BEEVILLE – Beeville Independent School District Athletic Director Troy Moses is leaving Beeville.

Moses’ resignation is expected to be received by the BISD school board at its April 16 meeting.

“I have resigned my position with BISD as athletic director/head football coach effective May 31, 2013. I will be accepting a position at Canyon Lake High School in Comal ISD,” Moses said.

“I will finish out the year here in Beeville.”

It is understood that Moses will take over as the offensive coordinator for Canyon Lake High School Hawks.

Posting for a replacement has already been in process, and applications will be reviewed and interviews set up for the top athletic spot at BISD in the near future.

Moses was at A.C. Jones for four years. His record in football was 14-26 in the regular season and 1-1 in the playoffs. The 2011 team went to the postseason on a 5-5 regular season record. The Trojans defeated their bi-district foe from San Antonio’s District 29 in the opening round, but were soundly defeated by a tough Calallen team in the area round to finish at 6-6 on the year. It was the best performance by the Trojans under Moses’ tutelage.

The Trojan athletic department lost its coordinator of the girls’ athletic department as well this spring as Katina Walker also tendered her resignation and will be moving back to her home in Pflugerville.

Moses replaced Chris Soza at A.C. Jones and has been plagued by declining numbers in all sports. The Trojans are classified and have had to compete in Division 4A but have always been at the bottom of enrollment criteria.

The Trojans have recently struggled against schools in the same classification that have significantly larger enrollments. Present numbers, if they hold up, would drop the Trojans into a 3A division in the next UIL realignment in February. That is a division in which most believe that the Trojans could be highly competitive.

Moses came to Beeville after a tenure as head football coach in Lockhart. He and his family have been fixtures at all the Trojan athletic events over the years.

“My family and I have enjoyed our time here in Beeville and have made some lifelong friendships. My wife and I have gotten very attached to the kids that we work with everyday, and we will miss then dearly,” Moses said.

“I want to thank each one for all the hard work and effort they have given us. The kids are the reason we do what we do, and the students of Beeville have been great.”
