Lubbock ISD trustees named Mike Meeks as the Executive Director of Athletics at their meeting today, following the summer retirement of AD Mark Ball.

Meeks has served as assistant athletic director since 2013. Prior to joining the Athletic Department, Meeks coached at his high school alma mater, Coronado High School, where he was the head track coach and a varsity football assistant. He coached students in football and track at Robert E. Lee High School in Midland, Texas, from 1995 to 2005 and served in similar positions in Ft. Stockton and El Paso - Socorro. Meeks earned his bachelor's degree from Eastern New Mexico University where he has also done graduate work in Education Administration.

Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr., said of Meeks, "Mike has a proven record of success and has done an outstanding job of running the Athletic Department since Mark Ball's retirement. No one works harder, has a bigger heart for what is in the best interest of student athletes or has a better attitude than Coach Meeks. We engaged in a search firm when this job opened up, but the right guy was already here. He is ready to build on the work done by Coach Ball and take our programs to the next level."
