Jarryd Taylor hired as next Ozona head football coach, athletic director

Local Sports

OZONA– The Ozona Lions knew coming into the 2020 football season that they would be under the direction of a new head coach, and after a month-long search, a former Lion will lead the program.

Jarryd Taylor will return to his stopping grounds as the next head football coach and athletic director of Ozona. Taylor graduated from Ozona in 2004 and comes over from Midland High School, where he spent the last four years as the linebackers coach for the Bulldogs.

“It’s been amazing so far,” Taylor said. “I think the biggest change has been the amount of phone calls I’ve been getting and I’ve talked on the phone so much. I’m not used to that. But it’s been really fun so far and it’s going to be a lot of fun getting to be back in my hometown.”

Taylor’s father, Steve Taylor, was the athletic director and head football coach from 1999-2004.
