UPDATE: Conroe ISD names Dereck Rush new Oak Ridge head football coach

Conroe ISD has approved the hire of Dereck Rush as the new head coach at Oak Ridge High School.  The Board of Trustees made it official Monday night.

Rush has been John Tyler head football coach the last five seasons, posting a 42 and 23 record.  The Lions have been one of the states best programs the last three years winning 35 games.

Coach Rush will be reunited with former Tyler ISD athletic director Danny Long.  Long left Tyler last year to become Conroe ISD athletic director. 

Tyler ISD athletic director Rod Kaspar says that Rush will be back in Tyler Wednesday morning.  Kaspar plans on beginning the search for Rush's replacement immediately.
