"It's bad news for East Texas and good news for Dereck Rush.
Dereck is one of the top young coaches in East Texas.
He's done a great job at John Tyler.
He's won 42 games in five seasons.
This team might win a state championship.
He's leaving a great situation that he's helped turn around.
He's going to an area that's exploding population-wise.
It's going to be a great situation for him.
You've got to be happy for Dereck."
