After spending four years in Canton, Angel was officially hired as Palestine's new athletic director and head football coach on Thursday.   Angel is pumped to make the move, but will miss his players in Canton.

"It's really tough leaving the kids," said Angel.  "That's a great group of kids over there. They're going to have great success. That's why the decision for us, we took our time. Me and my wife really felt led to be here. We looked into Palestine quite a bit and it just seemed like the right fit and were excited and look forward to the opportunity and ready to get things going."

113 coaches applied for the job.  It's appealing position, because of the renovation to the football stadium.
