Fort Worth— after twenty-five years as Head Football Coach and Athletic Director, Tim Buchanan has announced his retirement from Aledo ISD and will begin a new role with Texas sports contractor, Paragon Sports Constructors.
“Aledo ISD and the community have been great to my family and me. After nearly three decades in the coaching world it is time for me to move on and take on new challenges professionally,” said Tim Buchanan regarding his decision to retire. “I will miss the kids but plan to remain a part of the Aledo community.”
Buchanan arrived in Aledo in 1993 and served dual roles as head football coach and athletic director from day one. He racked up a record of 227-53-3 with five state championships before stepping out of the head coaching roll in 2014. MaxPreps calls him “one of the Lone Star State’s most successful and respected coaches.”
Under his tenure as Athletic Director, Aledo ISD became one of the most recognized athletic programs in the state of Texas; winning two more football championship in 2014 and 2016 along with state titles in baseball, men’s golf, and three championships in softball.
“Coach Buchanan has an excellent reputation and brings a fresh, unique perspective to our sales team having purchased numerous athletic construction projects at Aledo,” said Paragon Sports Constructors president, William Chaffe. “Tim is a proven winner and fits our culture well. We are looking forward to learning from his leadership and experience as an athletic director to continue growing and strengthening our services for Texas schools.”
“When I started looking for a career after education I wanted to find something that would keep me tied to athletics and working for Paragon does just that,” commented Tim Buchanan. “I will still be able to interact with coaches, share what I’ve learned as a coach and administrator, and help provide great surfaces for athletes to train and compete on.”
Buchanan will start working into his role at Paragon Sports Constructors immediately while remaining an advisory point of contact for Aledo ISD as they transition to a new athletic administration.
