Aubrey AD: Football coach G.A. Moore, all-time leader in Texas HS football wins, retires
G.A. Moore, Aubrey's head football coach and the winningest high school football coach in Texas history, has resigned, according to report on Rivals.com's The Old Coach.
Aubrey ISD superintendent James Monaco confirmed the resignation in the report.
Moore, with 429 career victories and eight state titles, leaves Aubrey after three seasons.
Moore was head coach at Bryson in 1962 before heading back home to coach at Pilot Point from 1963-70. He then moved on to Celina where he directed that program from 1972-76. In 1974, he won his first state title when Celina battled Big Sandy to a 0-0 tie. Lovie Smith, Chicago Bears head coach, was a starting linebacker on that Big Sandy team.
Moore returned to Pilot Point to coach there from 1977-85, winning state championships in 1980 and 1981. In 1980, Pilot Point and Tidehaven battled to a 0-0 tie in the Class 2A title game and then in 1981 Moore got his first outright state championship with a 32-0 victory over Garrison.
Moore left Pilot Point after the 1985 season to take over the program at Sherman and was 7-3 in both seasons (1986, 1987) with the Bearcats.
In 1988, he went back to Celina for his second stint with the Bobcats. In 1995, Celina defeated Alto 32-28 for the Class 2A state crown. Three years later the Bobcats started a run of 57 consecutive victories that included state championships in 1998 (Celina 21, Elysian Fields 0), 1999 (Celina 38, Elysian Fields 7) and 2000 (Celina 21, Mart 17).
In 2001, Moore returned to Pilot Point. He retired in 2004, but in 2009 returned to the sidelines at Aubrey.
