Current Bowie High School girls’ basketball coach Colby Davis-Pastusek has accepted a similar position with Wichita Falls’ Rider High School.
The hire will not become official until officially approved by the Wichita Falls Independent School District school board.
The next WFISD work session isn’t scheduled until May 10, and school district officials declined comment when Wichita Falls Times Record Zach Duncan asked about Davis-Pastusek taking the job.
“It is what it is,” Davis-Pastusek said when the Bowie News questionned her about taking over as Rider’s coach.
She will replace Ramsey Ghazal as Rider’s head coach. Ghazal left for Glen Rose, where he will be part of the same coaching family as former Nocona volleyball leader Sandy Langford.
Davis-Pastusek has been Bowie’s head girls’ basketball coach for the past seven seasons, leading the Lady Rabbits to five regional tournament appearances.
The Seymour native has developed a reputation as one of the top girls’ basketball coaches in the region, coming off a 26-9 season in which Bowie lost to Brock in the regional quarterfinals.
