Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Former Pine Tree athletic director Tim Russell has confirmed that he will be joining Gilmer ISD as an assistant coach; working with the team's defense.

Russell submitted his resignation letter to Pine Tree ISD last week saying he was not forced to move. It was a personal decision.

Russell spent four years at Pine Tree as athletic director and football coach.

The move won't  be official until the Gilmer ISD school board approves his hire at their meeting later this month.
