Elysian Fields to recommend Scott Ford
Monday, 22nd April 2013 - 9:52AM
The Elysian Fields search committee will recommend Ford to Board meeting on Tuesday. Ford has been told it is a done deal.
"A week ago, I never would have dreamed I would be leaving Hidalgo," said Ford, "But the search committee at Elysian Fields
contacted me, and I had to jump at this chance to go back home."
Ford did make the playoffs in 2012 at Hidalgo, despite playing over half the District 32-5A season without injured freshman quarterback Shea
Patterson. Patterson verbally committed to play for the University of Arizona after season's end.
"I'm happy that I'm leaving this program in better shape than when I first arrived, and I'm glad to be leaving on good terms with Hidalgo
ISD, because they gave me a chance when I really needed one," Ford added.
Other than Hidalgo, Ford also had stints at Los Fresnos, Nacogdoches and Joshua.
He spent six years in the valley, 64-17 overall.
Overall coaching record of 72-39.
