TYLER — KFXK's Danny Elzner has learned that Ricklan Homes will be named the new head football coach at John Tyler later today.
TISD will make it official at a school board meeting at 5:30.
Holmes played for John Tyler in the '90s. He has served as a JT assistant coach since 2007.
Holmes played for Allen Wilson at John Tyler, Les Miles at Oklahoma State and Bill Belichick at the New England Patriots.
Holmes has been running the Lions' football program since Dereck Rush resigned nearly three weeks ago to take a job in the Houston area.
"I love it." Holmes told KETK. "It's lifetime dream come true."
