A second round of interviews with Heber Springs High School head football coaching candidates will be held on Wednesday.
The five-member search committee met last week after the initial interviews of six candidates in December.
Assistant coach Will Cox was named interim head coach in July, replacing Darren Gowen, who resigned in June.
Heber Springs finished the season at 4-7.
Superintendent Dr. Alan Stauffacher earlier said he expected a recommendation for the school board’s January 20 meeting. Stauffacher said the recommendation may be delayed.
Athletic director Brad Reese, high school principal Marc Griffin, former school board member Richard Whybrew, current board member Dr. Ryan Buffalo, coach Jay Bishop and Stauffacher comprise the committee.
