"Believe this: We have extensively checked into these people and went two to three years back to where they've been," Day said. "We talked to people in the community and talked to people in the Chamber of Commerce, in the school, the secretaries, the players and all that. We have done a deep background search on a lot of people, and that's why some people got eliminated and some people didn't.

"I just praise our committee for the extensive work they've done in putting the time and effort into this."

Interviewing for the nine finalists started Friday with Grant and Martin meeting with the committee. Bennett, Hatten, Klees and Patten will interview Sunday. The committee was still trying to arrange times for Metzger, Coe and Ramsay to come in sometime next week, Day said.

The committee has a list of six to eight questions the finalists will be asked. The questions deal with everything from promoting athletes from all Crestview sports for recruiting to discipline and budget issues.

Deadline approaches

Committee members want the search to end next week, but they don't feel pressured to meet the deadline for the March 11 school board meeting, Day said.
