After the passing of Coach Rob Reader earlier this past season, Knights Athletic Director Michael Holt stepped in as interim football coach for the remainder of the season.

Who are the likely candidates to see applying for the job at Marion County?

Who ever the Knights pick, it needs to be someone with a strong backbone.  They need to have the guts to say it is their program, if you don't like the rules then you can't be part of it.  Someone to take a big part in the little league and middle school programs.  There are athletes in Marion County, they just need some discipline and tough love.  I don't see them getting an established coach, it probably will be an up and coming first time head coach.

I could see Mike Griffiths going for this job. He has ties to the school and its a short trip for him to make and he knows how to coach smaller rural schools. I think it would be a good fit.

This is certainly not as "bad" of a job as it seems on paper. Marion County definitely has the guys to field a solid team; someone just has to get them out. Playing 4A football with a roster just over 30 kids is very tough. But if you get some new guys out and have some decent X's and O's that district looks very winnable. I'm interested to see who they move forward with.

I think he has burned his bridges in Marion County.  Don't see it happening.  

Caught wind of what occurred last season so I would doubt he’s going to apply this time around.

I agree with all of this. Marion County has had moments of success throughout their history but have struggled of late. That said, they've also had two different head coaches pass away due to cancer in the last decade, which is almost unfathomable. The right person can be successful at Marion but this is an important hire for the trajectory of their program.
