Philip C. Danaher Coaching History: 1974-2006

          I am presently the athletic director and head football coach at Calallen Independent School
District, a 4A school. I am currently in my thirty-three year of coaching, having served thirty-three
years as athletic director and head football coach.

        I have just finished my twenty-fourth years at Calallen, having made the play-offs for the past
twenty-third consecutive seasons, a state record of 16 consecutive seasons of winning 10 games or
better, 55 straight district wins, and eight appearances in the State Semi-finals in the last eleven
years, posting a 286-47-2 record in my tenure here. Until 1985, Calallen had not made the playoffs
for Thirty years. We reached the state finals in 2005, state semifinals in 1993,1994,
1995, 1996,1997, 2000 and 2003; quarterfinals in 1985, 1986, 1990, 1991, regional in 1987,1998,
1992, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2007; area in 1998, 1999, and Bi-district in 1989.

        Before coming to Calallen I held the position of athletic director and head football coach at
Hamshire-Fannett. Prior to my arrival at Hamshire-Fannett, the athletic program had fallen to an
all-time low. There was not a winning team in the entire program and participation was very
limited. Within the six years I was there, we won three football championships and were runners-
up two other times. Twice we were regional finalists. My record there was 43-22. Our athletic
participation increased in all sports and we experienced success in all phases of the athletic

        My first athletic director/head coaching experience came in Dilley, Texas. During my first
year there, 1974, Dilley won its first district championship in more than a decade. We went on to
become regional co-champs that year. Before leaving Dilley, we won another district title along
with four consecutive track championships. In my four years at Dilley, my record was 25-15-2.

        As far as my overall record, I am 336-84-04. Listed below is a year-by-year breakdown of my
football win/loss record.
