Kent Jackson headed home to Seminole

SEMINOLE, TX (KCBD) -

After three years at Coronado, Kent Jackson is leaving. He was approved as the new Head Football Coach at Seminole on Monday night.

The big question is, why would he leave a program going to the highest classification of 6A for an Indian program moving up to 4A?

"It just comes down to one word why I would do it...home!"

Jackson is from Seminole and his parents still live there.

"It's the thing that's been in the back of my mind my entire career. Seminole is such a good job and a good stable environment. It's not something that comes open very often. To have this opportunity at this point in my career, I feel like the good Lord has shown me favor."

In three years at Coronado, Jackson went 5-25. He told the Mustangs this morning and met with the Indians Tuesday afternoon.

Jackson replaces Chris Burtch who resigned after 10 years. He led the Indians to the playoffs his first 8 seasons, but failed to reach the postseason in the last 2 years.

Coronado says he will remain at the school until April 30 before completely departing for Seminole.
