Booth just wrapped his fourth season at Valrico Bloomingdale, where his record is 12-28. But the Bulls were 6-4 last year and have improved each season after going 0-10 under Booth in 2009.
After leaving Manatee, Booth earned All-America honors playing quarterback at MidAmerica Nazarene, a NAIA school in Kansas, before signing as a free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs and switching to wide receiver.
Booth played in NFL Europe with the Amsterdam Admirals, helping the team win World Bowl XIII in 2005 with 103 receiving yards.
He also coached wide receivers for two years at Nazarene and played in the Arena Football League with the Kansas City Brigade.
Sessions made his mark as one of the top defensive coordinators in Alabama, helping Daphne win the Class 6A state title in 2010 and Pratville to state championships in 2008 and '09.
He has been the head coach at Alabama's McGill-Toolen since 2011. Sessions is 35-5 in three seasons with the Yellowjackets.
Manatee assistants Chad Choate, Chris Conboy, Jim Phelan and Chuck Sandberg were scheduled to be interviewed, along with Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas assistant Jason Milgrom and Bowling Green (Kentucky) head coach Kevin Wallace.
Joe Kinnan announced earlier this month he is taking a medical leave of absence from Manatee for the 2014-15 school year.
