Dooly County Searches for New Head Football Coach

Away from politics for a minute:

The deadline to make application for the Dooly County High head football coaching job that opened when Darryl Silas resigned last month arrives tomorrow.

At mid-week, Dooly school superintendent Dr. Grady Miles said 34 coaches “including some very good ones” had expressed interest in filling the vacancy.

“Right now,” Miles said, “my plans are to screen the applications and reduce them to about 10 candidates. I will interview those 10 myself.

“From there, I plan to select a final three who will be asked to participate in a community forum so that if they truly want to come here they can disclose how they plan to bring about a winning team.

“Members of the community will also be given an opportunity to express what they want in the football program but they will not be given the chance to question the candidates in an organized Q&A (question and answer) session.”

Following that forum, Miles said he will conduct a second round of interviews before recommending the applicant he feels best suited for the position to the school board.

“I really don’t have a timeline for all of this to take place, but I do hope to hire someone before spring practice is held,” Miles said. “If we can’t hire someone by the third week of March when our school board meets, we should at least be able to make a decision soon after that.”

In submitting his resignation as the Bobcats’ head grid coach but not as the school’s athletic director or an American government classroom instructor, Silas cited “personal reasons” for his decision to step down.

During his six-year tenure, he led Dooly to a 5-5 finish a year ago and an overall record of 37-27, including a forfeit win this past season over Macon County

I wonder if there is anyone from the Macon Co. Football Staff is considering this job. It's a great opportunity.
