Ardmore To Name Head Football Coach/Athletic Director on Tuesday

Posted:
 ARDMORE, OK --- The Ardmore Tigers have been without a head football coach since Doug Wendel left for Midlothian High School on March 6, 2015.

On Friday Ardmore Superintendent Sonny Bates confirmed with KTEN that Ardmore's new head football coach and athletic director will be named this week.

Bates says that he will present a name to the school board at the school board meeting on Tuesday at 5:30. The meeting will be held in the Ardmore High School cafeteria and it is open to the public.

Bates says they had 16 qualified candidates and have now narrowed it down to the one who they want to lead the Tiger program.

Bates said that they had internal candidates as well as some candidates from outside of the program. He would not confirm whether or not the new head coach is already on staff but he says that he is a good fit and everyone will be excited to see who it is.
