I remember telling you guys, during the season, and as of late... La Marque was extremely unhappy with thier new head coach. I believe a desire to see him go has resulted in his resignation, though he will say it's because his family wants to move to West Texas. He had applied for a West Texas job at Andrews, but did not get the job. He leaves La Marque without a HC job being lined up.
Having coached 1 year and not been successful (winning a state title), there are very few jobs on the 4A level that you'd be a fool to step away from, without having a better 4A or 5A position available... La Marque is one of them. He worked as an assistant for 14 years, then as a HC/AD for Refugio for 4 years.. now he has the coveted La Marue HC job... where winning/playing for state titles is the norm... and he quits because he wants to "move" west?? This was a force-out, plain and simple!
Now, unfortunately, La Marque ISD will be tagged a tough 1-n-done stop for many coaches who don't win district and advance, at least, 3 or 4 rounds into the playoffs!
