Texas high school football coach Shaun McDowell announced Monday that he is turning down an offer to join the Baylor coaching staff and will remain in his current position at Foster High in Richmond, Texas.
McDowell was previously reported to be joining the Bears’ player personnel department. But now 10 days later, he announced that he has changed his mind.
Here’s the statement McDowell released through the Foster Football Twitter account:

Baylor coach Matt Rhule has emphasized hiring coaches and staff members with connections to Texas high school football. Those connections helped the Bears land a top-30 recruiting class in 2018. Of their 22 signees in this year’s class, 17 were from Texas.
McDowell is 49-14 in five seasons at Foster, and he likely would have been a valuable asset for Baylor because of that experience. Instead, the Bears may have to look elsewhere in the state for a new staffer to fill the role.
