HISD Superintendent Dr. Steve Johnson and the Board of Trustees got together Thursday afternoon to announce their selection of a new Hornet football coach and boys’ athletic director.
Dr. Johnson reflected on the task that had been before them to choose a new coach . . . .
Coach Southern was happy to be selected for the position . . . .
Southern had a 37-37 record over 7 years at Belton and a 36-24 record after five seasons at Marshall. At Marshall, he took the Mavericks to back-to-back Class 4A Division 1 state championship games in 2004 and 05.
