Albany - Monday is when high school football teams can begin conditioning work in preparation for practice that begins the following week.
The Albany High Indians will begin conditioning drills without a head coach. Dougherty County school system athletic director Johnny Seabrooks says it will be next Friday at the earliest before the school board can vote on for head coach for the 2005 season.
After this season over, the system will then hire a permanent head coach.
Albany High assistant coaches will handle the conditioning work which Seabrooks considers very important because he wants to make sure that the players are phyically ready for the full pad practices that begin on July 25th.
Seabrooks would not discuss just where the selection process stands for an interim head coach.
The deadline to apply was last Saturday and Seabrooks would not say how many candidates applied for the job and whether there have of those candidates have been interviewed.
The Albany High job became open when Scott Horton was named assistant principal at the school last month.
