CYPRESS TEXAS — The reigning District 14-6A champion has a new head football coach and athletics coordinator, who will host his first Mustang parent meeting soon.

Coach Sean “Mac” McAuliffe is scheduled to meet with Cy Ranch’s football community Monday, May 6, 2019, at the Cy Ranch High School auditorium at 6:30 p.m.


McAuliffe comes to the Mustangs after five years at one of the state’s most prolific football programs, Converse Judson. His 20 years of coaching include four years at Jersey Village High School, as an assistant football coach and special teams coordinator from 2004-2008.

According to a Cypress-Fairbanks ISD press release, as a head football coach, McAuliffe has a 54-13 career record at Converse Judson, five Class 6A Division I postseason appearances, two state semifinal berths, one state quarterfinal appearance and one outright district championship. He was named the 2014 San Antonio Express-News Coach of the Year.

Ironically, one of those 13 losses came at the hands to the #MWT Mustangs in 2014, according to CFISD-sports focused website Varsity Wires.

McAuliffe takes the reins after Gene Johnson, who took over the boys’ athletic coordinator and head football coaching positions in Waller ISD in March.

It’s normal when a new head football coach takes over that the coaching roster changes with him. Riding on Johnson’s coattails to Waller are now-former Cy Ranch coaches Deveon McKinney and Marcus Mendoza.
