Cisco’s Brent West resigns as head football coach but remains on to lead the entire program as athletic director.
He said, “I’ve been thinking about this for a while, now. We have a lot of good coaches on staff, and it’s time for me to get out of the way and leave it for someone younger and smarter.”
Whoever replaces West is replacing a legend.
West leaves the program as the all-time leader in wins with 203. He led the Loboes to 13 district championships, five appearances in that state championship game, and a state championship in 2013.
West is looking forward to continuing to help the new coach as the athletic director.
West added, “I want to help, but I’m looking forward to a little less stress.”
The job is open internally for Cisco ISD employees. West says he’s hoping one of his assistants is going to step up to take his place.
