R-F Head Football Coach Huey Chancellor Leaves Pirates for Edna

ROCKPORT - Rockport-Fulton is looking for a new head football coach. Huey Chancellor left the Pirates after three seasons as coach and athletic director. Chancellor will assume the same title at Edna High School.

Chancellor has been a head football coach for 22 seasons. Over the past three years, he led the Pirates to a 15-18 record, including a trip to the third round of the playoffs this past season.

Aransas Coutny ISD said the following in a press release:

Raymond "Huey" Chancellor is resigning from his position as Athletic Director/Head Football Coach for Aransas County ISD effective February 28, 2014. Chancellor has accepted the offer of the AD/Head Football Coach position with Edna ISD.

Chancellor has been the Athletic Director for Aransas County ISD and the Rockport-Fulton High School head football coach since February 2011.

Upon accepting Chancellor's resignation, ACISD Superintendent Joseph Patek stated, "We hate to see Coach Chancellor leave. He did a great job leading our athletic program and, as our head football coach, led the Pirates to the playoffs two of his three years here. We wish him well in his new job."

The district will begin the search for Chancellor's replacement immediately with the goal of having the new Athletic Director/Head Football Coach in place before the end of the school year.

Until the vacancy is filled, Chris Bentley, Girls Athletic Coordinator/Head Girls Basketball Coach, will serve as the Interim Athletic Director and Casey Stephenson, Rockport-Fulton High School Teacher/Coach, as the Interim Boys Athletics Coordinator.
