By  | 

BRENHAM, Texas (KBTX) -- Brenham ISD has opened the position of Athletic Director and Head Football Coach, and will begin the search for an exemplary leader with a proven set of skills to lead the BISD Athletic Department to new heights and greatness.

Brenham ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Walter Jackson said, “We congratulate and publicly thank Coach Glen West and his wife Julie for 20 wonderful years of selfless service to the Brenham Independent School District. Coach West has led this district with an almost mythological distinction. He has served with a level of integrity that is unparalleled. He is strong man of faith and a trailblazer. Coach West is one of the last greats from a generation of coaches who define the golden-age of high school football. There will never be another Coach Glen West in Texas high school football. We wish Coach West, his wife Julie, and his daughters all the best in the future, and we are proud of the work that he has done here. This West family has made a significant and lasting contribution to the Brenham community.

It is now time to start a new chapter in Cub & Cubette nation athletics. We are tasked with the privilege and burden of finding the right leader and coach for this tremendous job. Brenham athletics is known throughout the state for its premier academic and athletic programs. My responsibility to our district is to protect the legacy that has been built by Coach West and his staff over the years. As superintendent, I must ensure that all of our sports programs thrive and prepare our students to be productive student-athletes and formidable competitors on the field.”

While Brenham ISD works to hire a new Athletic Director and Head Coach to lead our district, Coach Mike Adams, and Coach Brett Mouser have been named to serve as the Co-interim Athletic Directors. Coach Adams and Coach Mouser will report directly to Superintendent Dr. Walter Jackson and Brenham High School Principal Joe Chandler during the transition.

Brenham ISD will hold a community forum on Wednesday, March 7 in the BHS lecture rooms 111-113 at 6:00 p.m. to develop the profile of the next Brenham ISD Athletic Director. Your input matters to us, and we hope to see you at the meeting.
