ARDMORE, Okla. -- Former Ada Cougars coach Larry McBroom is the new head coach of the Ardmore Tigers. McBroom was hired in a special school board meeting on Thursday afternoon.
McBroom has an outstanding resume which includes seven state championships in Ada. Since leaving Ada, McBroom has coached at Mt. Pleasant, Texas, and R.L. Turner in Carrollton. With the rich tradition the McBroom family has at Ada, it may be difficult for some to imagine him coaching at Ada's biggest rival high school.
Larry, his brother Gary, and father Craig McBroom have a long coaching legacy in Ada. The family has been in charge of Ada football for 43 of the last 49 years. McBroom won 199 games in two separate stints with the Cougars from 1980 to '95 and 2000 to 2003.
