Lufkin High School has hired John Cobb as their new head baseball coach.
Cobb has been with the Panthers for nine years as the assistant coach for the baseball team. This will be Cobb's second head coaching job, after he served as the head coach at Bullard High School for one season.
Cobb will be replacing Jason Stanley who took a coaching job at Industrial ISD. Stanley left the Panthers with a 42-8 record over the past two seasons, taking Lufkin to the regional quarterfinals last season.
