WARREN, Texas — Warren has hired Corpus Christi Calallen assistant Austin Smithey as their next athletic director and head football coach.

Smithey spent seven years with the Wildcats.

Warren is coming off a (3-6) season.

The Warriors won their first three games of the year before dropping their final six outings.

Warren hasn't had a winning season since 2005. That's also the last time the Warriors advanced to the playoffs.
