    Seriously? Why post the ad if you already have a candidate? That's the only explanation when a job is filled in three days.

    One of my former shops. That is an extremely quick hire. It was only posted on NCPA last Friday. The incoming SE is going to have to deal with an 8 or 9 p.m. deadline starting next month, rendering this place a de facto nondaily for sports.

    Al Myatt is the hire. He has a ton of daily newspaper experience and knows the area well.

    Wow, that's a blast from the past. Didn't know he was still kicking around.

    Al has been around forever. This hire actually makes sense. Al is a Harnett County native, he's an older guy and won't be going anywhere. That will stop the turnover typical at a paper like that. My stint there lasted 16 months.

    I believe Al's predecessor got the open gig at the Salisbury Post, or so I was told.

    That is correct.
