East Wake coaches signal to their players from the sidelines.

Wake County Public Schools posted the head football coaching position at East Wake High School as open on Wednesday morning.

Jimmy Williams submitted his resignation on Monday, stepping down as the head football coach of the Warriors after 15 years at the helm. He will stay at East Wake as a teacher and associate athletic director, and may also look for other administrative opportunities.

East Wake athletic director Jonathan Hasbrouck said Monday he wants to get the process going as quick as possible to find a new coach. Posting the job as vacant is the first step in hiring a new coach.

Hasbrouck said the school would be looking "at all avenues" to find the next football coach at East Wake.
