One of a number of former assistants during the Brown, Rattay era will show interest. Coach Z now at Chavez as the DC could apply but does he go back down to 2a, Tim Kohner a former all state wr has been a assistant at a few schools since leaving PC and has ties to many booster club and school officials, Coach Conder now a coordinator in Texas at a very successful program would be crazy to throw his name in the hat but he is also a former all state Qb for the cougars and can get things going if allowed too. He has been offered other jobs around the state and turned them down.
PC's former head coach is the new principal at Scottsdale Christian. Not even coaching. Guess he wanted to be in administration. He had good assistants when they went to the state title game a few years ago. They all left for one reason or another.
The wheels seem to have fallen off PC's wagon. I remember watching them play Mogollon in the state championship one year thinking that they must have switched places with a juco team on the way to the stadium. I'm not familiar with them more recently, but I know they have a state title or two in the past couple years.

Brandon is a long time Pop warner coach believe it or not? Coached 1 year at Desert Vista for Dan Hinds after further research it didn't end very well, comes from most recently a Prep school in New York but don't know what position he held or his record, hopefully he can put together a good staff and attract some athletes to turn that thing around! PC had a number of qualified applicants but decided to go with Coach Harris. Good Luck!
How does PC make the SAME mistake TWICE!?!?! How embarrassing! You would think they would have learned with Denson/Rattay what happens to a school when you disregard the football program that for so many years was the LIFE BLOOD of that school. How they think they can get kids in by hiring Brandon who?? is beyond me. This isn't the Christian School of 15 years ago with little options and PC being the biggest Christian school in town. Nowadays YOU (PC) better have a reason for me to drive 45 min in traffic and pass at least 1 if not 2 christian schools that have just as good atheltics as you and in a better part of town!! PC should be ashamed that they let ALL their great alumni go (VC, NWCC, SCA, Joy etc) and have not and dont know how to get them back. With hires like this its no wonder they are HANGING by a thread. I would love to know who was involved with this process, probably the same ones involved with the last one. If Conder showed interest at all (which is beyond me with that ADMIN) an Alumni with great experience to help revive and bring back alumni and kids doesnt get the job hands down then God Speed PC......welcome to being a school with no softball, football and being the next westwind of 2A!
He did a good job in NY. Based on maxpreps it seemed they played in a private school league and when they went to the playoffs only 4 teams played. Out of those 3 years I looked they lost 1st game and in 1 year they won the championship. So it seems he has some experience.
To be quite honest PC wouldn't have been able to pay me anywhere close to what I'm making at my present school in Texas I'm very content where I'm at. I applied more for the experience and process and knowing that I would have a legit shot at going quite far in the process and I did. PC in a program on life support and the aumni actually care that the school and program can make a comeback. Im not sure that these are friends of mine or not I'm pretty much out of the loop in regards to Az presently but the fact remainds I would have had a much better shot if I could have lied on my resume but I guess I dont have to.
While Harris did achieve some notable success while at Canisius, there's no question that some of his listed accomplishments/resume claims have been significantly embellished. This is coming from someone who has been following Phoenix area football for almost 20 years (posting from my wife's account name btw). These misrepresentations by him are not surprising and are nothing new - while he may be a decent high school football coach, having known him through mutual friends for a long time has shown there is not much else to his personal character or integrity off the field to speak of... just a grossly inflated ego. Good luck with that PC.
