Butler Appointed Athletic Director
Texas College is pleased to announce that Randy Butler has been appointed as Athletic Director for the Steers. Butler, a proud alumnus of Texas College, eagerly looks forward to serving his alma mater as he steers the College's intercollegiate athletic programs in a new direction.

Aside from his tenure as a student, Butler is no stranger to Texas College, nor this role, having previously served as Athletic Director from 2012-2013. In addition, Butler has served in a multitude of administrative roles for the College within the Office of Admission and the Office of Financial Aid, and even coached running backs for the Steers. Now, heading into the 2022-2023 seasons, he aims to pick up where left off.

Butler is an East Texas native and alumnus of Chapel Hill High School. He holds the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Texas College. Butler is also a proud Veteran of the United States Navy.
Jackson Named Head Football Coach
Texas College is pleased to announce that Jarrail Jackson has been named Head Football Coach for the Steers. Jackson, a former University of Oklahoma receiver and returner standout, brings a wealth of energy and experience to the College, both as a coach and player.

Most recently serving as Tyler Junior College’s Offensive Coordinator, his 17-year professional career has spanned a multitude of roles with various teams at the professional, collegiate, and secondary level. Notably inclusive of the aforementioned are the XFL’s Dallas Renegades, the Arizona Cardinals, the Miami Dolphins, Dartmouth College, Washington State, and Mississippi State, just to name a few. Now, Coach Jackson has been handed the reigns to the Steer Football program in preparation of the 2022 season.

As no stranger to Tyler and East Texas, Coach Jackson’s well-established rapport within the region and beyond positions Texas College for an exciting future. Well-known and respected for his ability to recruit, accompanied with his breadth of professional experiences, of which has situated him alongside coaching legends such as Bob Stoops and Hal Mumme, the father of the “air raid” offense, the naming of Coach Jackson as the Steers’ Head Football Coach will undoubtedly serve as a benefit to the campus both on and off the field.

In addition to his notable professional tenure, Coach Jackson’s career as a player is likewise impressive. Originally a Houston native, Coach Jackson played football at Houston Yates High School and continued his student-athlete career as an Oklahoma Sooner, where he earned First Team All-Big 12 honors as a receiver and kick returner. Memorably, Jackson is noted for returning a punt for a touchdown in the 1996 Texas-OU game, which sparked the Sooners to a 30-27 overtime victory over the Longhorns. As a senior in Bob Stoops’ first year at Oklahoma, in which Mike Leach served as the offensive coordinator, Jackson caught 44 passes for a team-leading 572 yards and a team-high six touchdowns. Following his collegiate career, Jackson spent two years with the Buffalo Bills and also played several arena football league seasons. Coach Jackson holds the Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma.

Retool Your School 2022
Jake Martin, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer, is presented the grant award at the 2022 Home Depot Retool Your School Winners' Announcement Ceremony in Atlanta, GA.
I am pleased to share that Texas College has submitted our proposal for the 2022 Retool Your School grant. The College genuinely appreciates all of your efforts in making this year's competition a success by securing a $50,000 grant for a campus project. 
Following a review of campus needs, it has been decided that the 2022 Retool Your School project will be the renovation of locker rooms for four different intercollegiate athletic teams including Football, Volleyball, Men’s Basketball, and Women’s Basketball, as well as the visitor's locker room in the Gus F. Taylor Gymnasium. This renovation project includes the installation of new lockers, mirrors, seating, flooring, and dry erase boards.
The updated locker facility will not only provide a renovated space for use throughout their respective seasons, but will also serve as facets of recruitment and retention for current and future student-athletes, as well as a morale booster that carries over to the benefit of alumni, faculty, staff, and the College community.
Again, Texas College thanks each of you for your efforts in 2022's Retool Your School, as well as your continued support - all of which has made this possible.
Thank you!
