Football: North Little Rock reopens coaching search

The North Little Rock School District has again posted an opening for a head high school football coach.

This is the third time the job has been posted since J.R. Eldridge unexpectedly left for Farmington last December in his first year at the school. Eldridge replaced Jamie Mitchell, who was at North Little Rock for five years.

In those six years, North Little Rock played for the 7A title five consecutive times, winning once.

The job was posted Friday, May 7 and it lists Tuesday, May 11 as the closing date.
