Graham High School Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Brad McCoy has announced he is resigning and going to work as a consultant for the Flippin Group.


Brad McCoy said, “It has been a wonderful 5 years in Graham for me and my family. I have such great respect and close relationships with my current coaching staff, my administration, and the kids in the program, that it makes it a very difficult decision. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of replacing me from within my staff.. Our program has come so far and is in position to continue that growth through the current leadership, and keeping this incredible group of men together! Thank you for your support and encouragement through the years. As much as I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life, I am also saddened by the thought of leaving. I have loved being at Graham High School and hope through my actions I am leaving it a better place.”

 Graham Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Beau Rees said Coach McCoy will be missed. “Brad has definitely made a positive impact on our athletic programs during his 5 year tenure in Graham ISD. We were in the process of extending his contract and increasing his salary in an attempt to keep him; however, God has opened a new door for him and he feels a calling to walk through it. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Administration, and the entire GISD Family, we wish Brad and Debra all the best and thank them for their tireless efforts on behalf of the student-athletes in Graham ISD.”


Dr. Rees indicated the District would first look inside of the system for a replacement. “We plan to interview internal candidates first before advertising the position,” Rees said. The District hopes to name a new coach by March 1st.



James McDaniel is retiring after 35 years of coaching at Quanah High School, the past 11 as head football coach. McDaniel guided the Indians to eight playoff appearnces and 79 wins. Quanah hopes to name a successor by March 8.
