DENTON, Texas (AP) - The holder of the Texas record for most
career wins by a high school football coach has agreed to emerge
from retirement to coach at Aubrey High School in North Texas.
The Aubrey school board voted unanimously to approve a two-year,
$100,000 contract with 70-year-old G.A. Moore to coach the Class 2A
Chaparrals and serve as the school's boys' sports coordinator.
He succeeds Daryl Hellman, who coached the Chaparrals for eight
seasons before stepping down to concentrate on his work as the
Aubrey school district's athletic director. Hellman said that new
focus is needed because he expects Aubrey will rise to Class 3A
Moore had coached 39 of his 42 seasons at high schools in nearby
Celina and Pilot Point. His Celina teams won four consecutive state
titles in 1998-2001 after winning championships in 1974 and 1995.
His teams at Pilot Point won state titles in 1980 and '81.
In all, he had 404 career victories and eight state titles
before he retired as Pilot Point football coach at the end of the
2004-05 school year.
Aubrey is 11 miles northeast of Denton and 37 miles northwest of
