Hal Wasson out at Southlake Carroll

Southlake Carroll is cutting ties with head football coach Hal Wasson, who has led the Dragons for 11 years.  The school district began taking applications Monday after posting the head coach opening on its website.

“Carroll ISD has reached a resolution with Head Football Coach Hal Wasson and accepted his resignation,” the district said in a statement. “Based on the February 13 motion, a Board vote is not required. The district will post the position for a new head coach Monday morning.”

The search for a new head coach comes after the district self-reported violations within the football program to the University Interscholastic League.

Wasson led the school to the Class 5A Division I championship in 2011.

Below you can listen to my interview with Wasson before the 2011 title game on the High School Football America Radio Show.
