Some movement with C-M football job

Canon-McMillan is inching closer toward hiring a football coach ... or at least that's the sense I'm getting from talking to a few sources.

It's all speculation at this point -- the only thing the school has told me is that this won't be a quick thing, and that refrain has been repeated for months -- but here's what I've heard from a few reliable sources.

I've heard the interviews have been whittled from nine to four, with former Moon coach Jon Miller and Montour offensive coordinator Damon Rosol the two most popular names ... at least the two that have been brought up the most.

The interviews were to take place early this week.

Miller was Moon's coach from 2008-10. Rosol has been a longtime assistant for Lou Cerro, both at Seton-La Salle and Montour.

I've also been told there are two out-of-area candidates: former West Middlesex coach Jason McElhaney and a coach from Texas. (Unsure whether the latter is an assistant or head coach. I've also heard that one of those final two dropped out.)

Miller has the most history here, but he could be the furthest away distance-wise. He's currently an assistant coach in Florida. He also spent time at Canon-Mac and Upper St. Clair before becoming the head coach at Moon.

Stay tuned on this one. Canon-Mac's school board meets April 2, 8 and 15, with that last date being the one where a candidate -- theoretically -- would be brought before the board.

UPDATE: Received an e-mail this morning that said the Texas candidate could be former Trinity quarterback Mike Wall, once thought to be a frontrunner for the now-filled gig at his alma mater. Wall played for Tulsa, throwing for 2,206 yards and 13 touchdowns in 26 games. An interesting idea, but not one I've found to have any merit.

  1. Surely this will consume some time. They want to pick the right one that will fit in the team and make it the best that they can be. Maybe you can search some coaches in
