LIBERTY — The Casey County boys basketball team is still without a coach, but a hire is drawing nearer.
Casey principal Tim Goodlett said the school board is still accepting applications for the position, but he hopes to have someone in place by the end of next week.
“The job is still posted,” Goodlett said. “We’ve gotten some applications, and we’re going to start going through those by the end of this week.”
Former coach Shawn Conley was fired last month after compiling a 33-79 record in four years with the Rebels.
Goodlett said about six applications have been accepted, including some from inside the system. The school system has just one teaching job — at the alternative school — available, which could affect the hiring of someone from outside the school system.
