                  Yes, Fred is the winner! Harry Johnson, coach at South Eugene High School of the MacChesneys, Craig Brigham and Dirk Lakeman among others was the first coach of Athletics West when the club started in 1977.

                        Yes, Henry (Is this the real HM? Hmmm..), his term was not very long. About two years I believe. Than Dick Quax came in, and after that Dick Brown and finally I believe Bob Sevene. As a side note when Nike dispanded AW in their press release they mentioned all the former coaches except Johnson. A soviet style of rewriting history.

                          dick brown came in 1978 not as a coach but to run the "east german" aspect of AW. Quax came in 80 or 81, Sevene the same.

                            Kinky wouldn't happen to be Kevin MacCarey. If so, you certainly know what you are talking about.

                              In reality, HJ was not fired but moved to a marketing position within the company in Portland. He continued a successful career with Nike until his retirement in the late 90's.

                              Additionally, his tenure at AW was 1977-1980.
