North Myrtle Beach High School’s football coaching search is down to three.

Horry County Schools revealed the three finalists to The Sun News via email on Tuesday.

Blair Hardin, the head coach at Freedom High School in Morganton, N.C., Joey Price, the head coach at Wallace-Rose Hill High in Teachey, N.C., and Tommy Norwood, the head coach at Ragsdale High in Jamestown, N.C., are the finalists.

In the email, Horry County Schools said a recommendation should go to the school board on Monday night.

North Myrtle Beach Athletics Director Joe Quigley had said he was hoping to conduct the final interviews in the coming days.

The Chiefs are set to begin summer weight training next week.

The Chiefs began their search almost immediately after Perry Woolbright announced he was leaving for Batesburg-Leesville last month. Woolbright’s Chiefs were 0-20 combined in his first two seasons (2010, 2011) before finishing 5-5 in 2012 and 9-3 last fall.

North Myrtle Beach defeated Orangeburg-Wilkinson in a first-round playoff game.
