Interviews set next week for PHS grid coach
Applications are being taken this week, and interviews will
be conducted next week for the vacant head football coaching position
at Pecos High School, athletic director Bubba Williams said today.
The position came open last week when Gary Grubbs resigned
after three years on the job to take the head coach and athletic director's
position at Eldorado High School south of San Angelo.
"We'll close the applications this Friday and start interviewing
next Wednesday," Williams said today. "We've already had
several applicants from the surrounding area."
"We want to try and make the choice sometime soon, so they can get
with the kids," Williams said of the
selection process, which would then have to be approved by the
Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD school board. The board's next scheduled meeting is July 11,
but superintendent Don Love said board members might make their final
decision before that time.
The new head football coach will be the fifth in the past 10 years
for the Eagles, after having only two head coaches the previous
