After 19 years as head coach, 22 years at Arp ISD, athletics director Dale Irwin has announced that he will retire effective June 30, 2022.

The 53-year old Irwin is making this decision at this time in order to spend more time with his family.

In the 90 year history of Arp High School Tiger football, Irwin is its winningest coach and the longest tenured.

This article https://www.arpisd.org/article/708732 has all the information you will need along with a quote, pictures and video that already have the appropriate courtesy burned in.

Irwin will continue to lead our student-athletes, and to oversee the transition to a new A.D. until his last day of work.  He fully expects Arp Tiger athletics to continue to be strong going forward.

The process of finding Irwin's replacement is ongoing.

I wonder if Kyle Copeland the oc for Legacy would apply for this job. He was the star qb for Arp when they were having some good runs in football.

If he's cut out of the same cloth as his father, this would be a great hire.

Good luck to Arp with the search for a new hire.  Not easy replacing a long tenured coach.

Long tenured coach, history kinda tells us that it is hard to hit the nail on the head with the first coach hired after a long tenured coach leaves, unless a long tenured assistant is promoted.  Maynot be always right —— but sounds good doesn’t it😁

You would think since it is so late in the year they probably know who the replacement is already. That would be my guess. 

Arp ISD promotes Wes Schminkey to head football coach & A.D.
