ABILENE, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) – Aaron Roan has been named the new head football coach and athletic coordinator of Cooper High School, succeeding Todd Moebes, who has resigned his position for personal reasons.
Under Moebes, the Cougars posted a 54-35 record over seven seasons, making the playoffs each of those seven years. Moebes led the Cougars to an outright district title in 2014, and a co-district title in 2016. He was the first Cooper head coach to make playoffs every year of his tenure there.
Roan has served as Cougars’ defensive coordinator for the past seven years and has been an assistant coach on the Cooper staff since 2006. Moebes coached at Cooper for 11 years, including the last seven as head football coach and athletic coordinator.
“We are fortunate to have a person of the caliber of Aaron Roan here to step in and lead CHS athletics,” said Phil Blue, Abilene ISD’s Executive Director of Athletics. “Aaron is very familiar with all aspects of the football program and will do a tremendous job of continuing the strong tradition of excellence in Cougar Nation.”
Roan, a 2004 graduate of McMurry University, has 14 years of coaching experience, including stops in Springtown and Stamford prior to joining the Cooper staff. He and his wife, Keathley, have two children, Hayes, 5, and Collins, 2.
