The DeSoto ISD board voted 4-1 to approve Claude Mathis as DeSoto's head football coach Monday evening.
The move comes more than a month after Mike Robinson resigned Dec. 7 as the football program’s leader after just 10 months on the job. And it follows a tumultuous two years that left DeSoto searching for its third head coach in as many seasons.
DeSoto narrowed its list to semifinalists last week and then interviewed finalists Friday, according to two sources with knowledge of the hiring process.
