In a month, Southlake Carroll has hired new coaches for its football, volleyball and girls basketball programs.

At the end of March, the Carroll school district approved the hiring of former Dragons state-title-winning QB Riley Dodge, who replaced longtime coach Hal Wasson.

Earlier last month, Carroll hired former assistant Teresa Dunn as its next volleyball coach.

Dunn, who coached at Midlothian last season, replaced Ryan Mitchell, who owned a 168-23 record in four years at Carroll.

The Dragons went 38-8 and were eliminated in the third round last season. They went 43-7 in 2016 with a trip to the 6A Region I final. They also went to the regional tournament in 2015.

Mitchell will return to Lovejoy ISD as a leadership coordinator and assistant volleyball coach. He was once the head coach for Lovejoy, where he led the program to five straight UIL state titles from 2008-12.

Dunn went 30-14 in her only year with Midlothian, where the Panthers went to the 5A Region II quarterfinals. She was at Carroll for one season and was one of Mitchell's assistants.

Dunn played at Arlington and West Texas A&M, and held coaching stints with Amarillo Tascosa and Flower Mound Marcus. Her sister, Heather, is the head coach at Arlington Lamar.

Carroll grad Robyn Anders McCoart is the new girls basketball coach. She replaces Teri Morrison, who announced in February she'll retire at the end of the school year.

Morrison, also the girls athletic coordinator, had seven playoff appearances since 2009.

She coached for 35 years, 29 as a head coach. Morrison was 678-293 for her career, 206-97 at Carroll. Before Carroll, she was the head coach at Mesquite Poteet, Royce City and Waco Midway.

Anders McCoart, who was an assistant at Colleyville Heritage from 2004-07, graduated from Carroll in 1998. She was an all-district and all-state player before graduating from Ouachita Baptist.
