Carroll Names McDade New Boys' Basketball Coach

New Carroll Dragon head boys' basketball coach Eric McDade.

Carroll ISD has named Eric McDade as its new varsity boys’ basketball coach. McDade will take over the Dragon program in August.

“We are very excited about Eric McDade and what he will bring to Carroll ISD,” Carroll Athletic Director Kevin Ozee said. “Coach McDade has a tremendous and successful background in coaching basketball. He is a great classroom teacher and his ability to build positive relationships with his students is a top priority to him. Eric is also a Capturing Kids’ Hearts trainer and he will be a very positive role model for our student-athletes. ”

McDade, 38, takes over the Dragon program after spending the last three years at Duncanville High School. McDade led the tradition-rich Panthers to the playoffs all three seasons after replacing legendary coach Phil McNeely. McDade’s career record is 270-159 and his teams have reached the playoffs in 12 of his 13 years as a head coach.

“I am extremely thrilled to have this opportunity,” McDade said. “My family and I are looking forward to being part of this outstanding school district and community.  I look forward to getting to know the players and them getting to know me. It should be a lot of fun.”

Before his post at Duncanville, McDade led Mansfield Timberview to the Class 4A state tournament in the 2008-2009 season and started the program when the school opened in 2004. His first head coach position was in 1999 at Crowley. McDade, who has coached for 17 years, played collegiately at Concordia University in Austin and was an All-Conference and Academic All-American selection. The Denison native also served as an assistant at Round Rock McNeil, A&M Consolidated and Cleburne. McDade and his wife Janet have two sons, Bryson (9) and Braylen (7).

McDade replaces Jon Youngblood who resigned as coach in March after five years.
