Lindale, Texas (KLTV) - Athletic Director confirmed to KLTV that Scotty Nichols will become the new head baseball coach at Lindale High School.

Nichols will replace Kevin Simmons who stepped down at head coach, but will remain in the district.

"We are excited to have Kevin," said Meador, "We think that he can bring some big-time experience to us, and help us reach a point like he did in Brownwood."
