Chris Jones Hired as Giddings AD

by Mike Organ

Giddings ISD appointed Chris Jones as the Athletic Director and Head Football Coach this past week. Jones comes to Giddings from Post High School where he held the same positions. Ironically, Post was in the same district as Idalou. Post was 3-7 this past season. In 2009 the Antelopes were 8- 4 losing to Bushland in the Area game.

Prior to Post, Jones coached at LaMarque in 2007 and at Refugio from 2003 to 2007. He was head coach at both schools compiling a 44-17 record. He was Assistant Head Coach at Sinton from 1998- 2002. Prior to the head coaching stints he assisted at Bryan, Honey Grove, and Frenship High School at Wolfforth.

Jones attended Texas Tech University on a track and field scholarship after graduating from Sealy High School.

Jones takes over a Giddings program loaded with athletes. The expectations are very high at Giddings this coming season.
