Jordan set to be announced as new head coach at Port St. Joe

PORT ST. JOE, FL (WJHG/WECP) You could say it is all but official.

Greg Jordan is moving south from Blountstown to be the next head coach at Port St. Joe.

Remember Tuesday night we told you about coach Jordan resigning as Blountstown's head coach and A.D.

And that it was logical to think the motivation for that move was the opening at St. Joe. Well Thursday Gulf County Superintendent Jim Norton, confirmed to us coach Jordan's name was recommended by St. Joe Principal Josh Dailey. Mr. Norton will now forward that recommendation for final approval from the full school board, which is expected. So soon after 8 a.m. eastern time Friday morning, Greg Jordan's hire will be official.

Mr. Norton tells us he informed coach Jordan of the move at 1:39 Thursday afternoon. He says Jordan and his wife will be at Friday morning's school board meeting to meet all the members. The new coach won't be able to meet the team until Monday since Port. St. Joe High School is closed Friday due to the flu.

Jordan was 102-42 with 11 playoff appearances and two state title game berths in 12 seasons at Blountstown.

The St. Joe job came open after John Palmer, who twice led the Sharks to state championships, had to step down because of medical concerns.
