The Top 5 Houston HSFB job openings and who they need

Aldine Davis job is open. Falcons ready to give fans some playoff wins. By Bradley Collier

Culture, culture, culture.

High school football coaches carry the torch for a school.

Hire the right one and your school can be a beacon of light for the community. The wrong one can make for long fall seasons, and well… unenthusiastic pep rallies.

Jobs are beginning to open in Greater Houston and here is what those respective schools are in need of.



No. 1 Hightower Hurricanes

Probably the best job currently open in Houston. Only drawback is that FBISD has so many schools, which stretches the resources. The Hurricanes have a winning tradition and athletes. Just look at their Wall of Fame, pretty impressive. Padriac McGinnis was 38-27 in six seasons. Previous coaches were Cy Ranch’s Gene Johnson and Klein’s Shane Hallmark. They are in a tough district, but that could get them postseason-ready. Another program that just needs a blue print – a serious scheme on and off the field. Organization and a SERIOUS offseason. Lots of kids in track, which is okay, but teaching a new scheme is paramount. Offense has to catch up quicker than defense.


No. 2 Aldine Davis Falcons

I like this program. James Showers is out at Davis after opening the school and going 26-27 in five years along with four playoff appearances. Davis has players and a big enrollment. This is a quick fix with the right coach. It’s about a PROGRAM -- tying weight room to offseason conditioning to discipline and accountability. This is a good job. Needs an assistant with a PLAN from a power program that has won BIG. Kids believe in winners.


No. 3 La Porte Bulldogs

Jeff LaReau’s group went 2-8 last season but had a great 14-year run, going 103-61. There has been upgraded facilities, but the district is somewhat landlocked. The district has broken up the position. There will be a head coach and an AD, so that presents a hurdle sometimes. Not super growth like in the suburbs. Hardworking kids who are tough. They will go the extra mile for their leader. Another place that is somewhat behind the times as it relates to Social Media, marketing and promotion of their players. It’s a new era in high school football and the Bulldogs must get up to speed. Quick fix and they are back in the area discussion.


No. 4 Alvin Yellow Jackets

Buddy Hardin is out after going 0-10 on the season. The Yellowjackets are in Alvin ISD, which is home to super programs Manvel and Shadow Creek. Honestly, Alvin needs a volume of players. Young, enthusiastic assistant coach with a spread offense is a good fit. Needs a huge face-lift and something to cheer about. New logo, new marketing, something. New look.


No. 5 Yates Lions

Michael Watkins was put on leave in October and will not be returning. The Lions went 0-10 last year. Proud program that needs someone to rejuvenate the Lions’ Den from the ground floor. The enrollment is not really growing, so they are going to have to work with what they have. It’s a project, but there is so much history, pride and community to build on. Former players, alumni and swag needs to be welcomed back. Only way is up right now. Needs a young assistant builder from inside the HISD.


Other jobs currently opened...

Brazoswood Bucs

Dean DeAtley spent 18 seasons at the Wood. Went 1-9 this season. Hmmm, tough call here. Bucs could be a Friendswood or Barbers Hill with some work. Good kids who have been roughed up of late on the field. Their enrollment numbers hurt in Class 6A.


Brazosport Exporters

Mike Ferrell was relieved of his duties in late October for personal reasons. He was 3-4 on the season.
