“On Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017, parents and guardians of the Taylor High School football team were notified that their head coach was placed on administrative leave until further notice,” said a statement released by the school district on Wednesday morning.
“In his absence, assistant coach Joe Sheffy will be taking his place in leading the Taylor High School football team this season,” the statement also said.
The Katy ISD statement did say that the administration has confidence in Sheffy’s ability to lead the team for the remainder of this season. Sheffy is a former head coach of Mayde Creek High School. He had a 67-86-2 record at Mayde Creek from 1992 to 2006.
“Sheffy is a certified, highly experienced individual who is well versed on the needs of the team,” the district statement said.
Taylor lost its season opener against Magnolia on Sept. 15.
