Good!  Now maybe Guyer can get the monkey off their back. 😝

(Or have Prosper help us do it...)

Denton pride aside:

It's safe to go with the in-house hire at this point.  System is already in place.  Getting a coach at this point would make it harder on the kids then it already is.

OR...they could get the Lone Star coach who has found ways to lose to Ryan on a regular basis. 😁

Yeah there really is no excuse for Guyer this year to lose to Allen (play them in Denton this year) , morris or not

This was hinted at for weeks, but he was only signed on for a 1 year deal.  That’s crappy for the kids. 

After dealing with our own coaching departure I think its good for the kids in the long run. The timing sucks but of a coach isn't full into the job and doesn't want to really be here then the kids are better off without him.

Best thing for kids in the long run. He was running the program in the ground. He is a bad coach.

It's a bold statement when 11-3,  with losses to good teams making it to the state quarterfinals (three rounds further than the year before) is defined as running it into the ground.

Could have easily been 9-5 for the record.

Allen should never lose to Prosper......that said.

Allen had a couple good wins last year and had a couple bad losses.

I'm really not sure how you would rate their 2021 season.

 

 

 

Prosper's a town to watch out for.  Just another one of the new (more affluent) suburbs that are popping up all over the place in DFW and the ret of Texas.  They opened a new HS, Rock Hill recently.  

 

They beat Marcus and gave Guyer all they could handle.

With damn near 7000 kids 3rd round is terrible.

Prosper lost five games last year including giving up 60 points in a loss to 5-5 Little Elm. Guyer smashed Prosper in the regular season.

Allen should never lose to Prosper, pied.

It just does not look right. Allen bear Guyer and smashed the Trinity Trojan. Couldn't beat Prosper though.

OK, it was the fourth round, but better than the first round exit the yer before he took it over and ran it into the ground, right?

I don’t know about that, but his timing sucked.  3 HCs in 3 years is not good for continuity nor for winning.

Razorback fans going in on him online.

He maybe the worst SEC  coach of the last 50 years. Arkansas should be a 8 plus win team every year and win 10 or 11 every 7 or 8 years no reason for them not to be a top 25 team most years.

Chad Morris currently doesn't have any offers to coach in college football that I see.

My best guess is Morris lands with a FCS program in Texas with some type of assistant position. 

It's a little late to be looking for a new job.

BREAKING: Allen finds its next head coachBREAKING-NEWS-GFX-51313422-5235517.webp

Allen High School will hire Midlothian Heritage coach Lee Wiginton as its new head coach. He will replace Chad Morris who resigned his position in mid May.

Matt SteppMatt SteppMay 23 8:19 am

For the second straight year, Allen ISD wasted very little time in their search for a head coach. On Monday, the district announced Midlothian Heritage's Lee Wiginton as the next head football coach for the Eagles.  

Wiginton, a native of Lampasas and the son of a coach, is well-respected around the state, as evidenced by his election as president of the Texas High School Coaches Association in July. He will serve as the organization’s president in the 2022-2023 school year. In 2020, he was named the THSCA's Grant Teaff Beyond the Game Award winner. 

A 21-year head coaching veteran, Wiginton's career featured stops at Bosqueville, Comfort and Mexia before arriving in Midlothian ISD to take over at Midlothian High in 2010. After five seasons leading the Panthers, Wiginton made an unusual move in 2015, going across town to open up MISD’s second high school, Midothian Heritage, where he's had good success. In six seasons at the helm at Heritage, Wiginton has a record of 60-17, with a 4A Division I regional final appearance in 2019 and back-to-back regional semifinal appearances in 2017 and 2018, suffering hearbreakers to Kennedale and Carthage, respectively. Wiginton has a career record of 157-89.

Wiginton began his coaching career in 1993 as a junior high coach in San Angelo ISD. In his first season as a head coach at Bosqueville in 2000, he led the Bulldogs to their first ever 11-man playoff appearance.

Wiginton has ties to Allen ISD superintendent Robin Bullock — prior to coming to Allen in 2013, Bullock spent thirteen seasons in Midlothian ISD administration and was on staff in 2010 when MISD hired Wiginton away from Mexia.
