SPORTS >> Falcons narrow coaching search

Leader sportswriter

North Pulaski High School is close to having a new varsity football coach. The position, which is also tied to a math teaching position, received a number of applications, but only 12 of the applicants had the proper credentials.

Those 12 were narrowed down to three initially, and North Pulaski principal Tracy Allen told The Leader that a tentative selection has been made. He added that the school was awaiting superintendent and school board approval. Allen plans to have a press conference to announce the new coach once the selection is made official.

The job became available when Tony Bohannon resigned soon after the end of the 2008 football season. The Falcons suffered a 1-9 record. Bohannon went 5-65 in seven years as Falcons coach.
