Manila School Board hires coach Bill Taylor
Manila School Board members met three nights last week conducting interviews with four applicants in an effort to fill the high school boys basketball coach position. Coaches interviewed included Brad Phillips, James Smith, Jason Durham and Bill Taylor.
Following a two hour executive session Saturday night, Board members voted 5-2 to hire Bill Taylor as high school basketball coach, and his wife, Linda Taylor, as teacher in the elementary/middle school for the 2009-2010 school year.
Board members Steve Metheny and Brandon Veach cast the no votes, with Johnny McCain, Tracey Reinhart, Tony Crowell, Danny Robbins and Jackie Hill voting yes.
