Lindale Coach Headed To Sulphur Springs

As it turns out Coach Owens is leaving for another school in East Texas after all. It's just not the Coach Owens we thought it was going to be. While Mike Owens decided to stay at Lee instead of move to Henderson, Lindale's Gregg Owens was named new head coach of Sulphur Springs late last night. After 14 seasons as either a head coach or assistant coach in Lindale, Owens is going home. He said today, his alma mater came calling shortly before Christmas. After a final interview at last nights school board meeting, he was offered the job. Owens was 55-36, taking the Eagles to the playoffs all eight years he was head coach, winning four district titles. He said telling those kids today he was leaving was the hardest part of the entire process.

"I'm going to miss them," Owens said. "I'm going to miss the people here. It's been a tremendous run. It's been the best 15 years of my life, and I owe this district a bunch, and this community a bunch for making me the person that I am today, and just helping me raise my kids in a great community."

Owens says he plans to meet the Sulphur Springs coaches and kids on Thursday, and hopes to begin full time there, by February 1. However, LISD Superintendent Jane Ann Morrison said today, she had yet to receive a resignation from Owens, and still considered him Lindale's head coach. She says it will be up to the school board at their January 30 meeting to decide Coach Owens immediate future, if indeed a resignation is submitted. Apparently, until then, no coaching search will take place.
