Herrmann has been the Head Coach at Pflugerville since 1997 going 128-106 during that time. The 128 wins puts him in 324th place all-time for coaching wins.

Taylor comes over from Austin McCallum who just come off of their best season in school history going 14-1 and making it to the state semifinals. Coach Taylor went 35-13 during his 4 years with McCallum. This will be his 2nd Head Coaching position.

The Panthers will be looking for their first winning season since 2012. The new re-alignment brings them good news and bad. The good news is that they will be dropping down to Class 5A going to District 11-5A Division I. The bad news is that they will have Cedar Park, Georgetown, Hutto, Leander Rouse, Manor and Pflugerville Connally is their district. That will make that winning season and a trip to the playoffs a tough chore.
