With the eve of the regular season approaching, the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs are still looking for coaches for their football team.
A staff that had already lost six coaches, including head coach Marco Ricci, took another hit recently with the news that offensive co-ordinator Cory Prokop is unable to continue coaching due to work commitments.
Prokop had been slated to replace Randy Labrecque in running the offence.
A new coach will be taking over Prokop's duties. The Elecs brought on Rob Embree, who has previously coached at Weyburn Composite and Shaunavon, as their new offensive line coach. He has now been promoted to offensive co-ordinator.
The Elecs' coaching staff currently is comprised of Mark Schott (head coach), Embree, Brian Dueck (defensive co-ordinator), Sean Mustatia (receivers), Blaine Weyland (defensive line), Chris Toth (defensive backs), Chris Bayerle (strength and conditioning) and Bob Lawrence (trainer).
At the moment, offensive backs and the offensive line will be managed in a joint effort among offensive coaches.
The linebackers will be coached jointly by the defensive coaches.
The team is still looking for more coaches on either side of the ball.
Schott said the squad is ideally looking for people with experience playing or coaching the game, but it is not a requirement.
Anyone interested is asked to contact Schott via e-mail at mark.sch...@cornerstonesd.ca as soon as possible, although there is no deadline for applicants to express interest.
The Elecs will begin the season on Sept. 8, when they host Weyburn in the first-ever instalment of the new rivalry. Weyburn joined the Moose Jaw High School Football League this year after exiting the Regina league.
