"Matthews, BCISD part ways by mutual agreement" by: Mike Reddell & Jessica Shepard

Patrick Matthews said his final good-byes to Bay City Blackcat coaches and players Thursday, Feb. 27.

“Today is my last day that’s what’s happening,” Matthews said Thursday afternoon – after talking to coaches and before he addressed his former players.

Matthews said by mutual agreement with the district, he’s leaving his position as Blackcat Head Football Coach and Athletic Director – and the school board will begin looking for his successor.

“I decided to part ways and look to get back to Houston and they will begin looking for someone else,” Matthews said.

“This benefits everyone,” he added.

Matthews was hired by BCISD in April 2018 and posted a 4-7 record in 2018 - defeating El Campo and taking the Blackcats into the first-round playoffs that year - followed by last year’s 0-9 record.

Matthews came to BCISD after serving as offensive coordinator for 6A Seven Lakes High School in Katy.

"Board tells Scott to review AD contract" by: Jessica Shepard

   After a half hour in closed session, Bay City ISD Trustees unanimously approved authorizing Superintendent Dr. Marshall Scott III to review Athletic Director Matrick Matthews’ contract during a special meeting, Feb. 25.
   Board members present included Bob Klepac, Jerry Manning, Eddie Nelson, Trent Tinnin, James Scardami and John DeWitt. 
   Trustee Frankie Cole was absent from the meeting. 
   “The board is taking no official action on the athletic director’s contract,” said Morgan Beam, district legal counsel.
   “This just gives Dr. Scott a chance to review the contract including benefits, salary or other terms as well as the term of the contract. Any action taken would have to happen in a public meeting.”
