Kradman has been recommended for the job; the District 207 Board will take action on his appointment at a March 3 meeting.

Most recently, Kradman has served as the head coach at Miami Beach (Fla.) High School. Over the last two years, he had a 14-7 record and directed his teams to the first back-to-back 7-plus win seasons in program history.

Kradman has also coached at the high school level closer to the area, with time served on the staffs at both Oak Park-River Forest and Proviso West in addition to south Florida's Dr. Krop High School.

At the collegiate level, Kradman has had time at Florida Atlantic, Wisconsin and Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

"Jason rose to the top of an excellent pool of candidates and became the unanimous choice of the Search Committee," Maine West athletic director Jarett Kirshner said in a statement released by District 207. "During three separate visits to campus, Jason was able to communicate a plan and vision for future success that was exciting to the Committee. We look forward to welcoming Jason and his family to Maine West."

If approved by the Board, Kradman would replace Chris Hare, who resigned after last season after amassing a record of 8-46 over six years. The Warriors last appeared in the IHSA postseason in the 2002-03 school year under coach Ray Pettenuzzo.
