In early November, the tennis head coaching position (high school)
became available in our school district. I was
actually subbing at Brady's school that
day when the secretary gave me the heads up.
I think before the day was over, Eric had faxed
his application to the district office.
To say he was excited is a huge understatement!
Eric waited and waited....and finally had his interview
one day last week. He sat in the office as three other
canidates (that he knows of) interviewed before him.
His 3:30 interview turned into 4:30...
as the other interviews ran longer.
After 22 minutes with the principal and athletic director,
he was on his way home.
Eric went into the interview prepared and confident.
And then, he spent the entire weekend
driving me crazy
analyzing why he might or might not get the job.
We didn't tell Brady anything.
He didn't know that Coach Ben was leaving
and he didn't know that Eric had an interview.
Finally, on Tuesday afternoon, Eric got a phone call
and was offered the position! He called me right away.
I was so excited for him and relieved. I know how
much he wanted this. Eric could not wait to get
home from work to tell Brady!
Eric is already busy preparing....the boys season starts in just two months.
He has big shoes to fill with this tennis program.
But, I believe it won't take him long.
He's an excellent coach and amazing with the kids.
And, he's already good to go with a super cute manager and ball boy!
