HARVEST, Ala.(WHNT)-Sparkman High School is searching for its fourth head football coach in the last four years after their latest hire abruptly quit three months into the job.

Sparkman Principal Michael Campell said now former head coach Bo Culver submitted his resignation last week in order to take the head coaching job at Haleyville High School, but the circumstances behind Culver’s departure remain somewhat unclear.

Campbell declined to talk on camera, and would only say that the move involved a family situation that he could not elaborate on. Coach Culver was not available for comment. He was hired by Sparkman in January, and worked as the offensive coordinator at Florence High School last season.

Football team parents planned on holding a special meeting in the school library Thursday night. Officials with the school’s booster program declined to comment on what the meeting was about.

Principal Campbell said the next head football coach would be hired “very soon”, with two unnamed finalists from the last coaching search at Sparkman both being considered.

The Senators have won a total of just four games over the last three seasons, and have not had a winning season since 2006.
