Mr. Chad Butler

Athletic Director
Wharton ISD

I grew up in Brownwood, Texas and learned from an early age what “Friday Night Lights” are all about. I graduated from Texas A&M University and completed my teaching certification at Sam Houston State. I have been teaching/coaching for 20 years with the last 9 years being in Wharton ISD. This marks my 5th year as Athletic Director/Head Football coach of the Tigers. Over the years, I have been fortunate to work in some very successful programs and learn from many successful coaches. My wife, Kristina, has been by my side the whole way and she is the Culinary Arts teacher at Wharton High School. We have 3 children, Lincoln, Aidrey, and Jolie. Lincoln and Aidrey attend Wharton Elementary. I became a coach because I love the game of football and I love helping kids achieve things they didn’t think possible. Winning is great, Winning is a goal, but impacting lives is the purpose. The goal of our Athletic Department is to provide opportunities for every participant to reach their full potential.


Go Tigers!
