Northwest officials are planning to swiftly find the Texans’ next head football coach and athletic coordinator.
Northwest ISD Executive Athletic Director Susan Elza said via text Monday that she plans to “take a name to the board on April 14.”
She added that four candidates are interviewing for the job.
The new coach will replace Bill Patterson, who left Northwest last week to take the head coaching job at Sherman. Patterson spent five seasons on the Northwest sidelines posting a record of 23-30 and making three playoff appearances. The Texans went 8-3 in the past two seasons and fell in the bi-district round of the Class 5A playoffs.
Elza previously said the district wanted to get the new coach in place soon. The Texans are slated to start spring football practice April 22.
