Panama City Beach, FL---The search process to find a new head football coach for Arnold is well under way.
Principal Keith Bland telling Newschannel 7 Sports Monday he's received some 45 applications so far with five to ten inquiries coming in it seems every day.
Mr. Bland says they will continue to accept resumes through the end of this week, and then he, his assistant principal and his athletic director will go through all the applications, and they hope to narrow the list down to five.
With those five coming in for face to face interviews with an interview committee that will expand to include a faculty member, a team parent, perhaps another person from the community.
Bland says they've had interest from coaches throughout our area, from around the state and even plenty from out of state.
The hope is to finish the interviews by the end of the month and have a new coach named by early February, with that new coach starting work March first. We'll keep you up to date as this process continues.
