Jerome Woods confirmed to AL.com Monday morning that he is officially opening the head football job to recruiters.
In 2021, former coach Dedrick Sumpter led the Leopards interim, and took over in August after Lev Holly took an administrative job in Mobile County.
I'm not saying that I'm a coach, but I'm seeing who will apply and go there. We're officially opening the job said Woods. We've already opened the job, reciting the old news, and extending our experience to the best available candidates.
St. Michael coach joined ESPN2 tonight.
Woods said the application process will remain open through the Super 7 in early December.
As long as it's finished, we hope to narrow the candidates and work quickly, she said. "We hope to have a coach in place before the new year."
The Leopards went 3-7 this year, losing the first three games of the season and the last three of the season. The Leopards missed the playoffs for just the second time since 2006.
We have huge talent and will be looking for the correct candidate to harness that and take the program where it needs to be.
