Melton Schultz named Sam Houston HS football coach

SAN ANTONIO, April 1, 2016 – Melton Schultz has been named the head football coach at Sam Houston High School. He has served as an assistant coach at the school since 2005.

Schultz inherits a Hurricane team that has made the state playoffs six out of the last seven years, including last year’s undefeated 10-0 run during the regular season. 

Schultz replaces Patrick Brown, who coached at the school for one season last year. Prior to Brown, Gary Green, an All-American at Baylor and an NFL great for the Kansas City Chiefs, coached Sam Houston between 2008 and 2014.

“I am very excited,” Coach Schultz said. “Sam Houston has a great football tradition. I have been here for 10 years and I want to continue those high expectations. Our goal is to advance deep into the playoffs. We have great students, faculty and administration. In my opinion, this is the best high school in San Antonio.”

This is Schultz’s first head football coaching job. Prior to being named the head football coach, he was the team’s defensive coordinator and he also served as the baseball coach for the school. Schultz is an SAISD alum and a 1985 graduate of Burbank High School.

“Coach Schultz knows Sam Houston HS inside and out,” SAISD Athletic Director Todd Howey said. “He knows what needs to be done to get the Hurricanes to the next level. He has a great heart for kids and he wants to win in all sports.”
