ODESSA - Rip off the interim tag: the Permian Panthers have their next head football coach.
The day after Permian shut out El Paso Coronado in the Bi-District round of the 6A Div. I playoffs, ECISD announced that Ellison would be named the full-team head coach of MOJO.
“In addition to running the football program well and leading the team to a successful season, Coach Ellison did a strong job as the campus athletic coordinator for all sports,” said ECISD Executive Director of Athletics Bruce McCrary. “Those are the things we look for and believe Jeff did well. He deserves to have the job.”
In his first year as the Panthers head man, Permian is 8-3 and will face Arlington Lamar in the Area round, next Friday, at 3 P.M. at Abilene Christian University.
