Tillman May Be Headed to Wewahitchka

Wewahitchka, FL----The folks in Gulf County are working to fill two football head coaching vacancies there. One in Wewahitchka, the other at Port St. Joe.

Current Wewahitchka head coach Dennis Kizziah is going into the final year of his retirement DROP, will remain with the school, but not as head coach or A.D.

Gulf County Superintendent Jim Norton telling me Friday that Wewa job will be advertised through the end of next week.

I told him we had heard former Bozeman coach Loren Tillman was a leading candidate for the Wewa position. Mr. Norton said given coach Tillman's track record, and family ties to Wewahitchka, it's logical to believe he is strong candidate for the Gators.

Norton says they must finish advertising the job through next week, adding any school based hiring is subject to board approval. An announcement as to the Wewahitchka head coaching job could come as early as Friday the 17th.
