What's Tampa Bay's best coaching job?



By now you’ve seen that Robert Weiner has left his job as Plant head coachto become an assistant at USF. I speculated about Weiner joining the Bulls (as head coach) here a few weeks ago. 

Weiner’s departure means the Panthers will need a new head coach. Obviously the opening will attract attention from all over Tampa Bay – and probably across the country. Plant is a desirable job.
But how desirable? Let’s discuss.
What are the top five coaching jobs in Tampa Bay?
Plant is No. 1 in my book, although I’ll listen to any of your arguments that Armwood is the top. I’m not sure Pasco is No. 3, but it’s up there. Lacoochee always seems to be loaded with talent, and the Pirates will benefit – as long as the district doesn’t open up Lacoochee High. A much tougher district schedule (likely foes include South Sumter, Hernando and Nature Coast) makes it less appealing than it was a month ago.
But what other schools belong in the top five? Largo? Hillsborough? Discuss.
