In a special-called May 28 meeting, the Woodville ISD Board of Trustees met in executive session before publicly announcing their selection of Coach Mike Waldie as Boys' Athletic Coordinator and Head Football Coach, in which he will oversee all aspects of the football program for grades seven through 12.
Waldie earned his bachelor degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. His experience spans from assistant coach, recruiting coordinator and defensive coordinator for college programs in Kansas to athletic director for boys' and girls' programs, assistant head coach and defensive coordinator for school districts extending from northeast Texas' Mt. Pleasant to south Texas' Luling.
The Board also approved a motion authorizing Superintendent Glen Conner to negotiate salaries of incoming newly-hired District administrative employees until the Board adopts a new salary schedule.
