MCGREGOR, Texas (KWTX) The McGregor Independent School District is expected to discuss the employment of its athletic director.

Judd Thrash has been the football coach and athletic director for the past two years.

He has been on paid administrative leave since January.

According to the district’s Board of Trustees agenda, two items explicitly mention the athletic department.

One item says trustees will discuss “investigation report related to issues within the Athletic Department, including consultation with legal counsel and possible vote related to the issues discussed.”

The next item will discuss personnel including “consideration of Athletic Director’s employment and possible vote related to same.”

Thrash’s attorney previously said his client was surprised by the move to put him on paid leave and would talk to investigators and cooperate to resolve the situation.

In two seasons at McGregor, Thrash has taken the Bulldogs to the playoffs once in his tenure.

Thursday’s meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the district’s headquarters.
