Following the DeSoto Independent School District’s search for its new head girls basketball coach, the district is proud to announce Jeffery Chatman as the new leader of the nationally-ranked Lady Eagles basketball program. 

Chatman comes to the DeSoto ISD school community from his previous post as assistant athletics coordinator and girls head basketball coach at Byron P.Steele II High School in Cibolo, Texas, where he led the program to an overall 277-67 record in ten years. In 2022, Chatman became the all-time winningest coach at Steele.

Some of Chatman’s career accolades in that role include previous national rankings, multiple state quarters finals, multiple state appearances; national team ranking and various coaching honors including coach of the year honors.

Prior to his tenure at Cibolo Steele, Chatman led programs at Lubbock Estacado and Del Rio High School.

Congratulations and welcome to the Nest, Coach Chatman!
