The new year will bring consideration to the Gulf County School Board on new high school football coaches.

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 two successful seasons as the head coach, Gannon said he might consider returning as a volunteer assistant – much like Coach Kesley Colbert – but will cross that bridge if and when he comes upon it.

Dennis Kizziah, head coach at Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School and 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.

The timeframe for hiring a new coach is different at each school, Norton said.
