Seahawks Set to Announce New Football Coach

Santa Rosa Beach, FL--It hasn't taken the folks at South Walton to decide on a new head football coach and athletic director.

The school will introduce that new coach and A.D. Thursday morning at 9 am in it's field house.

South Walton forced to fill those posts after Bill Wiles left after just one year on the job there to head back to the Gainesville area.

Time was an issue since fall practice begins in a couple of weeks. Advertising for the job ended Tuesday and after looking at about two dozen resumes, they've hired the new coach.

Vice Principal Jimmy Ross telling me that new coach is from within our area, and again we'll find out who he is come Thursday morning.
