Rumors circulating about possible new coaches at Martha Layne Collins High School are very premature.

The school, which will open next year, is nowhere near hiring coaches.

According to Gary Kidwell, Shelby County Public Schools' director of Student Accounting and Support Services, the new school won't be hiring until next year.

"The rumors are absolutely untrue," he said. "The positions at the school [both coaching and teaching] have not even been posted yet. I know he [Principal Anthony Hatchell] has received some calls from teachers and coaches inquiring about positions, but our plan is post those jobs in earl to mid January and try to hire sometime in February."
