LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Monday, the Springlake-Earth ISD Board approved former Red Raider and NFL Player Manny Ramirez to become one of the assistant coaches for the Wolverines.

According to head football coach Israel DeLeon, Ramirez will be the Offensive Coordinator and offensive line coach for the Wolverines.

Ramirez will start at Springlake-Earth ISD when summer workouts begin and will be a teacher/coach starting in the Fall of 2019.

“He wanted to focus on his family,” Springlake-Earth Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Israel Deleon said. “His focus is his kids and he is excited.”

According to coach DeLeon, Mannys’ wife (Iris Ramirez) is from Springlake-Earth and during his NFL career, Manny would spend his summers and off-seasons in Earth, Texas, at his home there.

Deleon would go on to say in our phone conversation, “This is a home run for us, a home run for our kids, this is big-time.”
