Perry County will be looking for a new head football coach after Billy Sawyer served as the interim coach in 2013.

Sawyer was given the interim tag after former coach Michael Harrison resigned a week before the season started last August.

Harrison was 31-34 in his time at Perry County and is now a Metro Nashville police officer.

Sawyer has been in the Perry a County coaching staff the last eight years led the Vikings to a 3-7 record in 2013 after winning just two games in 2012.

"It was easy just to make Coach Sawyer the interim coach and go through the year, last year because of the late resignation," Perry County principal Michael Rhodes said.

"Coach Sawyer took a tough situation and made it a good year for the kids and we appreciate all his hard work."

"We are going to take resumes until January 15 and see what type of candidates we get in the process."

The Vikings hope to make a coaching hire before they start spring practice in late February or early March.

Perry County has missed the Class 1A playoffs the last two years after making
three straight playoff appearances (2009-11) and the Vikings made the Semifinals and produced a school record best 11-2 record in 2010.
