Kilgore Independent School District is excited to announce that long-time Head Football Coach/Athletic Director Mike Wood will soon transition into the full-time position of KISD Director of Athletics and Athletic Facilities.
“Coach Wood has been an integral part of our Bulldog Football program’s traditions and high levels of excellence for over 25 years. As our Head Football Coach/AD for the last 11 seasons, he has successfully continued our programs’ rich traditions. He has also helped create an environment grounded in integrity, character, and high expectations. His leadership is both proven and appreciated, and I am excited about the many attributes Coach Wood will bring to this new Director of Athletics position," said Dr. Andy Baker, Kilgore ISD Superintendent.
One of the first responsibilities Coach Wood will have as the new KISD Director of Athletics will be to coordinate the search for Kilgore High School’s new Head Football Coach. The position will soon be posted to the District’s website and to several Texas High School Coaching webpages with hopes that the new Head Football Coach will be named by the end of this school year.
