Cayuga AD/FB Coach Greg Jenkins headed to Tenaha as Athletic Administrator
Friday, 19th April 2013 - 7:57PM
After spending the last five years on the opposite sideline as one of Tenaha’s most intense rivals, Cayuga Athletic Director Head Football and Head Basketball coach Greg Jenkins has decided to join the maroon, white, and Tiger stripes. In last night’s regular April board meeting in the Tenaha ISD Tiger Den, Jenkins and his wife Carrie accepted positions within the TISD family. Jenkins will join the Tiger football staff which enters the spring and summer off-season period thought to be 2013’s pre-season number one ranked team in Class A Division II having 10 starters return on both sides of ball. It was the opportunity to have multiple chances at championship runs that appealed to Jenkins. When asked about the move from Wildcats to Tigers, Jenkins added “I have had a front row seat to see the Tenaha Tradition, and no one respects the way Tenaha kids play, the way they refuse to lose better than me. It was something that I thought I wanted to be a part of at this point in my career, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

Has Elysian Fields Re-opened Coaching Search?
Friday, 12th April 2013 - 3:48PM
*Updated, Thursday, April 11th*

I spoke with the remaining finalist, Jeff Rogers this morning, he still hasn't heard back from anyone at Elysian Fields.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are re-opening the search and/or if Rogers himself decides to withdraw his name from consideration.

My email to superintendent Maynard Chapman have not been returned.

And, Michael Garland, of our staff reported this just a few minutes ago.

Elysian Fields has re-opened the search, that's confirmed.

And, Blue Ridge assistant coach Jeff Rogers had not heard from anyone at Elysian Fields as of 11:30am today.
