DuBose hires 3 new assistants, staff complete

New Brady High School head football coach and athletic director, Davy DuBose, was in town Tuesday and said he has a house now, but he and his family are still a couple of weeks away from being settled. “I expect my wife and I will be moved in next week, and my three newly-hired assistant coaches will be here settled by Aug. 1,” he told the Standard-Herald on Tuesday. The new coach replaced Nathan Headrick, who resigned after serving only two months to take a graduate assistant coaching position at Texas A&M University. Headrick replaced two-year Brady coach and friend, Jay Jones, who resigned to join his father in private business in Abilene. DuBose, who inked his contract with Brady school officials on May 31, did announce Tuesday that his coaching staff is complete with the hiring of three newcomers earlier this week. They include his first assistant from Howe, Todd Bandy, who will serve as the defensive coordinator in football. He will also be the off-season coordinator, the assistant athletic director and assistant track coach. “Todd has been with me for the past six years. He joined me at Pleasant Grove, a 3A school just outside of Texarkana, and was at Howe, a 2A school near Sherman, for the past five years,” DuBose said. Bandy’s wife, Laurie, will be a secretary in the Brady ISD system, DuBose said. The second coach to join the staff is an old Brady boy, Bill Brown, who will be coming from San Antonio O’Connor (5A). He also has been at San Antonio Holmes, Early and Pleasanton in recent years. A Brady High School graduate, Brown played for coach Paul Jette in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Bill’s father, the late Bill Brown, was a quarterback for the Brady Bulldogs in 1949-50. Brown will be the offensive and defensive line coach and head baseball coach. DuBose said Brown would help with the off-season program. Brown’s wife, Denise, will be a teacher in the BISD system, the coach said. The newest hired assistant coach is the son of the head coach, Clint DuBose, 28, a former graduate assistant at Texas A&M-Commerce. The younger DuBose is single, and a graduate of Henderson State in Arkadelphia, Ark., where he played football for three years. “Clint, who most recently was a personal trainer in Dallas, will coach in junior high school, be the junior high off-season coordinator, handle the power-lifting program and coach junior high track,” his father said. Clint DuBose was a first team all-state linebacker at Grapeland High School while his father was coach in the East Texas school.
