Champions History

A History of Helping Coaches

After a historic and highly successful career that spanned 27 years as head football coach and Director of Athletics at Southlake Carroll High School in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Bob Ledbetter retired from coaching. But he wasn't done. Coach Ledbetter had an opportunity to give back to the sport that had given so much to him over his career, and beginning in 1996 that is exactly what he did.

Coach Ledbetter started Champions Search Firm in an effort to help "a lot of coaches" get football coaching jobs in Texas. He has since teamed up with other notable Texas football names -- John Paul Young, Jim Hess, and Gary Griffin -- and continues to accomplish just what he set out to do.

Since its inception, Champions Search Firm has worked on both sides of the table -- on behalf of school districts looking to fill coaching vacancies as well as with prospective coaches trying to advance their coaching careers or land their first jobs in Texas. To date, Champions has played a significant role in placing almost 30 AD/head coaching positions in the Lone Star State, and shows no signs of letting up.
