Huey Chancellor Is Set To Take Over At Rockport-Fulton

2011 Coaching Change -- Rockport-Fulton Pirates

Old Head Coach: Guy Grover -- Resigned after leading the Pirates to a 19-22-0 record over 4 seasons. Grover has an overall record of 53-62-0. He was the Head Coach at 2A Skidmore-Tynan 1 year (2000) 6-5-0, 3A Aransas Pass 2 years (2001-2002) 13-9-0 and 3A Bandera 4 years (2003-2006) 15-26-0. He led Rockport-Fulton to the playoffs for the first time in 7 years in 2009 but fell to 5-5 in 2010 wiht a 2-3 district record despite dropping down to class 3A.

New Head Coach: Huey Chancellor -- Comes over from 4A Longview Pine Tree where he has led the Pirates to a disappointing 2-18-0 record over the last 2 seasons. Before going to Pine Tree he coached at Bellville where he spent 14 seasons going 115-49-0. Chancellor has an all-time record of 126-89-0.

Team News: Most wins in a season over the last 10 years has only been 7 wins (2002 & 2003). They have gone 27-44 over the last seven seasons. They are hoping a drop down to class 3A will help but they finished 5-5 with a 2-3 mark in district play last season.
