In a phone call, West Johnston's principal told parents the sheriff's office and State Bureau of Investigation are following all leads.

Holly Springs High School is looking for a new head girls basketball coach.

Shay Hayes led the Golden Hawks as the head girls basketball coach last season, but according to East Carolina University, Hayes has been hired as an assistant coach with the Pirates.

The Wake County Public Schools listed the position as open on Monday.

Hayes played college basketball at East Carolina under head coach Anne Donovan. While at ECU, Hayes earned four letters and led the team in steals during her senior season. During the same season, Hayes helped the Pirates to a CAA Tournament final.

Hayes has strong ties to Greenville, having coached at Farmville Central High School from 1998-2006 before going to Holly Springs.

Holly Springs was 8-17 last season and finished with a 7-9 record in the Tri-9 4-A Conference. Hayes had been at the school for four years. The Hawks made the N.C. High School Athletic Association state playoffs last season but lost to Enloe in the first round.

The N.C. High School Athletic Association will meet on Tuesday with football coaches from the state about the proposed pod playoff system.

According to Rick Strunk, the associate executive director of the NCHSAA, the coaches are being asked to provide feedback, suggestions and ideas about the proposed system. Those ideas would then be brought to the Board of Directors for consideration.

The change would mean instead of dividing the playoffs into east and west divisions, they would be divided into east, mideast, midwest and west divisions. The goal of the system is to limit travel time and cost in the earlier rounds of hte playoffs.

The pod playoff system is expected to be implemented in time for the 2010 playoffs which start in November.

At the same meeting last month, the NCHSAA voted to change the length of football season from 12 weeks to
