Coach Alexander, a Waxahachie native, has been with Waxahachie ISD for more than 20 years, and in that time, he has held several coaching positions, including varsity positions on the coaching staffs of Jon Kitna, David Ream, and Thomas Brooks. He has also taught at the junior high and elementary levels.
“Coach Alexander has experience coaching at every level in Waxahachie ISD and has proven himself to be an effective coach who helps students succeed – not only in athletics, but in life,” said Dr. Jeremy Glenn, Waxahachie ISD Superintendent. “We are fortunate to hire such a positive ambassador for Waxahachie High School and its student-athletes.”
Todd Alexander is the first graduate of Waxahachie High School and Waxahachie native to be named head coach of the Indians varsity football team. Coach Alexander is a former Indians student athlete, and an alum of Tarleton State University. Coach Alexander took a leave from varsity football for the past two years to focus on his family. He currently teaches physical education and serves as the head varsity girls’ cross country coach for Waxahachie High School. He led the Lady Indians to their first-ever district championship this year.
The search committee for the new head coach was made up of campus-level and district administrators and coaching staff. The process was robust, with many candidates coming in for multiple interviews to enable the committee to make the best decision possible.
“Todd Alexander is a man of the highest character,” said Greg Reed, Waxahachie ISD Athletic Director. “We have made huge strides in our football program over the last several years with an emphasis on academics and character, and we know that Coach Alexander is the right person to continue that tradition as we move into 6A.”
Coach Alexander has three children: Caroline, a junior at Dallas Baptist University and a WHS graduate, Ellie, a WHS junior, and Ross, a fifth-grader at Felty Elementary School.
“My roots run deep in Waxahachie, and I am so proud to continue to serve the district as head football coach,” said Alexander. “I look forward to continuing the great tradition of Waxahachie football as the district moves into 6A.”
