TRINITY — Assistant Principal Shaun Stout has assumed athletic director duties for Tiger sports.
Stout was in place as interim Nov. 7 after Patrick Goodman was reassigned Nov. 4. Goodman, who has a year left on his contract, is now head of the Disciplinary Alternative Education Placement Center.
Trinity ISD Superintendent Dr. John Kaufman said the administration feels a change was necessary to improve the overall performance of the sports program.
“I felt some areas were lacking in performance,” he said. “I appreciate the job that Coach Goodman has done, but at this time, a change needed to be made.”
The search for a new director began Nov. 8 and will close out Jan 6, 2023, Kaufman said., and then a selection committee of administrators, community members and parents will be appointed.
In a statement, Stout said it is an honor to be trusted with the duties to represent our great students.
“Our Trinity coaches, along with myself, are going to continue to work hard to help our students reach their full potential both academically and athletically,” he said. “We believe as a staff that all things are possible for our students here in Trinity.”
