Milgrom is the co-offensive coordinator at Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas, where he has coached for 13 years, and graduated from the school in 1993. He was also on the the Raiders' first state championship team in 1992 and played offensive guard.
He has some familiarity with the Hurricanes: Aquinas and Manatee met in the state semifinals in 2005, '06, '09, 2010 and '12.
Wallace has been the head coach at Bowling Green High in Kentucky since 1996 and has lead the team to three consecutive Class 5A state championships. The Purples haven't lost a game since 2010 and were state runners-up in 2005, '06 and '07. Wallace's record at Bowling Green is 190-35.
Wallace also served as the head coach at Warren East High in Bowling Green from 1984-93, and was the school's athletic director for three years, as well.
Manatee assistants Chris Conboy, Chad Choate, Jim Phelan and Chuck Sandberg are also being interviewed, and athletic director Jason Montgomery said there are eight other candidates he is reviewing.
Joe Kinnan, Manatee's head coach who won 290 games and five state titles in two stints (1981-2000, 2005-2013), announced last week he was taking a medical leave of absence for the 2014-15 school year.
It is unclear if he will return after this season.
