Rio Vista Hires Craig Carpenter

The Class 2A Rio Vista Eagles have hired Craig Carpenter as their new head coach and athletic director. Carpenter will take over the position left open when Robert Dagley retired in March.

This will be Carpenters first head coaching job. He started off as the defensive line coach for Pittsburg from 1998-1999. From 1999-2001, Carpenter was the defensive line coach at Alvarado High School. From 2001-2002, he was the defensive ends coach at Brewer High School and was the defensive coordinator at Glen Rose from 2002-2004. From 2004-2006, Carpenter was the assistant head football coach at Rockdale High School and was also the defensive and special teams coordinator. His most recent job was at Midlothian where he was the assistant head football coach, defensive coordinator and the offseason coordinator.

He will have his hands full. The Eagles are on a 5 year losing streak and have not won more than six games in 8 years. Last season they finished 4-6 for the third consecutive year.
