Hinsley won’t return at Socorro, Bulldogs in search of new football coach

UPDATE: After this story was published, Anthony Hinsley reached out to KTSM to say that he had been reassigned by Socorro ISD to Montwood Middle School and that he did not resign. “I did not walk away from my kids, I was reassigned,” Hinsley said. “I wanted to stay and fight for my kids, but I was told that we hadn’t made enough progress in the three years that I had been there.” KTSM initially reached out to Socorro ISD officials on Tuesday to ask directly if Hinsley had resigned from his post at Socorro. That claim was not refuted by the district; SISD confirmed Hinsley was no longer the coach at Socorro. Socorro won its first game since 2015 under Hinsley in 2021. 

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The Socorro High School football team is officially in search of a new head coach. 

Anthony Hinsley, who took over the Bulldogs program in 2019, resigned on Tuesday after three seasons, Socorro Independent School District officials told KTSM. The story was first reported by Dave Campbell’s Texas High School Football. 

Hinsley led Socorro to its first win in six years, a victory over El Paso High in September that snapped a losing streak that dated back to 2015. 

The job opening has been posted on the school district’s website and will remain open until the end of November. Interviews will take place in early December and SISD hopes to have a new coach hired before Winter Break. 

Socorro went 1-9 in Hinsley’s final season at the helm in 2021.
