Brazosport ISD announced the hiring of running backs coach and special teams coordinator Richard Sincere to the position of head coach on Friday afternoon.
He replaces Mark Kanipes, who announced his retirement earlier this offseason.
“I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and for Brazosport administration to have the faith in me to do a good job," he said. "God put me in this position. I knew that when I got here in 2020 this was where I was supposed to be. There are so many emotions and excitement for me personally; being the first black head coach in the history of Brazosport ISD is a big deal and very important to me."
Sincere, who has spent the last three years on staff at Brazosport, was the offensive coordinator for Brazoswood from 2017-18 and at Galveston Ball in 2019.
He started his coaching career as the running back coach at West Columbia in 2015 and spent one season as the running backs coach at Belton.
Sincere, a Galveston native, played collegiately at Sam Houston State where he was an FCS All-American and held several offensive school records.
There’s not much time left in the offseason, but Sincere, who has been running offseason since Kanipes left, says the Exporters will make the most of it.
“I think now that the transition is over, we can hit the ground running with what’s left in offseason and finishing the school year strong," Sincere said. "We’ll make some changes here and there, but we want to keep the train on the tracks and keep getting better."
