Ely football taking resumes

Blanche Ely athletic director Connie McGirt sent out a release today, announcing the school is taking applications for its football coaching position, which opened when James Jones resigned last month after one year at the helm.

Resumes can be sent to McGirt at 1201 NW 6th Avenue in Pompano Beach (33060) or at connie.mcgirt@browardschools.com, and will be accepted through June 18.

Whoever lands the position will take over a team that went 6-5 last year (losing to eventual 5A state champion St. Thomas Aquinas by just one point in the regional quarterfinals), but won't have LSU-bound defensive back Patrick Johnson. Still, senior-to-be Michael Carter -- Broward's No. 4 recruit, according to Larry Blustein's rankings -- returns to the defensive backfield.
