2014 will bring to the Gulf County School Board consideration on the directions for the county’s football programs.



Both head coaching jobs are becoming vacant come the end of the current school year.



Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School coach Chuck Gannon is in the last of his five years in the DROP program and can not return to a paid instructional or coaching position after his retirement in the spring.



Dennis Kizziah, head coach at Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School, will be in his final year in the DROP program during the 2014-2015 school year.



He has notified Superintendent of Schools Jim Norton that he is stepping down as head coach but would certainly be available to ease the transition to a new coach next season or to serve as an assistant.



Because Gannon will not be around in the fall, Norton said he would like to have a new coach in place by the start of spring football in May.



Time is less of an issue in Wewahitchka, Norton said, because Kizziah will be in place through the next school year.



Norton said he would hope to post the job opening and undertake the interviewing with the goal of having a new coach in place this summer and ready to start practice in the fall.
