In a closed session tonight, the TISD school board has come to a decision to offer Darrell Jordan from La Marque High School the Athletic Director and head football coach position at Terrell High School.
Superintendent Kelly Rodgers said that the board appreciated Jordan's credentials, his attitude and his emphasis on discipline within the program.
Jordan has spent the last three seasons at La Marque. Under his guidance, the Cougars finished the 2010 season with an 11-4 record and a berth into the Division II-4A state title game after a fourth-place finish in District 24-4A. Overall, Jordan went 18-14 in three seasons with the one playoff appearance.
Most recently, La Marque also found success on the basketball court, with a trip to the state finals where they lost to #1 ranked Dallas Kimball.
The Terrell ISD board will make the decision official during its March 21 board meeting.
