Gainesville High School didn't take long and didn't have to look far to find a replacement for Art Mauceri, who resigned as football coach on Monday.
Eddie Moore, a member of the Hurricanes' staff since 1981, accepted the position Thursday morning.
"We're very fond of Eddie and know he'll do a great job," athletic director Cindy Boulware said. "He was our No. 1 choice, and we're really happy he said yes."
After graduating from Orlando Edgewater High School, Moore played defensive tackle for the Florida Gators from 1970-73. He had coaching stints at Newberry, Williston and Union County before taking the head job at Bronson between 1977-80.
The Hurricanes finished 6-4 last season. Many of their starting linemen have been lost to graduation, but numerous skill position players, including quarterback Vince Brown and running back Chris Batie, are set to return. And according to Mauceri, who said Tuesday he hoped GHS would hire from within, interest in the program is at a recent high, as more than 120 kids expressed interest in playing in the spring.
"(Hurricanes') football is heading in the right direction," Mauceri said. "The future looks really bright."
