Rodney Chant will leave his position at Fort Bend ISD to take a similar job in San Angelo.
According to the San Angelo Standard-Times, Chant was named the new Executive Director of Athletics for San Angelo ISD on Friday after being the FBISD athletic director for the last four years.
He is also currently the president of the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association.
Chant will begin his new job in San Angelo ISD in July.
Under Chant, FBISD saw Marshall High School make the 5A Division II football championship game the last two years, as well as winning back-to-back state titles in 5A boys’ track and field in 2018 and 2019.
Ridge Point baseball and volleyball also came close to winning state titles in the last two years.
He also oversaw renovations to Mercer and Hall Stadiums, including new scoreboards and minor fixes to damages after Hurricane Harvey.
Instead of overseeing 11 high schools and 14 middle schools in FBISD, Chant will now be responsible for two SAISD high schools – Lake View and Central – along with three middle schools.
Chant came to Fort Bend in 2016 after serving as the assistant athletic director of Pasadena ISD since 2008. He started his coaching career at Terrell ISD as an assistant junior high football coach in 1995.
He also has ties to the San Angelo area, graduating at nearby Eden High School.
Calls to the FBISD athletic department were unanswered. FBISD has posted on its job website positions for both the athletic director and an assistant athletic director position.
