KISD Reassigns Seven Lakes Football Coach to Paetow High School

By George Slaughter

The Katy Independent School District, in an unexpected move, has reassigned football coach and athletics director Lydell Wilson to Paetow High School to serve as a teacher/coach.

Wilson coached the Spartans from 2012-17. Last year’s squad finished with a 4-6 record.

His overall record at Seven Lakes was 30-32, with both the 2012 and 2014 teams making the bi-district round of the playoffs.

Seven Lakes staff and boosters were told of the move in a February 7 e-mail, which also said that the processing of selecting a new head football coach was underway.

“Please know that our commitment to the students, staff, and community of Seven Lakes is our highest priority as we move forward,” the statement read in part.

Wilson began his duties at Paetow, the district’s newest high school, on February 12.

The Katy News has reached out to school district officials for more information on this developing story.
