Plano West Wolves footballThe coaching carousel in the Dallas-Forth Worth area continues.

Monday, Plano West head coach Mike Hughes announced his retirement.  The Plano West football website notes that heading into 2014, Hughes had coached for 33 years, 31 of them in the Plano Independent School District. 

Hughes closes-out his career on a 9-3 record in 2014 that saw the Wolves advance to the second round of the Texas Class 6A-I playoffs.  Plano West was led by 5-star running back Soso Jamoba, who last week signed with UCLA.

Since the end of the 2014 season, DeSoto, Euless Trinity and Skyline — three teams in the final 2014 High School Football America Top 25 — have seen changes at the top of their programs.
