With the spring season also come opening of coaching positions in many school districts—some due to contract negotiations (whether it be in the form of promotion or reassignment), others new positions available as enrollment growth continues.
In the area 1A schools, Cumby ISD is seeking candidates to fill two coaching positions. The first is a head coaching spot for volleyball, basketball, or softball to fill third girls’ position. The second is head boys basketball, head golf, assistant football or possible defensive coordinator for high school athletics. Applicants need to contact athletic director Ed Perez.
Yantis ISD recently filled the head girls’ basketball position that was formerly held by Jennifer Payne. Athletic director and head boys basketball coach Jack Bowles said that the school has received 48 applications to date.
Bowles said from that list Ricky Jacks, formerly from Athens, was hired.
For the area 2A Como-Pickton CISD, athletic director and head football coach Paul Tullis is also still deliberating over applications for the opening for a new offensive coordinator for the Eagle football team. Joey Sims has been named the new head boys’ basketball coach.
Emory Rains is seeking applicants to fill coaching positions. For the offensive line coaching position will include track as a second sport; applicants need to have certification in composite Social Studies, BCIS, or Industrial Arts. There are currently two positions that need filled at the junior high level. Coaches will be involved in football, basketball, and track and field. The teaching positions linked to these positions require applicants to be qualified to teach science, technology, or trade. Rains school is in the 3A classification. Applicants should refer correspondence to Brannon Kidd, athletic director at Emory Rains ISD.
In the 4A classification is Sulphur Springs ISD. Athletic director and head football coach Greg Owens is taking applications for a new head volleyball coach and a new head girls’ soccer coach. Both positions include open teaching fields.
The 2008 Lady Cat varsity volleyball team was coached by head coach Rachel Curtis. Curtis has given up the position to pursue her work as an independent P31 Fitness trainer. She will also be devoting her time to motherhood for the first time.
This past season the Lady Cats soccer team earned a bye in the first round of the playoffs, but was defeated by the Frisco Lady Raccoons in the next round. The team was coached by Joel Bailey and Carol Weaver.
