DeSoto High School Head Football Coach Michael Robinson will now solely serve as an Assistant Athletic Director for DeSoto High School Eagles Athletics. In this role, Robinson’s duties will assume a focus of sports marketing and promotions, giving highlight to the accomplishments of DeSoto ISD student-athletes and serving as a point of contact and resource for college recruitment.

In discussing the transition, Robinson said, “I am proud of the work that I have accomplished in my role as head football coach here at DeSoto High School. The opportunity to return to and serve the community in which I live was nothing short of an honor. I am enthusiastic about having the opportunity to further positively impact the district’s athletics programs through my new assignment and am encouraged by the potential and possibility that exists in this program, school and community.”

DeSoto ISD will form separate committees comprised of students, parents, community members and coaches from a range of participation levels to develop a profile for a new football coach. The district plans to identify an interim head coach in the near future that will guide the program through Spring activities until a permanent head coach is appointed.
