MARBLE FALLS  (AP) — Todd Dodge is returning to Texas high school coaching five years after a dominant run of four state championships in five seasons.

Dodge was hired Monday night at Marble Falls, ending a college stint that started when North Texas hired Dodge after he went 79-1 in a five-season stretch at Southlake Carroll.

The rare move from high school to a Division I program didn’t work out for Dodge. He was 6-37 before getting fired in the middle of his fourth season at North Texas. He was the quarterbacks coach at Pittsburgh last year.

Dodge’s overall high school record is 124-46 at four schools.
