Ennis moves to hire Kirbyville football coach

The Ennis coaching search committee has recommended Kirbyville coach Jack Alvarez to be the next head football coach, according to the Ennis ISD.

The Ennis Board of Trustees will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday to make a decision on the committee's recommendation of Alvarez.

As head coach and athletic director at Kirbyville, Alvarez turned a two-year winless team into a nine-time playoff contender, including state finalist appearances in 2008 and 2009 in Class 3A.

Alvarez accepted the committee's recommendation on Jan. 22.
