San Angelo ISD Executive Director of Athletics Rodney Chant Recognized as Athletic Administrator of the Year

San Angelo ISD proudly celebrates Executive Director of Athletics Rodney Chant for the distinguished honor of being named Region 2 Athletic Administrator of the Year by the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association (THSADA). The Athletic Administrator of the Year is in recognition of the dedicated service, leadership, and special contributions of local and regional interscholastic athletic administrators. 

“Rodney Chant has proven himself to be one of the very best Athletic Directors in the State of Texas,” said Executive Director of THSADA Rusty Dowling. “Having served the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association as a former President, he is well respected among his peers and has consistently elevated all athletic programs in every district that he has served in.”

In December 2022, SAISD announced Coach Chant is one of just four 2023 THSADA Hall of Honor inductees selected for the state-wide honor and the only in West Texas. Coach Chant was also formerly recognized as the 2020 Athletic Director of the Year by THSADA after joining San Angelo ISD, and the 2016 THSADA Region 5 Athletic Administrator of the Year while serving as Director of Athletics at Pasadena ISD. 

Throughout his career in public education and athletics, Coach Chant has developed student athletes, coaches, and athletic staff. He has coached from intermediate to the high school level including football, basketball, track, tennis, baseball and powerlifting. 

Coach Chant hales from West Texas, and is a graduate of Eden High School. He started his coaching career at Terrell ISD before transitioning to Pasadena ISD and Fort Bend ISD before joining San Angelo ISD in 2020. 

The District congratulates Coach Chant on this prestigious honor, and recognizes his outstanding exemplification of the attributes of the SAISD Educator Profile. Thank you Coach Chant for all you do to positively impact the lives of our students and Difference Maker staff.
