Not that this is necessarily the case, but usually when a posting is open this long, they are trying to attach a teaching position to it. I think it is by February that teachers let their districts know if they are a)not looking for a job elsewhere and are returning, b) Looking for work but likely returning, or c)they will definitely not be back. If they can't find a potential opening there, they have to look at budget/enrollment predictions and retirement declarations. Any way you look at it, it is a bad situation for the football program.
Cascade recently hired with a "teaching position to be named" for the chosen candidate. Smaller districts don't have that luxury.
Any way you look at it, though, they have waited too long. There are so many things that have already needed to be addressed in an offseason, such as lifting, equipment orders, staying on to of kids' grades, etc.
If either of those positions closed ASAP - Monday (4/9), the district would take days to review and invite for interviews, conduct the interviews, and make their selection (if the first person offered accepts), making the official decision - at the earliest - would be 4/20. That would only be 5 weeks until spring camp. That isn't much time for a new coach to come in and get ready.
I don't see either one doing this ASAP. We are 7 weeks from spring camp right now. The hiring process, once the position closes is usually about 2 weeks. Do the math. Every week that goes by handcuffs the new staff more. If we reach May, and they still haven't hired, the "joke show" chants can begin.
