MHS announces new head coach

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A new coach for the Monterey Plainsmen has been chosen.

Longtime Monterey assistant coach Todd Pearson was officially introduced Friday morning as the new Plainsmen head football coach and athletic coordinator.

Pearson, who has been at Monterey since 2002, takes over for James Morton, who resigned last week to become the head football coach at District 2-5A rival Midland Lee.

The Lubbock Independent School District Board of Trustees will meet on Thursday, May 14th to discuss the decision to hire Pearson.

Pearson is a native of Friona and graduate of Perryton High School. He has been an assistant under Morton since coming from Kermit. He has also had stints at Cypress Fairbanks in the Houston area, Kress, Canyon and Amarillo High. He has coached guards and centers at Monterey.

A graduate of West Texas A&M, Pearson played professionally for the Philadelphia Eagles after earning Division I-AA all-America honors at West Texas A&M University.
