Rumors surface that Weslaco's head coach, Tony Villarreal must win Friday game at Los Fresnos or look elsewhere for a job. Superintendent of the Weslaco ISD disagrees. Richard Rivera tells NewsCenter 23 QUOTE "these are bad rumors. Coach Villarreal has a contract through June 2011. Rivera continues...I told Coach Villarreal last week that I would extend his contract another year through 2012. Win or lose against Los Fresnos or any other district game this year, Coach Villarreal will be the Weslaco High School Panthers Coach. -- END QUOTE. While Villarreal's contract may be extended, there's a chance he may be reassigned to another position within the district. Expect Coach V to fight for his athletic coordinator position, and for his team to give it their all this Friday against Los Fresnos. We will continue to update you on this story as it develops.
