The search for an Athletic Director at North Little Rock High School is well underway.

Director of Human Resources Greg Thompson said his panel is in the middle of interviews this week and will continue into next week.

"We’ve advertised on our website," Thompson said, "and in the newspaper. We will advertise one more time and go from there."

So far Thompson said the pool is 10 applicants deep and his interview team is hard at work. That team consists of five former administrators, four of which were coaches at some point in their career.

Thompson said the team would rank the applicants after the interview process and submit to the superintendent, who will then make recommendations to the board.

While Thompson admitted they are still a ways from naming the Charging Wildcats’ new AD, he said they are well into the process.

"The list of applicants seems to grow every day," Thompson said. "By this time next week, we should have a clearer picture."
