A familiar name could soon become the new head boys’ basketball coach at Gold-Burg High School.
Gold-Burg Independent School District superintendent Roger Ellis reports Petrolia’s Gordon Williams will be presented to the school board at its next regularly scheduled meeting in June.
In a related matter, Gold-Burg has posted an opening for its head football coaching spot – which has been vacated by the departing Jay Johnson.
Gordon’s wife, Kim Williams, has already accepted the position to be Gold-Burg’s next principal, and she has been approved.
Petrolia produced an outstanding 2016-17 season, with a record of 27-7 and appearance in the Conference 2A-Region II quarterfinals before bowing out to eventual state champion Muenster.
(Should Gordon Williams be approved by the school board next month, look for a more detailed story on the proposed hire then.) Read more in the May 27 Bowie News.
