Newton-Conover High School will be looking for its next head football coach after all.

In a text to the O-N-E, Newton-Conover Athletic Director John Echerd, said that the position is open. He added the school hopes to take a name to Monday's school board meeting.

The school was interviewing possible candidates on Wednesday.

Matt Beam resigned May 2 after leading the program at N-CHS for the past four seasons. The school then named Darren Ponder as the interim head coach for the 2018 season.

This is an ongoing story and will be updated.
