According to Cy-Fair ISD, Rusty Rohan has been named Cypress Springs' campus athletic coordinator and head football coach. He previously was the defensive coordinator on recently-retired Rick Cobia's staff.

He’s taught me a lot and he’s prepared me for this. I’m fired up to be able to lead the Cy Springs' program and be around the kids here for years to come.”

The Texas A&M grad has coached for 16 years, and has served in multiple roles since coming to Cy Springs in 2012. Within the athletic department, he has also been the academic adviser for the football team, track meet coordinator, college recruiting coordinator, core course GPA liaison, and physical education/health department chair.

Jose Abreu is no longer an Astro. Composite Getty Image.

The Houston Astros released José Abreu on Friday, cutting ties with the former AL MVP less than halfway through a three-year, $58.5 million contract.

The 37-year-old Abreu was batting .124 (14 for 113) with two homers and seven RBIs this season, during which he spent time in the minors trying to fix his swing. The Astros still owe him $30.8 million from the deal he signed before last season.

A three-time All-Star during his nine years with the Chicago White Sox, Abreu was named MVP during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2014 after defecting from his native Cuba the previous year.

His production dropped off significantly with the Astros. He batted .237 last year, the lowest average of his career, with 18 homers and 90 RBIs.

Abreu is a career .283 hitter with 263 homers and 960 RBIs in 11 seasons.

Houston owes him $30,822,504, including $11,322,504 remaining from this year’s salary and $19.5 million for 2025. Any team can sign him for a prorated share of the $740,000 major league minimum, with the Astros responsible for the rest.
