Dodge is an assistant football coach at Flower Mound Marcus High School in the Lewisville school district. He lives in far north Fort Worth, according to Tarrant County district clerk records.
A spokeswoman for the Lewisville school district said Dodge is still employed at the school.
Before he was hired there last year, he was an assistant coach at Texas A&M and the University of Texas at Austin.
He’s best known for starring under his father, coach Todd Dodge, at Carroll, where he graduated in 2008.
In two years as a starter for the Dragons, Riley Dodge threw for more than 8,000 yards and 101 touchdowns. Todd Dodge, who guided Carroll to four state championships in seven years, was hired by the University of North Texas after his son’s junior year, so Riley Dodge switched his commitment from Texas to UNT.
As a Dragon, Dodge won Texas 5A Offensive Player of the Year twice, and he was named an all-American.
