Rockwall offensive coordinator Andrew Colvin has been named the new head coach at Royse City.
Colvin replaces David Petroff, who was promoted to Royse City ISD assistant athletic director in January.
“I’ve watched Royse City the past few years and felt like it’s a potential sleeping giant," he said. "A lot of tough kids who are bought in. I always thought this could be a great job."
Colvin has spent the past four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Rockwall. Prior to that, Colvin served as the offensive coordinator at Dallas Molina, Kemp and Tyler Legacy. At Molina, Colvin was part of a staff that helped turn the Jaguars around from 20 straight losses in 2014-2015 to an 8-3 record and a playoff appearance and an 8-3 record in 2017.
He also spent time as a coach on the defensive side of the ball early in his coaching career when he was an assistant coach at West Mesquite. Colvin is a native of Mesquite and a graduate of Mesquite High.
“What impressed me the most in going through the process was the resources that Royse City ISD has for kids and coaches," he said. "The district and administration wants to be great and be successful not just in football, but all sports and in the classroom. I’m really fortunate that my first head coaching job is a good place for me as a coach, but also for my three daughters as well. I can’t wait to get started."
