Texas A&M University-Commerce has announced a comprehensive national search for its next head football coach after the university and current Head Football Coach David Bailiff could not agree on terms for a contract extension. As a result, coach Bailiff leaves the position at the end of his current contract, which expires on December 31, 2022. “Coach Bailiff is a great man of faith who has represented Lion Athletics with class,” said Interim Director of Athletics Eric Coleman. “We wish him well in his future endeavors.” Coach Bailiff took over the Lion football program in 2019 and went 23-13 in three seasons on the field. Under Bailiff’s guidance, 36 student-athletes earned all-conference honors, and four earned Academic All-America honors.
For the first time in nearly three years, the Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s basketball team reached the 100-point threshold as it drubbed Arlington Baptist 101-46 on Monday night in the Lions’ first home game of the regular season in the Field House.
They canceled the Mt Pleasant Girls’ basketball games for Tuesday, Nov. 29. The coach has been unsuccessful in finding a replacement for Edgewood.
