LONOKE — The position of Lonoke Jackrabbits football coach is officially open.
Superintendent Dr. Suzanne Bailey said, via email, that the school district will start looking for a permanent replacement for Doug Bost, who resigned as head coach Sept. 27, four weeks into the 2016 season.
“We are going to open the position and will be planning the interview process in the near future,” Bailey said.
Bost was replaced on an interim basis by defensive coordinator Taggart Moore. Lonoke finished the season 2-8 after starting 1-3 under Bost.
During his tenure, Bost was 46-39, highlighted by a Class 4A state runner-up finish in 2009. The Jackrabbits lost to Shiloh Christian in the state title game.
