The Stephenville Independent School District's board of trustees didn't have to look far to find its new head football coach.

The board voted Friday to name Greg Winder, the Yellow Jacket offensive coordinator, to fill the position following the departure of former head coach Joseph Gillespie.

Gillespie left the position as head football coach and athletic director after seven seasons to accept a job coaching linebackers at the University of Tulsa.

Winder is expected to assume his new role at SHS following Spring Break.

The board also hired Alan Haire as the district's new athletic director.

The E-T will have more on this breaking story as more details develop.
