Evidently, rumors of Randy Allen’s retirement were greatly exaggerated. Tuesday morning, Highland Park announced that three weeks after announcing his retirement, the legendary Texas high school football coach is returning for his 20th season on the sidelines for the Scots.

Allen, the fourth all-time winningest coach in Texas high school football history, has 376 lifetime coaching victories and led Highland Park to back-to-back Class 5A Division I titles in 2016 and 2017. Last year, Highland Park finished No. 51 in the High School Football America Top 100.
