Jay Brown Leaves Palestine Job After One Season
Palestine athletic director and head football coach Jay Brown resigned his position this week after one season at the helm, and now the Wildcats are looking for a replacement.
Brown turned in his resignation on Wednesday (Jan. 21), and declined to comment to the Palestine Herald-Press about why he left the job after just one year.
"Nothing I want to talk about," Brown told the Herald-Press. "It's time to move on in my life. I worked with great kids and moved them and the school in a positive direction. We didn't have the results like we wanted on the football field. I'm definitely grateful for the opportunity that Palestine gave me. I'm ready to continue my career in coaching."
Palestine went 1-9 in 2014, its only win coming against Brownsboro 41-21 in the final game of the season.
Brown was the defensive line coach at Denton Ryan before taking the Palestine job last June. Prior to that he was Henderson's defensive coordinator and also spent six seasons as the head coach at Texas College.
Palestine ISD Superintendent Jason Marshall told the Herald-Press he will be accepting applications for the position until Feb. 11.
