The Hays ISD board of trustees approved the hiring of Josh Kirkland as the next head football coach at Kyle Lehman high school.
Kirkland comes to Lehman from Parkland High in El Paso where he finished 8-4 in his only season as the Matadors’ head coach.
Kirkland, who is 33, replaces Todd Raymond, who resigned in April to become athletic director for the Pflugerville school district. In five seasons with the Lobos, Raymond compiled a 9-41 mark.
Since its first varsity season in 2006, Lehman has posted a winning record only once, finishing 6-4 in 2011.
