Wildcatters Announced Organization's First Head Coach 12/18/13
The West Texas Wildcatters introduced Jon Lyles as the organization's first head coach on Wednesday afternoon.
Lyles has lots of experience in arena football, having been coaching since 2004. He spent last year as the offensive coordinator of the AFL's Pittsburgh Power. In 2010 as the head coach for the IFL's Amarillo Venom, he led the team to a 14-4 season and a berth in the conference semifinals. As a result, he was selected as a finalist for IFL's coach of the year.
Lyles said he is excited to be in West Texas and a part of the football community. He wants to set a standard of football excellence in the basin, as well as have players that are good role models and involved in the community.
