Bishop Dwenger and New Haven both continue to work the process as they search for their next head football coaches.

According to Bishop Dwenger Athletic Director John Bennett, last Friday was the final day in which those interested could send in applications. As of late last week, close to 20 applications had been received.

“Over the next two weeks we will narrow it down to a small amount to interview at the beginning of February and make a decision by mid-February,” Bennett said.

The Saints are in the market for a new coach after Chris Svarczkopf stepped down from the position in November after 15 years at the helm.

Meanwhile, New Haven is looking to replace Jim Rowland, who resigned in December after 17 years of leading the Bulldogs.

According to New Haven Athletic Director Andrew Wagner, “several” candidates have e-mailed the school in regards to the open position.

“I will be meeting with a small committee to determine those that will be interviewed,” Wagner said. “The plan will be to begin interviews the week of Jan. 29.”

The only other area football job that remains to be filled is Southern Wells, which is working to replace the departed Steve Yencer.

Greg Moe stepped down as head coach of Central Noble in December. He has been replaced by assistant coach Trevor Tipton.
