Todd Dodge said Friday morning that he has been hired as the head football coach and athletic director at Westlake High School in Austin.
Dodge will officially start his new job Tuesday.
Dodge said he met with Marble Falls players on Friday morning telling the Mustangs of his move.
Dodge guided the Marble Falls athletic program for the past two years. The Mustangs football team had back-to-back 4-6 seasons under Dodge and went into the final week of the 2013 season needing a victory over Leander to make the playoffs. Marble Falls lost that game when they were unable to stop the Lions on a late fourth-down play in the fourth quarter.
Dodge replaces Darren Allman at Westlake. Allman took the Colleyville Heritage football job earlier in the week.
Dodge said he doesn’t know how many coaches he will be able to take with him to Westlake.
