PRICE, Texas — Colmesneil is looking for a new Athletic Director and Head Football Coach after Cody Day accepted the same position at Carlisle Thursday night.
Day, who has had a knack of making struggling programs competitive, leaves Colmesneil after four seasons with an (18-21) record. Last year the Bulldogs advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2017, missing out on the programs first playoff win since 2013 by a single point.
Before arriving to Colmesneil, Day led his alma mater West Hardin for three seasons. Though the Oilers posted a (5-23) record in that time, they showed plenty of improvement. After fielding a winless team in 2017, the Oilers made the playoffs in 2018, finishing (4-6). That appearance ended a playoff drought that dated back to 2011.
Carlisle competes in in 2A-Divison II and has advanced to the playoffs ten-straight seasons. The Indians finished (11-2) in Clay Baker's final year, before he moved on to 4A Henderson.
