MISSION - There will be a very different look on the home sidelines of Tom Landry Stadium next season.
Mission Veterans Memorial's Carlos Longoria will be reassigned and was informed late Wednesday evening. The decision was reached after a Mission CISD Board of Trustees meeting.
Mission CISD superintendent Oscar Rodriguez, who made the decision to reassign Lee and Longoria, said the district "needed to go in a different direction" with its football teams.
Longoria, who came to Mission Veterans from Raymondville before the 2004 season, went 24-26 and reached the playoffs only in his first season. Ironically, it was a Patriots loss in the last game of the season to Weslaco East which put the Eagles into the postseason.
