According to Russell athletic director Sam Sparks, the search for the school’s next football coach should be over by the end of the month.
“Our goal is to have a coach in place by March 1 and we think we can make that happen,” Sparks wrote in an email.
Sparks also said that Russell has received several applicants and has conducted some interviews.
The job will be posted until Feb. 20.
Russell hasn’t hired a head football coach since 1976, when Ivan McGlone began his 38-year career.
McGlone was relieved of his duties in January.
