Brad Thiessen named new AISD Athletic Director

The search for Tex Nolan's replacement as AISD athletic director is over... And the search for a new football coach at Amarillo High begins.

Brad Thiessen will take over the reigns in Amarillo, after four years as the head coach and athletic director at Amarillo High.

Thiessen will officially take over after the first of the year, and the Sandies will start their head coaching search after that.

Thiessen has served as athletic director in Roby, Stratford, and Levelland.

Even though he's been only at Amarillo High in the past, Thiessen says he's excited to get to work with all the schools in his new role.
