Danny Dudgeon Athletic Director Head Football Coach

Danny Dudgeon has been named Godley ISD boys athletic director and Wildcat Football head coach, according to an announcement from the school district on May 24, 2024.

Dudgeon is currently the head football coach and athletic director in Clyde, where the Bulldogs went 11-2 in 2023 finishing as district champions with the second best record in school history while breaking seven school records.  The coach has been in Clyde for three years, with Dave Campbell’s Texas Football naming the team as 3A Team of the Year and as one of the most improved across all classifications.

“Coach Dudgeon is an outstanding leader and is a great fit for Godley,” commented Superintendent Dr. Rich Dear.  “I have high confidence in him due to his commitment to student engagement for both academic and athletic success.  Godley athletics will be in good hands with Coach Dudgeon and the strong program that he will build not only for football but also all our boys sports.”

Dudgeon’s coaching experience includes serving as offensive coordinator at Abilene Cooper High School with previous stops as an offensive line coach in Breckenridge and Bastrop Cedar Creek.  He also taught math at all three high schools.

The new athletic director says that his objective is “to develop a championship-minded program that graduates student athletes, provides character growth for athletes, and creates a competitive culture for students both on and off the field.”  Dudgeon hopes to create and foster an environment where student athletes achieve their maximum potential in the classroom, in their sport, and in their daily lives through dedication, hard work, respect and commitment.

Dudgeon will be coaching the Big Country FCA All-Star Game on Jun. 15 in Abilene.

An Abilene native, Dudgeon earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Howard Payne University in Brownwood.  He was a four-year offensive lineman for the Yellow Jacket football program.

Dudgeon is married to Victoria, who currently serves as a CHS counselor.  The couple has two young children - a daughter and a son.
