The Coolidge Yellowjackets welcome Wayne Ware as their new football coach this season, after confirmation was made earlier this week by Coolidge ISD superintendent, Dr. Robert Lowry, Ed.D.
Ware will wear a total of four hats this next school year, not only serving as the new coach on the gridiron, but also the school’s athletic director, head basketball coach and in the classroom teaching.
He spent last season as the head football coach at Calvert, leading the team to an 11-1 record and two rounds deep in the playoffs.
On the basketball court, he guided the Trojans (25-4) to the Class 1A Region IV finals, playing against Coolidge.
After graduating from Snyder high school, Ware went on to play basketball at Western Texas College and later transferred to McNease State University, but football has always been his passion so he decided to get into coaching.
