As first reported by David Robinett of Big Country Sports, pending board approval on Thursday, Sweetwater will hire Temple’s Ben Mcgehee as their new head football coach.
McGehee is no stranger to the Big Country, his resume includes stops at Abilene Cooper and Brownwood. He’s fresh off a state title appearance with Temple, where the Wildcats made a fantastic run through a gauntlet no one expected them to make it out of. That run included what many believe is the upset of the year when they took down undefeated and odds on title favorite Manvel.
Temple’s appearance at the title games was preceded by Shane Mobley’s Sweetwater, who also fell in the finals by a score of 24-6 to a juggernaut team from West Orange-Stark. Mobley left Sweetwater for Sealy in January.
