Per Randy Kennedy, Mobile Press-Register Sports Editor.
Speaking today on WNSP’s Sports Drive (105.5 FM, Mobile, Alabama), Ray Perkins has reportedly been offered the head coaching job at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School, and he has agreed to the deal in principle.
McGill-Toolen Catholic is Mobile’s only Catholic High School and current AHSAA Director Steve Savarese coached there.
Kennedy said that before the show goes off the air tonight at 6:00 pm, the Press-Register and WNSP hoped to have a more definitive statement.
I hope McT understands what kind of guy Perkins is. When he was the Head Coach at Alabama, he once learned that there was a sports writer in Dothan who liked him.
Perkins legendarily drove from Tuscaloosa to the Wiregrass, just to piss that reporter off.
UPDATE March 30, 2011:Perkins has taken his name out of consideration for the job, according to Bob Grip of WALA Fox 10 News.
