Fort Wayne (incnow.tv)- James Blackmon Sr. isn't commenting on whether he will be leaving Bishop Luers to take the head coaching job at Marion but we do the know the search appears to be wrapped up.

The IBCA website posts job openings on it's website so coaches can go on and see what opportunities are out there. As of today, the job opening at Marion is listed as closed.

Sources continue to maintain to 21Alive that Blackmon will be the one to fill that position and that it will likely be announced at Wednesday's school board meeting.

21Alive first reported the story on Friday that Blackmon was once again going to be returning to his alma mater and would be bringing his two sons with him, James Jr. an IU recruit, and Vijay who is being recruited by IU.

Blackmon left Luers in 2011 to take the Marion job only to have second thoughts and returned as the head of the Knights program a month later.
