I'm in education too... in a state that is "right to work", no union to speak of. Sounds like you are too ;-)
I would still keep looking if I were you, especially in Feb/April of 2013. You can always say "no". Otherwise, work on a Math or Science cert. that would certainly trump any coaching experience in another interview "tie".
Just wondering though... you're a special ed teacher and you call yourself "The Bad Guy" that's creepy, dude.
