Flower Mound Marcus offensive coordinator David Colllins has been named the next head football coach at Greenville High School, Greenville ISD announced on Friday.

Collins is best known for his six seasons leading Richardson Pearce (2016-2021) where he led the Mustangs to the playoffs four times, including two trips to the area playoffs in 2017 and 2018. Collins’ 2018 Pearce squad pulled off one of the biggest playoff upsets in recent memory as the Mustangs stunned state-ranked Cedar Hill on the road in the 6A bi-district playoffs.

Collins also spent two seasons as the head coach at Longview Pine Tree from 2014-2015.

“When Greenville initially reached out I was really impressed with the passion and vision of the administration and community and their vision aligned a lot with what I believe in and it put us in the position to really be excited about coming to Greenville,” Collins said.

Aside from spending 2023 on staff at Flower Mound Marcus, Collins also spent time as an assistant coach at Allen, Lake Travis, Garland, Mabank.

Collins will look to bring stability to a Greenville ISD athletic department that has seen a lot of turnover in the past six months, specifically in the football program, which spent 2023 with an interim head coach.

“We want to re-establish the tradition of winning football at Greenville," he said. "My entire job right now is the earn the trust of the kids and community and I hope to do that every day with passion and by serving others. These kids have been through a lot and I hope to set the tone on Day 1 and by proving to them that I can earn their trust."
