Has Elysian Fields Re-opened Coaching Search?
Friday, 12th April 2013 - 3:48PM
*Updated, Thursday, April 11th*

I spoke with the remaining finalist, Jeff Rogers this morning, he still hasn't heard back from anyone at Elysian Fields.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are re-opening the search and/or if Rogers himself decides to withdraw his name from consideration.

My email to superintendent Maynard Chapman have not been returned.

And, Michael Garland, of our staff reported this just a few minutes ago.

Elysian Fields has re-opened the search, that's confirmed.

And, Blue Ridge assistant coach Jeff Rogers had not heard from anyone at Elysian Fields as of 11:30am today.
