A week after indicating he had resigned as coach at Admiral Farragut to spend more time with his family, Chris Miller has been confirmed as one of 15 applicants for the job at Robinson.

Athletic director Marcia Monk released the list Wednesday morning upon a request from the Tampa Bay Times. Robinson offensive coordinator Rob Burns, offensive line coach Shawn Taylor and receivers coach Craig Everhart also are among the applicants. Burns and Taylor are Robinson alumni.

The school is seeking a replacement for Mike DePue, who retired at the end of the 2012 season as the program's winningest coach. Monk said the administration would like to hire a new coach in the next three weeks.

Miller compiled a 20-4 record the last two seasons at Farragut, leading the Blue Jackets to the Class 2A state title game two autumns ago. Upon resigning, he told the Times he was stepping down to devote more time to his wife and two boys, ages 4 and 10 months.
