Perry top candidate at KO .... Seton-LaSalle might hire Montour assistant

Written by Mike White on .

Greg Perry resigned last week as Seton-LaSalle's football coach. But it looks like he won't have to go far for his next coaching job.

Just across the street.

Greg PerryPerry (pictured) has emerged as the leading candidate to be the next head coach at Keystone Oaks. Seton-LaSalle and Keystone Oaks are across the street from each other.

Keystone Oaks has not finalized things. The school board won't do that until next week. And you never know about coaching hires until the school board approves the hiring. Perry knows. He resigned at Seton-LaSalle last year and the Baldwin administration recommended that Perry be hired. But the Baldwin school board voted, 5-4, against hiring Perry and instead hired Pete Wagner. Perry eventually returned to Seton-LaSalle.

So nothing is official yet but Perry is most certainly the favorite to be the next Keystone Oaks coach.

Perry was Seton-LaSalle's coach for nine seasons. He was successful and became known for developing top passing quarterbacks.

Meanwhile, it is likely that Perry's successor at Seton-LaSalle will be Damon Rosol, the offensive coordinator at Montour. Seton-LaSalle's administration also hasn't finalized things, but Rosol is the top candidate. Seton-LaSalle might make a hire this week.

Rosol is a 1993 graduate of Seton-LaSalle and a former lineman for the Rebels. He was an assistant coach at Seton-LaSalle under Lou Cerro for eight seasons (1997-2004). When Cerro left to go to Montour, Rosol went with him and spent the past nine years as a Montour assistant.
