Makes me wonder who all else applied and was considered. Was this the best option of applicants?

At FW POLY and EASTERN HILLS if you win 4-6 games that is pretty impressive because they get stuck in bad districts and that is where to go if one wants to improve 5 year average salary. It would be over 70 stacks.

22-40. What makes the powers that be in Henderson think that the new guy is all of a sudden going to come in and win 11 games?

Desoto OC calling plays. Won state that year. Had talent. FWISD is a coaches graveyard and very little in the way of talent. Good talent leaves and goes elsewhere if they can afford it.

Any word on the other Head coaching openings. Boys and Girls basketball and volleyball?

Was wondering the same. A complete overall should be the correct way. Basketball has unfortunately been a afterthought. Soccer and softball ball usually has been decent to good. Baseball has is a sport Henderson has no business not being competitive. Not sure about volleyball but I assume they were progressing.

Exactly I don’t really give past teams as a measuring stick.

Didn't call the plays there.  Peterman called it that year.

Incorrect. But if you are not a fan of the recent moves I'm sure that is what you are trying to sell.

Official title in 2016 - Passing game coordinator.  Helped with game plan and ideas, but final call was Peterman.  Go watch any archived news report from 2015 or 2016 about that Desoto team, pull up any archived story from Dallas Morning news by Matt Wixon.  Geez dude, not unhappy about the hire, I could care any way, but to make it seem like this guy is the second coming to save Henderson football, a little short sighted just because he called plays with a team that had 11 D1 recruits on the field.

Henderson will be fine this year and next year, we just have to see thru the next following years.

Mathis 2.0 hire, he might be there 2 years and wife will stay in Desoto and he’ll go back.

The wife is in Henderson and they are looking at buying a house from my understanding. Who would anyone "buy" a house when your only going to be somewhere for a couple of years and your wife is still at Desoto?

I have no dog in this fight but sounds like a lot of people are not happy with this hire. Will the superintendent be held accountable if it doesn't workout. And in all fairness lots of people fail when they don't have the athletes like they did Desoto or Denton Ryan. Time will tell I'm hoping Henderson gets back on track and this isn't a Mathis move for a year or two. Football is always better when the traditional powers of East Texas are playing great football and going to war with each other.

It's a half of Henderson are happy and another half isn't, but I say in my opinion is that if you look back in Hendersons past games when they have had a good QB or a D1 QB tends to motivate a team and with a good coach behind it, you never know till game day, there's athletes this year and next year, I don't know after that but Henderson will be okay these two years.

Gotta give him a chance . Henderson always competitive for the most part. I say give him a chance and he probably does wonders. I am not screaming state but playing in December isn’t stretching it.

Check back in two years and we’ll see. Maybe show them the houses Nick Saban and Tom Herrmann looked at before they turned the job down.

We really don't know till season starts but heres what I'm going say, this the truth think in past when Henderson has had a good QB has Henderson look and even made a run deep in  the playoffs besides faceing Carthage just think if didn't  face Carthage in those times, Henderson maybe had a chance to win State, last year's wasn't Henderson time maybe this year and other year maybe the time.

How in the world does this record get the Hendo head job.   Wow

Good luck!

It's the best Hendo could expect to get with the current situation. For those anti-Castles folks...step back, take a breath and really assess the situation.

You have just fired and treated like garbage the most successful coach in the history of your school because  you have a supe and his bud with egos bigger than Texas running everything. The best bud is running the athletic department, making hires before the FB coach even arrived so ANY successful head coach wouldn't think of subjecting himself and his family to this type of arrangement. The best that Hendo could have gotten was a young co-ordinator that will put up with being told what to do and how to run his program for a year or two and then head to greener pastures. Henderson and its athletes deserve better than that and a lot of people realize it. It has the potential of turning into a huge dumpster fire...in fact all the ingredients are there and already smoldering.

The poor new guy has several tough situations to remedy quickly...like how in the world do you get qualified assistants to come from the DFW area, or much of any other area, and take a large pay cut? The answer is...you can't...he will get what he can get which will make his job that much tougher...but hey, he can always just ask the AD what to do since he is the one in charge...right?

You said his wife would stay in Desoto. Why are you talking about something you evidently know nothing about? Why would you and some others make false claims about people? She is in Henderson to coach and they are looking for a house but the buyers market is not good right now. But they will find one soon enough because most of Henderson are helping them look. I don't live there anymore but I did get the chance of meeting them and they are impressive people. I for one are helping them.

Let's just see if Hendo new coach can turn things around,give him a chance.

How did he get treated like garbage? He's been knowing he was gone since football season. The admin gave him WAY too much time to find a job ( by the way with no success ) before they were forced to make a move.

Remember guys, he was getting paid as an AD FIRST and a HFC second! He wasn't doing his job as AD and numerous players had moved away from the football program. 

Why is this so hard to understand? This outside looking in is what you call garbage and second/third hand information.

A lot of you must have been friends of Castles or something.

I’ve never seen so many people upset about a guy being let go who didn’t actually win anything. And if 3rd and 4th round exits is good enough for you, then that’s part of the culture problem. Expectations should be high as can be. What’s the point if you aren’t trying to win state in a place that has won it before and has talent that is capable in many years.

Thanks! Can anyone tell me when an ISD was paying someone for being a "good man" or a "christian?" 

 I honestly think i'm both but lord have mercy my job doesn't pay me for neither. #performance

3. Expectations should be high as can be. What’s the point if you aren’t trying to win state in a place that has won it before and   4.  has talent that is capable in many years. 

1. No, not a close friend. I have just seen the impact he has made on many young men's lives, including my son.

2. Never won anything? Really? Pretty ridiculous comment. If you mean never winning a state championship like 99% of the coaches in Texas High School football...no, he hasn't.  His won/loss record at Henderson stands for itself and will be a record that will not be broken at Henderson for a long time.

3. Yet another ridiculous comment. If you knew him and his expectations for his staff and players every year you would know that he expected to win state every year...if you are a successful coach you always expect that.

4. Talent to win state many years? Hardly. Especially in the classification they are in...and we will see just how much the coaching aspect means in the next several years. Some of the Hendo folks assessment of their football and baseball talent is so ridiculous and  so over rated it is truly laughable.

It’s hilarious and absurd to me that y’all are acting like this guy was the GOAT. 
 

If you expect to win it every year, you better deliver on it at least once. Especially if you are open about that and making it known to people that may have a say in your employment. 
 

Let me ask you this, since you don’t think the Hendo talent is there... you said Castles expected to win it every year. So I guess you are saying he was wrong and shouldn’t have? He overestimated his talent?

Yeah, she was leaving Desoto 3 years ago too. She signed a contract at Ft. Worth Brewer to work with Peterman BUT never resigned at Desoto. She stayed. What job has she taken in Henderson? I’ll hang up and listen....
