Former Texas A&M and NFL football player and local business owner Ty Warren confirmed Friday that he no longer wants the Somerville head football coaching position.
“I would like to personally thank [Somerville school] board president Bryan [Crook], board members and [Somerville superintendent] Karla Sparks for considering me for the head coach position at Somerville,” Warren said in a text message to The Eagle. “Although we had great excitement about the idea of that happening, timing and separate agendas wouldn’t allow for both sides to come to terms on myself becoming the Yeguas’ next head coach. ... I wish the good folks in Somerville the best going forward.”
Pulling his name from consideration for the opening at Somerville was a mutual decision between Warren and Sparks, according to Warren.
A previous arrangement was in place to have Warren step into the role after starting a teacher certification program.
The job listing was posted on the Somerville school district website on May 1. According to the listing, prior experience and teacher certification are required.
Warren said he is optimistic about future coaching opportunities, and his focus will remain on his search for the right one.
