Will Giddings' Fitzhenry stay or go?
Giddings coach Derek Fitzhenry is weighing whether to leave for Pasadena Dobie or stay at a program he's helped build into one of the state's best in Class 3A.
Dobie officials have offered Fithenry th job and hoped for an answer by Friday but have given Fitzhenry through the weekend to consider the options, according to Giddings Times and News sports editor Sloan Preuss.
The Giddings paper is closely monitoring the situation but doesn't have a website to update.
Fitzhenry has been a candidate in several openings around the state since the end of last season.
Dobie is a Class 5A school but definitely falls into a "rebuilding" post even if the school district bumps Fitzhenry's pay well about $100,000. Dobie hasn't been to the state playoffs in five years. The last winning district record came in '05.
While at Class 3A Giddings, Fitzhenry has had a strong playoff contender. His son Brock Fitzhenry was one of the state's top players in '07. Brock plays receiver at Texas.
Derek Fitzhenry has another talented son with RB/WR Spencer
Fitzhenry, who is a top Class of 2012 college prospects.
