Alvin head football coach Tim Teykl submitted his resignation on Oct. 1 following allegations from two players that he used racially offensive words prior to the Yellowjackets’ season opener in Alvin against Houston Stratford on Sept. 25.

Teykl was initially placed on administrative leave by the district, before resigning during AISD’s investigation of the incident.

In a press release from Alvin ISD on Oct. 1, it stated that “Coach Chad Strban will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.”

Alvin plays at Kempner on Friday in Sugar Land.

The release added that “Alvin ISD’s focus will remain on providing each student with an academic and athletic program they deserve and one that lives up to the ideas of excellence for each student.

During this season of change, we are confident that Alvin High School’s outstanding faculty and staff will remain caring and supportive as we move forward. We will continue to work with our families and community to ensure we collectively support, embrace and celebrate the diversity of our district.”

AISD superintendant Dr. Carol Nelson also issued a statement: “Alvin ISD does not tolerate the use of divisive language for any staff member, or from any member of our school community.”
