Liberty-Eylau Head Coach Steve Wells Retires


After 31 years of coaching Liberty-Eylau head coach Steve Wells has decided to hang up the whistle.

Wells offically announced his retirement from the profession Monday afternoon.

Wells finishes his coaching career with a 95-87 record.

His coaching career included stops at Hooks, where he was assistant for 10 years, before becoming the head coach of the Hornets for his final 5 years with the program. Following Hooks, Wells had head coaching stints at Mineola and Jacksonville, and spent a season as an assistant at  Nacogdoches, before becoming the Liberty-Eylau offensive coordinator in 2013.

Wells was promoted to HFC/AD at Liberty-Eylau before the 2014-15 season.

Steve Wells’ first job in the coaching profession was with the Leopards as an assistant coach in the late 1980s.

Steve Wells said, “Like I said, Liberty-Eylau is a special place. I started here in 1988-89, and spent three years, wonderful years, here. Ronnie Ingram and Dave Green were my head coaches here, and then I get to come back and end it at the same place where I started, where I got my first opportunity to be the head coach is really special. We’ve had a lot of great times here over the last five years.”

Liberty-Eylau Superintendent Ronnie Thompson tells NBC 6 Sports there isn’t a timetable for hiring the next head coach, but he is looking for a candidate who has either head coaching experience or coordinator experience.
