Two New SSHS Coaches Hired
At the Monday night meeting, the Sulphur Springs school board accepted the resignations of two Wildcats football assistant coaches. The Sulphur Springs ISD trustees also approved two new coaches, as Athletic Director Greg Owens is shuffling his coaching staff.
Wildcats Football Assistant Coach and Assistant Softball Coach Chris Valdovinos is leaving to become the Defensive Coordinator at Mexia for former Wildcat player, coach and coordinator Triston Abron, now the Black Cats Head Coach in Mexia.
Coach Owens said he has promoted Jason Meskimen from freshman football team coach to varsity assistant to replace Valdovinos. Coach Owens also promoted freshman football coach Kevin Hatcher to varsity football assistant to place Warren.
The board Monday approved the hiring of Kendall Mathis to replace Meskimen as a freshman football coach and Ira Franklin to replace Hatcher as a freshman football coach. Mathis is also a World Geography teacher and Franklin is a PE teacher.
