Lubbock ISD announced Tuesday morning (January 19th) that Seth Parr, head football coach of Coronado High School, was leaving the school for a new opportunity.

The district released the following statement announcing the move.

Seth Parr, Coronado High School athletic coordinator/head coach, has announced he is leaving his position effective January 31. Coach Parr will accept a similar position with Anna ISD, pending that board of trustees’ approval.

 

Coach Parr led the Mustangs to the Class 5A, Division I Regional Finals during the 2020 season, posting a 12-1 record. He has been at Coronado seven years, with an overall record of 59-26. He led the Mustangs to the playoffs the past five years, winning or sharing four district championships. His 2017 team was a state quarterfinalist.

 

“We are grateful for the leadership and vision that Coach Parr has established for the football program at CHS,” said Mike Meeks, Lubbock ISD athletic director. “He took over a program that struggled his first two seasons, and elevated it to one of the best in the region.”

 

The search for the next Coronado head football coach will begin immediately.


The news was then reported by Matt Stepp, a prominent high school football reporter. Stepp confirmed that Parr would be moving on to Anna High School, a 4A high school northeast of Dallas.

Coronado and Seth Parr released a statement via Twitter thanking all of the former and current players for making his six seasons at Coronado so successful:

Parr enjoyed two undefeated regular seasons and numerous playoff appearances during his tenure as a Mustang. Coronado will be replacing prolific passer Sawyer Robertson, who is headed to Mississippi State to play both football and baseball, as well as several other star players that led the way to Coronado's most successful runs under Parr.
