Cumberland County High School has opened its search for the Jets’ next head football coach.
Principal Jon Hall says the school is still in the early stages of the search process.
“We haven’t really set a timeline. We’re going to look and see what applicants we get and when we think we have what we feel is the best applicant we’ll go from there,” Hall says.
Hall says the school will continue to weigh their options as applications are submitted.
“I’ll be honest, I don’t know that we have any set requirements. We kind of look at each resume individually and see what their qualifications are,” Halls says. “We would prefer to have a teacher in the building even though state guidelines say it doesn’t have to be a certified teacher. It’d just be easier if the head coach is in the building, can meet the kids, and talk.”
The next head coach will oversee a Jets team that finished the 2018 season 1-9 with their lone win being a forfeit from Powell. Four of the team’s losses were shutouts as the Jets failed to score more than 14 points in a game all season.
