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.

    Wow, knew he was going to take the job and lied about it. What a great example to the children!!!! Just like every coach, only cares about the next job that pays more. The couldn’t care any less about the program they are in…

    $100,000 + salary, new vehicle every 3 months (Never had anything but paper plates on his vehicles), subsidized housing in Horseshoe Bay, no teaching assignments other than coaching, and in return two back to back 4-6 records. Pretty bad return on investment.

    Well now. I guess the Dodge had to Get out of Dodge as the old saying goes. Maybe now the MFISD can recruit a coach for less money and save the tax payers a little money..

    I don’t blame Coach Dodge for leaving Marble Falls. The lack of support by the community says it all. He was always positive about his players,coaches and the administration. However, from the beginning Dodge was criticized over his salary and aggressive approach. Look at the road games. Where were the Parents, Teachers and Students? If he saw support in future, he would have stuck with it.

    Marble Falls is quickly becoming Granite Shoals. He was smart to leave with skid marks! Watch what he does now!
