Meeting in special session Tuesday night, the Cameron ISD school board accepted the recommendation of Superintendent Allan Sapp to hire former Yoe defensive coordinator Tommy Brashear to succeed Rick Rhoades as CISD athletic director.
The board unanimously approved the the recommendation, handing over all control to the 1992 Yoe High graduate.
"It's great to be a Yoemen," said Brashear. "It's like a dream come true for me. The last two, three, four years maybe I have been ready professionally in my mind to take the next step. Coach Rhoades had always told me if he had ever left he would recommend me for the job. My family likes it here, I like it here. I love this community and this is a great place to be and raise kids. I can't think of any other place I'd rather be than the head football coach and athletic director here at Yoe High School."
