VERNON, TX (KAUZ) -

Vernon ISD promoted defensive coordinator Matthew Hoover to be its new Head Football Coach and Athletic Director at its school board meeting Wednesday night.

Hoover had been in Vernon for about 10 years, and spent the past five running the defense for outgoing Head Coach Mark Bateman, who resigned last month.

He told us he believes his existing relationship with the players helped him get the job.
