going in to 2017 playoffs.... Hate to see him go but he was always attracted to the school down the street. Just hate that my sons senior year ended that way. GEAUX EAGLES!!!!!!!

He won 2 district games in 2 years. Wasted talent he had this year. It is a good move for all.
