After the Sulphur Springs School Board approved all the coaches he had recommended, Wildcats Athletic Director Greg Owens provided more information on the new hires Monday afternoon (June 25).

The Wildcats new football Defensive Coordinator is Alex Guerra. Coach Owens said he has known Coach Guerra for a long time. He said Coach Guerra comes to the Wildcats from Nevada Community, where he was Defensive Coordinator and Inside Linebacker Coach. Coach Guerra has also coached at Royse City, Pittsburg, LaVilla, San Antonio Memorial and Rockwall. Coach Guerra replaces Triston Abron who resigned to become Head Coach at Paul Pewitt.

The new Lady Cats Basketball Coach is Brittney Tisdale. She comes to Sulphur Springs from Mildred. Coach Owens said Coach Tisdale got rave reviews there. She has also coached at Paris and Cooper. Coach Tisdale is the daughter of Billy Mack Steed, the current boys coach at Paris. Coach Tisdale replaces Coach Jeff Chapman, who left for another coaching opportunity.

Coach Owens hired Alexi Upton as the new Wildcats Head Soccer Coach. Coach Upton played at Mesquite Poteet for former Wildcat Colby Peak. He has also been a student assistant at Texas State and most recently coached in Baytown. Coach Upton replaces Wildcats Soccer Coach Nicky Wiggins, whose resignation was accepted by the school board earlier this month.

Javier Aguayo has been hired as the Wildcats Assistant Soccer Coach. Aguayo is a first year coach from Como. He will also teach Spanish. Coach Aguayo replaces former Wildcat Fernando Arellano who resigned.

Brandon DeLorge has also been hired as a Wildcat Assistant Basketball Coach. Coach DeLorge was a head coach at Bland and also coached at North Forney, Forney and Irving. Coach DeLorge replaces Cameron Warren, who will become a Wildcat baseball assistant.

Coach Jason Meskimen is moving from baseball assistant to track.
