DeSoto ISD Board welcomes back Claude Mathis

DeSoto will re-hire football coach Claude Mathis on Monday after the DeSoto ISD board of trustees unanimously voted Saturday morning to allow Mathis' Jan. 17 resignation to be rescinded. Mathis announced he'd be leaving DeSoto to become an assistant at the University of Houston at the team banquet on Jan. 15. After two weeks at Houston, Mathis had a change of heart and resigned at Houston.
Because DeSoto had already posted the new position, there were several administrative steps needed before he could formally return to DeSoto and the next to last step was the board vote to approve an action by the DeSoto ISD administration.
Mathis has been at DeSoto since the 2008 season and guided the Eagles to several high profile playoff runs. DeSoto went four rounds deep in the 2010 playoffs under the 37-year-old Mathis.
