* In three months, the 2015 Alabama High School football season will begin. Accoridng to media reports, 10 schools statewide have work to get done in getting the head coaching position filled so summer workouts can get started prior to fall practice that will begin August 3.

 Vinemont High School currently has an interim situation with Matt Norris handling duties until the school either names him permanent or has a replacement announced later. The school is having to wait until the 2014-15 year ends then can evaulate the situation through what teaching slots open for next year.

 Personnel are hired first to teach then coaching positions are filled by the school.

 While Vinemont is waiting for this process, another school in the county is trying to put together a game plan with an opponent having the position unoccupied at the present time.

 Cold Springs is scheduled to kick off the 2015 slate on August 21 at Brillant High School. The Tigers currently have no head coach and are hoping to get the position filled in the next meeting of the Marion County School system in June.

This will be the first time Cold Springs has ever played at Brillant. The two met last season with the Eagles winning at home 25-7. Jarrod Helms coached the Tigers from 2011-14 with Brillant going just 14-28 and making the 1A playoffs one time.

* ARAB - After taking part in a jamboree last week that included playing a half against the Cold Springs Eagles, Brindlee Mountain coach Chris Littleton submitted his resignation when the Lions returned from this jamboree at Clements High School in Limestone County. 

 Cold Springs shut out Brindlee Mountain 20-0 in a half of competition. The Lions' junior varsity also lost 6-0 to the Cold Springs JV.

 Littleton had been the head coach at BM for two years, producing only four wins. The Lions will kick off the 2015 season on August 28 with a trip to Thomas-Michelfelder Field to take on the Holly Pond Broncos.

 No timetable has been set when a successor will be named to replace Littleton.
