WHS football coach to step down effective Dec. 21

WEATHERFORD — From a WISD press release issued this afternoon:

Weatherford High School Head Football Coach Reid Waller has informed WISD that he will be stepping down from his position effective Dec. 21 in order to pursue other options.

Waller, who currently has 29 years of coaching experience, was the head football coach for the Roos for the past three seasons.

“On behalf of Weatherford ISD, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Coach Waller for his leadership, commitment and dedication to both our students and our school system,” Weatherford ISD Superintendent Jeffrey Hanks said. “He is a people person – and he was a great match for our athletes and our other coaches.”

Waller was hired as head coach for the Roos in June 2010 after former Head Coach Kenny Wheaton announced he was moving to Oklahoma. Wheaton was responsible for bringing Waller to Weatherford and appointed him as the team’s defensive coordinator in 2007.

During his tenure with the Roos, Waller compiled an overall record of 7-23 (including a district mark of 5-16).

“We anticipate having a significant number of qualified applicants for this position,” Hanks added, “and we hope to have this vacancy filled by March 1, 2013.”
