BRADENTON, Fla. -- Manatee High School has plenty of options to choose from in its search to replace football head coach Joe Kinnan for the upcoming season.

As we first told you late last week, Kinnan -- who has led the program to five state championships -- is taking a one-year medical leave.

Now the school's athletic director tells the Bradenton Herald that he's already received some 70 resumes to fill the position. Those resumes are coming from all over the country, and from coaches who have college, or even arena football league experience.

Internal candidates who have worked under Kinnan are also being considered.

Those interviews will be held Friday.
