According to Crosby ISD Superintendent Scott Davis, “We have received official notice that our Athletic Director, Jeff Riordan, will be leaving Crosby ISD to begin his tenure as the Athletic Director for another district. The contributions he has made to the Crosby ISD Athletic Department are significant and have positively impacted the lives of many students, families, and our community. I have heard so many ‘Code Red’ stories in my short time here. Coach Riordan, by all accounts, brought a renewed sense of community to Crosby and Barrett Station. Though his service in Crosby ISD is coming to an end, we know that he will continue making a positive impact in the lives of the students of Chappell Hill ISD. We wish Coach Riordan and his family all the best.

We will soon begin the process of searching for a replacement. In the meantime, we know that our student athletes are in good hands and will be well cared for by a great coaching staff until a decision has been reached regarding our next Athletic Director. There will be an opportunity to submit feedback to the District regarding the characteristics of the next Athletic Director in the near future. We look forward to the next chapter for Crosby ISD Athletics.
