Trey Elder resigned as head coach last week after four years at the helm.
The head football coach position at Woodruff High School is moving rapidly.
Woodruff Athletic Director Mike Morris said Monday that the school had seen a good response to the job opening, and candidates are already being interviewed.
"There's been a tremendous response," he said. "We've had around 75 applications, and we've started the interview process. There are some really good candidates."
Trey Elder resigned as head coach last week after four years at the helm of the program. Elder is the new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at North Greenville University. He was the school's fifth head football coach since the end of the legendary W.L. Varner's tenure in 1996. Elder compiled a 28-19 record, going 10-2 in each of his first two seasons and winning a region title in 2015.
Morris said the school hopes to have a coach in place before Spring Break, which begins March 30.
