Bellaire High is in the market for a new head football coach. That is not good news for the Big Reds' Nation as a good man and superb coach has opted to exit. Jose Davis is without question one of the all-time Bellaire High grid greats. He also distinguished himself as a brilliant coach. Davis took over a tattered grid program and restored the swagger. He led the Big Reds to the state playoffs the last two seasons, a venue that was commonplace under legendary coach John Magistro, but disappeared after his retirement. Davis is leaving the program in much better shape than the one the inherited. Although all-Ohio and record-setting quarterback Spencer Badia and some other talented seniors graduate, the cupboard is far from bare. Davis also re-instilled the winning attitude that was long synonymous with Bellaire High football. Davis's decision to leave creates a major problem for the Bellaire Board of Education. Quality head football coaches are not easy to find in the Ohio Valley. They are gems that you want to hold onto. If I was on the Bellaire High football search committee there is one name on my short list of quality coaches who I would aggressively pursue. Mark Cisar is a great fit for Bellaire football. The former Magnolia High grid great would be a seamless replacement. He has successful head coaching experience, is an offensive guru and is a player's coach. He is also available. Bellaire would be hard-pressed to find a better option than Mark Cisar. He could also bring with him a tremendous assistant coach, his father.
