Back and forth, in and out, and now, back in again.

Ector County I-S-D has hired Leon Fuller as their New Athletic Director.

On June 5th, Superintendant Wendall Sollis announced his plan to nominate Coach Fuller, a former University of Texas defensive coordinator and Big Spring High assistant coach.

But on June 8th, Fuller, with no explanation, withdrew his application.

The district looked like it would continue without a replacement for Gary Gaines, who turned his resignation on January 22nd.

But sometime between the 8th and now, Fuller put his hat back in the ring, and tonight, has been hired by a vote of 4 to 3, as Ector County's New Athletic Director.

He most recently served as A-D of the Austin School Distrcict, from 1996 to 2004, he has also coached at the University of Kentucky and Colorado State University.

Fuller is not in town, but we'll speak to him as soon as he is.
