Kilgore Rangers hire new coach

Kilgore Announces New Head Coach Gooden

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - Kilgore’s football program promoted assistant coach Willie Gooden who began his ties with Kilgore back in 2001 when he was a walk on player.

He nearly didn’t become a member of the team. But his rise is hard not to notice, as he got what he called his dream job.

“It’s big for me, and that’s why this job was so important for me to get. Cause I didn’t want, you know anyone that would have came in this position I would still consider this home,” said Gooden.
