Weber comes to Dawson from Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas, where he served as an assistant coach this past year, helping the Roadrunners to a 16-13 season overall and 9-7 record in conference. Weber worked under coach Byron Coleman, who earned his 300th win at Angelina this past February according to the DCC release.
Weber will succeed Rich Mullin, who was interim coach for the DCC women for the last six weeks of this past season. Romeo Lagmay Jr. had been the Bucs' coach for nine years before that. DCC finished 15-16 last season, including 13-9 in the Mon-Dak Conference.
Before coaching at Angelina, Weber was the head coach and athletics program manager at Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen, Washington, the DCC release stated.
