Riesel, TX –  Ronnie Wilson resigned as Reisel Athletic Director and Head Football Coach on Tuesday citing family reasons.

“I need to step away from this role to deal with family matters,” Wilson told ESPN Central Texas, “I will finish out the year teaching at the school, and offensive coordinator Luther Kirkpatrick will take over as the new head football coach, effective immediately.”

Wilson was in his sixth season with the Indians, coming over from Blooming Grove in 2008. His record was 27-31-1, with two playoff appearances in 2009 and 2011.  The Indians are 0-4 this season.

Riesel Principal Steve English will take over as Athletic Director.

Riesel next plays at Bruceville-Eddy this Friday.
