La Joya ISD Reassigns Palmview Football Coach

Manny Flores was the first coach ever hired to run the La Joya Palmview HS athletic programs and football team, but after five full seasons and four losses in 2013, La Joya ISD decided the September 19th game against Edinburg would be his last on the Lobos sidelines. La Joya ISD reassigned Manny Flores within the school district's athletic department on Saturday, ending his time as Palmview coach with an overall record of 16-38, 9-29 in District 30-5A play.

While changing coaches mid-season is highly unusual, LJISD Athletic Director Victor Garza said "It was a decision the district felt had to be made at this time for the best interests of the team."

Garza confirmed Palmview assistant coach Mage Requenez has been appointed interim head coach effective immediately.
