"When Greg came in, everyone was impressed, and blown away," Board representative Wade Washmon said. "The cream rose to the top."After spending more than a decade at Baylor as the head golf coach, Greg Priest made a difficult decision to pursue another career opportunity. "It was tough, I really enjoyed my time in college athletics, but the main thing it came down to was family," Priest said.
Juggling a 6A school in Tyler Lee and a 5A program in John Tyler makes this challenging. But the East Texas native is already working on filling needs at both schools. "You've got to get them what they need to be successful and if you don't then you are fighting up-hill battles," Priest said.
Priest continued to say, "I've got to make decisions on what I feel like I can take to the board and to the superintendent. We then put a game plan together and see how we can raise the bar at everything we are doing."
