Lincoln grad named Houston Madison coach

Shawn Narcisse has been named head football coach at Houston Madison.

His second game at the helm will bring the 1989 Lincoln graduate back to Port Arthur, as Memorial is scheduled to host Narcisse’s Marlins on Sept. 7.

“Its Official. Madison High School New Head Football Coach. Very emotional day for me,” Narcisse tweeted. “My Mom [passed] on this date today. This is for you Moma.”

Narcisse thanked Madison principal Paolo Castagnoli for the opportunity.
