Blanket ISD school board holding special meeting to reconsider AD's contract

The Blanket ISD school board is holding a special meeting Monday to reconsider their decision of firing Athletic Director/Head Football Coach Brent Williamson.

That meeting will start at 7 p.m. inside of the school's cafeteria, according to Blanket ISD Superintendent David Whisenhunt and Coach Williamson.

Williamson and Whisenhunt both confirmed to KTXS that school board members will again vote on whether or not to keep the coach at the school district.

Last week, the school board voted 5-2 not to renew Williamson's contract. Coach Williamson said he felt blindsided by the decision after just one season of coaching the football team.

Whisenhunt told KTXS that he disagreed with the school board's decision.
