The coaching search at Tyler Lee high school took a new twist on Wednesday when one of the two finalists pulled out.
ESPN East Texas Sports has learned that Corsicana’s Phil Castles has withdrawn his name from consideration.
The Tyler Independent School District had narrowed the search to fill the position of head football coach and campus athletic coordinator to Castles and Fairfield high school’s Darrell Piske.
Longtime Lee head coach Mike Owens retired in June and the TISD selection committee did not retain interim coach Randy Huffstickler.
