Canon-McMillan could name a varsity head football coach as early as Monday, but the number of candidates to draw from isn't what one might expect for a Class AAAA school in the WPIAL.
Jobs like the one at Canon-McMillan often draw 60-70 applicants. Ringgold said it received 80-plus applications for its vacant football position.
Canon-McMillan received 17 applications, some from states as far away as Maine, Texas and Mississippi after Guy Montecalvo resigned last month. Montecalvo is Canon-McMillan's athletic director.
One possible reason for the lack of interest is the lack of a teaching position to go with the job.
* Alex Adams, a junior at Canon-McMillan, is drawing interest from Division I school as a running back.
Adams (5-11, 200) is strong and fast and he'll likely get a chance to be the Big Macs' featured running back with the impending graduations of Mike Hull and Chad Hagan.
Bowling Green, which landed Wash High's Bryan Thomas as part of its 2010 recruiting class, may offer soon and Adams plans on attending camp there in early June. Cincinnati, Connecticut and Pitt have all visited with Adams.
