Coach Bob Shipley will conclude his stellar four year career at Brownwood ISD as he announced his resignation this morning to take a new position at the University of Texas.
“While we are disappointed to see Coach Shipley leave, we are happy for him and the great opportunity he has,” said Brownwood ISD Superintendent, Dr. Reece Blincoe. “Bob has done a great job for all BISD athletic programs.”
Shipley has been named to the newly created position of Football Analyst in the player personnel department at The University of Texas, head coach Mack Brown announced Monday.
“I’m very excited about joining the Texas football program and appreciate Coach Brown giving me this opportunity,” Shipley said. “I believe in him. He's the kind of coach a dad dreams of his son being able to grow up and play for, and my sons have had an incredible experience at Texas. I think I bring a unique prospective to the staff. Having been a college coach, a longtime high school coach and having been around the program for almost 10years with my sons, this is a position that just seemed right for me. Assisting with recruiting is something that I have experience in and love to do.”
In his role, Shipley will assist with the coordination and implementation of the daily operational, administrative and logistical processes within the football program. He will co-coordinate the walk-on program, assist with film cut-ups and distribution of prospective student-athletes to coaching staff, support the planning and execution of the annual high school coaching clinic and the summer football camp, and assist with hosting prospective student-athletes and guests on official and unofficial visits to campus. In addition, he will assist with the high school relations, updating recruiting lists, monitoring contacts and evaluations conducted by the coaching staff, and securing transcripts in collaboration with the student services department.
