McGregor head football coach and athletic director Judd Thrash is under investigation by the McGregor ISD.
A source tells KWTX Thrash is the focus of an investigation by legal counsel into the Bulldogs' athletic department and issues within that department.
The school board met on Jan. 17 and in closed session before unanimously approving the action.
Here's the quote from the school board meeting minutes:
"The Board entered into Closed Session from 8:17 p.m. until 10:11 p.m. to discuss the employment of the Head Football Coach/Athletic Director and also discuss the Superintendent’s Annual Performance Evaluation.
Following the Closed Session, a motion was made by Frank Graves and seconded by Jim Bates to approve a recommendation by Superintendent James Lenamon that MISD’s legal counsel be retained to investigate issues within the Athletic Department. The motion passed unanimously."
Thrash was hired in 2017, and has a record of 10-11 in 2 seasons with the Bulldogs, including one playoff berth in his first year.
