Chilton ISD named Huitt athletic director

Chilton ISD has named Interim Athletic Director Bennie Huitt as the permanent Athletic Director and Head Football Coach for the Chilton Pirates.

For the last three years, Bennie Huitt has been employed at Chilton ISD, serving as the Assistant Athletic Director, Assistant Head Football Coach, Defensive Coordinator, and Head Powerlifting Coach. Huitt was selected as the Interim Athletic Director after AD/Head football coach Christopher James resigned earlier in March.

Coach Bennie Huitt is a 1992 Graduate of Marlin High School. He was a college athlete at Ranger College and Angelo State University. He earned his Bachelor’s degree at Angelo State University, and later a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.

Coach Huitt brings over 20 years of coaching experience to the district. Before his employment, at Chilton ISD he served as the Athletic Director/Head Football Coach at Marlin ISD, Assistant Athletic Director/Assistant Head Football Coach, and Defensive Coordinator at Trinity ISD; and Assistant Athletic Director/Offensive Consultant at Navasota ISD. 

As Athletic Director/Head Football Coach at Marlin ISD, Huitt led the Bulldogs to a Bi-District Championship and Area Round Playoffs in 2015. He was named District 10-AA Coach of the Year, and Staff of the Year. His team was selected as Waco Tribune Most Successful Story, KWTX Team of the Week. He was selected to coach in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-Star Game. 

Huitt believes that his greatest coaching responsibility lies in creating a winning attitude on and off the playing fields. Huitt is excited about the opportunity that Chilton ISD has provided him and plans to work to elevate the overall athletic department at the district.
