Head Football Coach Search

DeSoto ISD Begins the Search for the Next Head Football Coach

As DeSoto ISD begins the search for the next Head Football Coach, we want to ensure that we clearly communicate the process.

Selecting the right leader is critical to the success of any program whether considering an academic or athletic appointment. We understand that the decision we make now will have a lasting effect for years to come. Therefore, this is not a decision that DeSoto ISD will make in isolation.

Our community wants a strong leader with the ability to restore the program to a powerhouse caliber resulting in our student-athletes being highly recruited for colleges and universities. We seek someone who cares about our students and will engage with them, their parents and other vital members of our community. And, we need someone who will build and manage the program in alignment with our district goals and expectations. 

To ensure an inclusive, objective process, we will seek input from various groups inclusive of students, staff, parents, community members, alumni, and collegiate coaches. Some of these efforts have already taken place and will continue as we seek to develop a more comprehensive profile for the ideal candidate.
