Taylor named new AD for Colmesneil
By Mollie LaSalle
COLMESNEIL – The Colmesneil ISD board of Trustees met Monday evening at a special called meeting for the purpose of naming the district’s new athletic director/head football coach.
The meeting was called to order, and Superintendent Dr. Scott Davis immediately called the board into a short meeting in closed session. After 12 minutes, the board returned to open session.
Davis wasted no time in recommending the hiring of George Taylor to replace Cody Day, who accepted a position at Carlisle ISD to be their new Athletic Director.
Taylor comes to Colmesneil from West Hardin, where he was the AD for a year and a half, and the head football coach for the last four years Taylor and his wife Michelle have four children, two sons and two daughters. The Taylors are an all-in family when it comes to school and sports. Coach Taylor has spent the past 18 years in public education and has an administrative graduate degree and certification.
Davis said “he will fulfill the role of athletic director and be a vital member of our staff. He has a well-written and organized transition plan for CISD;
that level of forethought earned my respect.”
Taylor is committed to all levels of the athletic program, girls and boys, at every student level. He is also committed to naming a girls’ coordinator for the improvement of their programs.
Taylor highlighted the community feel and support he has witnessed when West Hardin would play Colmesneil in football. He referenced the work ethic he noticed every time his kids came to town, and that was a major draw for him. Having grown up in Anahuac, Taylor is a small- town guy, and Colmesneil was very attractive as a place to live, work, raise a family and grow student athletes.
Davis added, “ I had an overwhelmingly positive conversation with his previous boss, and his connections with current coaching staff and other quality teachers and coaches in the entire southeast Texas are is important to us as we no doubt will have possible openings coming and will want to fill them with professionals who will add value to our mission at the team spirit in Colmesneil, Texas. I recommend that we extend a contract to Coach Taylor as our new Athletic Director/Head Football Coach.”
The board voted unanimously to extend a contract and hire Taylor as Colmesneil’s new Athletic Director and head Football Coach.
