FLORENCE (FOX19) - Boone County is set to name Jeff Griffith its new head football coach.
Griffith, who athletic director Jon Smith says still needs board approval, is the defensive coordinator at Bowling Green High School.
Griffith has held that position the past 11 years and has helped the Purples to back-to-back state championships.
Smith said the school received around 40 applications for the opening. Long time coach Rick Thompson left earlier this year to coach at Mt. St. Joseph.
