Denison to name Rogers head coach

DENISON, TX - After more than 170 applicants and narrowing the field to three finalists last week, Denison will name Chad Rogers at 11 a.m. on Monday at the DISD Administration building to be its next head football coach and athletic director.

Rogers will join Denison from Snyder, where is the all-time winningest coach and is 96-40 in 11 seasons with nine playoff appearances. Snyder went 11-2 this past season, losing to Shallowater in the regional semifinal.

    He was at the booster club meeting Monday. I think this is a step in the right direction. Maybe the good old boys (cap on head feet in chair) will drop out of the booster club with the coaching change. First impression for me was good.

    Seems everyones got some advice.........I got some for the advice givers. Why don't you shut your pie hole long enough to see what the guy can do. If your such the expert, maybe you should have put your application in for the job. Good luck Coach - 98% of Denison is on board and the other 2% will hop on the band wagon when the Jackets are winning!

    Welcome aboard Coach Rogers. Some folks in Denison won't be happy unless they hired Criswell back.

    Team discipline, strong character, hard work is fantastic. How about kicking those that don't obey the rules OFF THE TEAM?!! Not a slap on the wrist and let them continue playing. Tired of watching kids who may have talent but no respect or work ethic get to play over kids who work hard and have good character. Eager to see what changes lay in store.

    Never opposed to a change! Just hope that they stay true to the coaches/families that have stuck out this change. They believe in the fine young athletes in this area and DESERVE THE OPPORTUNITY to show him what they have and can do!!

    "All time winningest coach"? In what? Where? I've never heard of him. I thought G.A. Moore was the all time winningest coach in Texas.
