New EHS coach to be in place by March?
By: TODD RUTH Review Sports Editor email@example.com, Staff Writer
The search for Ephrata’s new head football coach is "pretty much right on schedule," according to Athletic Director Tommy Long. "Hopefully by the February or March board meeting we’ll have the person. "We are right on track in terms of that."
The position became open when four-year Coach Jim Vieland resigned in mid-November. Under Vieland, the Mounts went 5-35 overall, including a 1-9 campaign this past year.
According to Long, a total of 14 candidates have applied for the position. He was asked where the process is at this point.
"We have completed the first round of interviews," Long said. "We interviewed right before Christmas break just like we planned. That information was then turned over to the District Office and they are reviewing it. We really don’t have a timetable yet whether we are going to pull people in for a second interview or whether we are going to interview everybody…Some of those things are still up in the air, but we are pretty much right on schedule of where we planned it out to be."
Long said in the interim, coaches Josh Clair and Jesse Reider, members of Vieland’s staff, have put together a weight lifting program for the players to follow so they are getting their work in int he off-season.
"We felt that was important," Long said. "The kids are in the weight room because coaches Clair, Reider and even Vieland are continuing to keep the weight room up and running. The kids aren’t missing any of that type of stuff. They put together the same weight room workout package as if they would have been coming back to coach for sure next year so the kids have something they are working on and are not missing anything."
After spending the last two seasons in Section One, Ephrata will return to Section Two starting next season. More COACH, page B-3
