Albany-Nine finalists have been selected for a second round of interviews in hopes of finding a new head football coach at Monroe High.
Carror Wright was the choice after the first round of interviews but he chose the opening at Dougherty and was approved for that job by the school board last week.
The field in the second round of finalists includes seven candidates who are or have been head coaches.
It also includes current Tornado assistant Coleman Camp who was finalist in the first round of interviews but was not selected.
The other candidate hoping to land his first head coaching job is Kerry English who is currently an assistant coach at Thomasville High.
Other candidates include former Sumter County head coach Charles Truitt, former Albany State assistant and current Baldwin High head coach Jesse Hicks.
Others with head coaching experience who will interview include Central Macon's Anthony Hines, Price Jones who resigned last week at Pelham, former Terrell County head football coach Ronald Graham, Roy Hutchins who is head coach in Arkansas and Jesse Solomon who is a head coach in Riveria Beach, Florida.
The nine candidates will interview next week and a new coach for Monroe is expected to be submitted to the Dougherty County school board at their March 8th meeting.
