UNION GROVE, TX — The Union Grove ISD school board on Monday night unanimously voted to hire Roger Adams as the district’s athletic director and head football coach. He received a Union Grove T-shirt, keys to the school and will start work today.
Adams spent the past four years as the head football coach and athletic director at New Diana, where he compiled a 17-23 record. The Eagles finished 1-9 in 2011. Adams’ best season at New Diana was 2009, when he led them to a 7-3 record.
“He has a passion for kids and a passion for athletics,” Union Grove Superintendent Brian Gray said. “He has East Texas ties. We feel very fortunate to have him.”
Union Grove hired Adams to a two-year contract that takes effect today. Trustees allowed Gray to negotiate a salary with Adams.
