Estacado on Monday announced the hirings of two new head coaches for girls athletics.

Jeffery Chatman was named the new girls athletics coordinator and head basketball coach, while former Texas A&M standout Kristen Grimes is the new girls volleyball coach.

Chatman takes over for long time Estacado coach Diane Morgan, who left to take an administrative job in Plainview. The Lady Matadors finished third in District 2-3A this past season and led the program to the Class 3A state tournament in 2009.

But he’s not new to Lubbock. His father worked at Dunbar and his grandfather is former physician Dr. Joseph A. Chatman, who founded Chatman Hospital in 1945.

“He has great experience working with boys and girls athletics,” Estacado principal Sam Ayers said. “It’s exciting that he’s taken his girls teams to the playoffs and we look forward to a smooth transition here at Estacado.”

Chatman is a native of Crane and graduate of Angelo State and has coached at Del Rio the past four seasons. He was the girls basketball coach at Del Rio the past two years, leading the program to a Class 5A regional quarterfinal finish in 2011 with a 30-8 record, and a regional semifinal appearance this past season with a 28-10 mark.

“(Del Rio) doesn’t have quite the athletes that they have at Estacado, and that’s what was intriguing about it to me,” Chatman said. “We didn’t have those kind of athletes and we were able to get to the regional tournament. I think that matching what I like to do with the athletes at Estacado it will be a very good situation.”

At Del Rio, he has also served as an assistant football, basketball and track coach.

Grimes, a native of Colorado, spent her freshman season at the University of Northern Colorado before transferring to Texas A&M, where she became a key component for the Aggies.

A three-year starter, she was named the team Most Valuable Player in 2007 and Top Offensive Player in 2009. She was hired two weeks ago, Ayers said, in time to be in place when preseason practices started last Monday.

“It’s always exciting when you can get a coach who has been a high-quality athlete,” Ayers said. “She brings that experience from the Big 12 competition as well as club volleyball.”

She has coached junior volleyball clubs in Houston and Amarillo and also was a coach for the Texas A&M volleyball camps.

Grimes replaces Mike Moffitt.
