"I started off as s junior high coach in Marshall, Texas and wound up being athletic director at Tyler," said Long.  " It's just a great place, I leave here with fond memories in my heart and it's and it's just been an honor to serve."

Long says the move to Conroe came "completely unexpected."  He says it will be a transition for him over the next month.  Long says he'll likely be going back and forth between the two school districts until his replacement in Tyler is found.
