Trigg County High School Principal Shannon Burcham says a new football coach could be in place by the end of this week.
Burcham said on the Saturday Morning Sports Report on WKDZ that around 20 people have applied for the job, although none are current high school head coaches.
Burcham coached the Wildcats to a 26-22 record in four seasons before taking the principal's job at the high school earlier this month. The current staff has been running the team during practice until a new head coach is named.
He also said when the new coach is named, it will be for the long haul and not just for a one year deal.
Burcham also talked about the search for a new assistant athletic director, which should be named this week, and a new athletic director to replace Jim Perrin.
Trigg County opens their football season Aug. 19 against Russellville.
