Mabank's Jeff Johnson will replace retiring Poteet baseball coach Bobby Doe
Mesquite Poteet baseball coach Bobby Doe will retire at the end of the 2012-13 school year, and Mabank's Jeff Johnson has been hired as his replacement, Mesquite ISD athletic director Steve Bragg announced Tuesday.
Doe has been a head coach for 17 years at Poteet and Big Spring high schools. He led both schools to a pair of state tournament appearances. Poteet won 59 consecutive district games during a stretch that spanned from 2007-11. Doe had a 362-127 career record.
Johnson was formerly an assistant baseball coach at Poteet from 2006 to 2010, when he left to become the head coach at Mabank. Johnson led Mabank to the regional quarterfinals in 2012, the program's first postseason appearance.
