Albany- Northeast Macon head coach Carror Wright makes no secret his desire to coach here in Albany.
That is evident by the fact that Wright has applied for both head coaching jobs at Dougherty and Monroe.
And the former Dougherty High assistant coach will get to interview for both jobs next week after being selected as one of five finalists for the Trojans and Tornadoes coaching vacancies.
Carror Wright, who was a finalist for the job at Westover last year, wants to coach in Albany because his family lives here and is daughter attends Westover High.
Wright has been the coach at Northeast Macon since the mid 1990's and has led the Raiders to a 28-17 win and with four straight playoff appearances.

The other four candidates for the Dougherty position are Irwin County assistant David Boland, Charles Keene from Oglethorpe County, Brad Bradley from Virginia and Mike Bates from Alabama.
Like Wright, David Boland is a finalist for the Monroe head coaching job.
Another strong candidate will be current Tornado assistant Coleman Camp.
Cedar Shoals assistant Terry Turner and Tommy Keeler from Florida are also finalists for the Monroe job.
Interviews for both jobs will take place on Monday with the goal of having the school board approve the new coaches at their meeting a week from Monday.
