MWISD Athletic Director Chuck Lawrence reassigned

Mineral Wells Index

— Mineral Wells ISD superintendent Gail Haterius told the Index this morning that Mineral Wells ISD athletic director/head football coach Chuck Lawrence will be reassigned and will no longer hold the post he has held for the past five years.

Lawrence, who graduated from MWHS, posted a 20-32 record overall which included a district championship in 2010 - the first at the school in football since 1985 - and took the Rams to back-to-back playoff appearances in 2010 and 2011, the first time that has happened since the 1994 and 1995 seasons.

Haterius has named longtime MWHS track/cross country coach jackie Harvey as the interim AD.

"We appreciate what Chuck has done for our program, but we are going in another direction," Haterius said.

Contacted by the Index, Lawrence said he is "in the process of looking" for another job. He also said he is not sure of the status of his staff, the sixth winningest staff in MWHS history.

"That has yet to be determined," he said.
