BIG NEWS - Here, from what I have heard former USM Coach Gary Fifield will be taking over at Cheverus. That's quite a pick up for Cheverus, reminiscent of when Coach Brown took over there for the boys program.

Well, well, well...so much to say about this one. I watched a number of Cheverus girls games over the past two years and I am shocked by what has transpired. Cheverus proves again that it is being controlled by the almighty dollar. There is absolutely no reason for his dismissal. Someone would have heard something by now if the reason was legitimate. A couple of disgruntled parents, whose kids probably aren't nearly as good as daddy thinks, but they have the power and money to make things happen. I won't name him in this forum, but I've never been very impressed by the Cheverus AD, and it seems he has proven my suspicions true. And now Coach Fifield might be on his way? Come on! This is bad. Congrats to you Cheverus parents who were behind this. Well done. I'm sure your daughters will find out very quickly that Coach Huntington was on to something and that maybe he was playing the other girls for a reason. Be careful what you wish for...

If in fact Coach Fifield is going to be the new coach, that is a good thing. I have zero knowledge about why the change is being made I do know this. Gary is an outstanding coach. My daughters played for him. He had success by teaching, outworking teams. Success did not happen because he listened to parents. Players will have to earn time through his eyes, not through mommy, daddy, Grammy , grampy, etc. A few of you may be in for a rude awakening. I refer to that as the truth!!! Good luck Lady Stags

While I have not had a chance to catch up with Steve since he stepped aside, past conversations with him sometimes hinted he was not real happy coaching there. When John told me he was the choice to replace Richie, I said that I thought he would be a 10 year coach with much success. Will not find a nicer person/role model. We scrimmaged each other first couple of years and I thought Steve was solid. Kids played hard and appeared to enjoy his style of play. While I saw them play this year a few times, someone must of felt the team under performed. He will rebound somewhere, but I say he moves back to boys.

Coach Fifield tapped Yarmouth assistant Jordan to join him. She played for him I believe. Direct hire, not posted.
