Jason Johns Takes Over At Wichita Falls

Jason Johns has been named the new head football coach at Wichita Falls High School, replacing Chris Ross, who recently moved on to Cedar Park High School. Johns had served as the Coyotes' defensive coordinator for the past four years.

Johns, 32, takes over one of the state's oldest and winningest programs, although the team slipped to 4-6 last year and missed the playoffs.

Johns played linebacker for Odessa High School and is a 1995 graduate of Angelo State University. He served as a volunteer assistant at Angelo State in 1999-2000, then moved to Olney High School for two years before coming to Wichita Falls. At Olney, Johns was an assistant coach in football, basketball and baseball.

Ross, 34, takes over a program that reached the state quarterfinals. He replaces Clark Weaver, the only coach Cedar Park has had in its young history.
