Former The Woodlands coach Mark Schmid is heading back to the sidelines this fall.

According to an email that was sent to VYPE, Oak Ridge coach Dereck Rush is leaving the program to take another job as an Athletic Director outside of Conroe ISD. Schmid will take over as the interim head coach and athletic director at Oak Ridge High School while the district works to permanently fill the position.

"Coach Rush has done a wonderful job in his years at Oak Ridge," the email stated. "We wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors."

Following the 2017 season, Schmid stepped down after spending 30 years at the school. At the time Schmid, who was 56, didn't refer to it as a retirement. Schmid then told the Houston Chronicle that he was "open to opportunities."

Let's boil down the Class 6A football reclassification as it relates to the Greater Houston area.

District 21-6A becomes the new power conference with North Shore (back-to-back Class 6A DI state champs), Atascocita (2019 Region III finalist) and West Brook (2018 Class 6A DII state runner up).

The big winners were Deer Park and Channelview, who move to District 22-6A. While it will be tough to schedule for District 13-6A with six teams, it means that only two teams don't make the postseason.

Another interesting note is now Houston represents half of Region II (4 of 8 districts) and all of Region III.

REGION II

District 13-6A -- Are Conroe schools plus Willis.

District 14-6A -- Are the Spring and Aldine schools again. No change there.

District 15-6A -- Are the Klein and Tomball schools. Tomball moves up to Class 6A.

District 16-6A -- An all-Cy Fair district. Cy Falls moves over to replace Tomball Memorial.
