MacArthur head football coach Ronny Mullins is retiring after over 30 years of coaching and teaching experience.  Mullins spent 16 seasons as a head coach with stops at Garland Naaman Forest, Prosper and MacArthur.

Mullins announced his retirement on January 10.

In a statement from Irving ISD, Mullins said he’s “blessed to finish my career in a quality district" and that he’s thankful for his time there.

“Although the district laments the loss of this respected coach, we are happy for his retirement and wish him the best,” Irving ISD Athletic Director Clint Roddy said in a statement. “He has done a great job, and he will be missed.”
