St. Vincent Pallotti athletic director Steve Walker said in an e-mail to The Sun yesterday that he is accepting applications for the position of varsity football coach, a job that has been held for the past four seasons by Jack Mead.

Walker could not be reached for comment. Mead, reached last night on his cell phone at a practice for an all-star team he will coach Saturday, said he was unaware his job was up for grabs.

"I was told by [principal] Steve Edmonds that I should come and talk to him after the all-star game about what they're going to do, but I guess they've already made up their minds," said Mead, whose Panthers struggled through a 3-6 season. "I guess they're going to get rid of me."

In three previous seasons, Mead's Panthers went 5-5, 7-3 and 9-2, winning a share of the 2004 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's B Conference title.

Among Mead's graduates is two-time second-team All-Metro Tim Jennings, who plays for Army.
