After four years away from the area former Lindsay assistant

and Sacred Heart Head Coach, Charles Boles has accepted the position

as the new athletic director and head football coach of the Lindsay

Knights.

Boles was officially hired by the Lindsay Board of Trustees at a

Monday night school board meeting. He has spent the last two years as

head coach and athletic director of Holy Trinity in Temple, Texas.

“I am extremely excited about the opportunity,” Boles said. “Lindsay

is a great school with great pride and tradition, so I am really

excited to get started.”

Boles was an assistant at Lindsay from 1996 to 1998 before becoming an

assistant at Cooper and Whitewright. He then was hired as the head

football coach of Sacred Heart in 2003, where he led the Tigers to a

state championship that same year. Boles accumulated a 42-15 record in

his time with the Tigers.

In 2008 Boles left to take the Bells job before spending the last two

seasons at Holy Trinity.

“We felt like he knew Lindsay from his previous experience and he was

aware of traditions and expectations that we have,” Lindsay

superintendent Dennis Holt said. “We felt that he was a good fit for

our community and with the system that we have. He understands how

much we want to excel in every sport and he wanted himself and his

family to be a part of that.”

Ever since leaving the area in 2008, Boles has always thought of

returning to the Cooke County area that he enjoyed so much.

“It has always been on my mind, it’s a very special place,” Boles said

about returning. “I love the area and I am excited to be back there.”

Boles will not only be taking over as athletic director, he will also

be returning to the classroom. Boles is a math teacher and will be

teaching a couple of classes along with his other duties.

“He asked me if he gets to teach classes,” Holt said. “In today’s time

that is a positive, because in Class A I need those folks in the

classroom and hallways showing the kids that they are a teacher first.

I feel like we got a very strong coach but a very strong teacher too.”

Boles replaces Cody Bounds who resigned earlier this month to take the

athletic director position at Bonham ISD.

Boles and his wife Ann have four children, Adam which will be a

senior, a daughter Teresa that will be a junior, a son Andy entering

seventh grade and their youngest daughter Rachel will be a fifth

grader.
