Former JT Coach Dereck Rush In at Oak Ridge
6:45 PM Update
The Conroe ISD School Board tells KETK they have voted to accept Dereck Rush as the new head football coach at Oak Ridge HS.
Tuesday Night Update.
A source at John Tyler tells KETK that Dereck Rush has informed his players that he is leaving the program.
A source at Conroe ISD now confirms that Dereck Rush will be recommended for the Oak Ridge HS head football coach job.
Coach Rush and Tyler ISD Athletic Director Rod Kaspar are scheduled to address the media on Wednesday morning.
Back in January of 2011, then Tyler ISD Athletic Director Danny Long accepted a position as Conroe ISD's AD.
If reports are true, this would mean a reunion for the two coaches.
A source at TISD tells KETK that Rush has interviewed at Oak Ridge, but could not confirm if Rush would be recommended.
But the Conroe ISD Board of Trustees are scheduled to consider a new hire Tuesday night at their meeting.
Phone calls from KETK to both Rush and Long were not returned.
