Coppell Finally Finds Their Head Coach

Frisco Liberty's Head Coach Joe McBride has accepted the position as the Head Coach of the Coppell Cowboys. McBride led Liberty to a 5-5 record in Class 4A last season in its first varsity season.

McBride coached for 8 years as an assistant at Lewisville Hebron. He was the defensive coordinator when Hebron won the Class 2005 Division II state championship.

Coach McBride will replace the very successful Bob Shipley, who left for 3A Brownwood after 2 seasons. McBride was not the first choice for the job. Coppell first offered the job two weeks ago to Conroe Caney Creek Head Coach Glenn Hill. Hill decided Coppell wasn't a good fit. The job was then offered to Navasota Head Coach Lee Fedora but Fedora declined the offer. Spring Westfield Head Coach Corby Meekins visited Coppell Last week and also opted not to take the position.
