Cedar Hill High School head coach Joey McGuire has been hired to Baylor’s new football staff, Matt Rhule announced Wednesday. His title and responsibilities will be specified at a later date.
McGuire is the sixth hire finalized on Rhule’s new staff, joining Francis Brown, Evan Cooper, Sean Padden, Mike Siravo and David Wetzel.
McGuire won three state championships in 14 seasons as head coach at CHHS in Cedar Hill, Texas, including back-to-back titles in 2013 and 2014. He took Cedar Hill to 12 straight playoff appearances, a program that hadn’t won a playoff game prior to his tenure.
Cedar Hill finished 11-3 in 2016, losing to DeSoto in the Class 6A DII state quarterfinals.
In 14 seasons at the helm of Cedar Hill, McGuire’s teams amassed a 141-42 record, won three state championships (2006, 2013, 2014) and made four title appearances (runner-up in 2012), won nine bi-district championships and seven district championships.
McGuire was named the 2013 Texas coach of the year by MaxPreps, Dallas Morning News SportsDayHS and Chevy Silverado after leading Cedar Hill to the Class 5A state title. He earned Class 5A coach of the year honors in 2013 by the TSWA, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, NFF Dallas Club and the Padilla Poll, as well as in 2014 by Padilla Poll.
A two-time district coach of the year honoree (2005 and 2006), he has coached in all but two Under Armour All-American games and was a head coach of the 2013 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. He served as head coach for the north in the 2014 THSCA All-Star Football game.
McGuire was promoted to head coach at Cedar Hill prior to the 2003 season and took over a program that had gone eight years without a winning season. From 1997 to 2002 he served as an assistant at CHHS.
Prior to CHHS, McGuire began his coaching career at his alma mater, Crowley (Texas) High School, where he spent two seasons (1995 and 1996) as an assistant. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in 1995 from the University of Texas at Arlington.
McGuire and his wife Debbie have two children, daughter Raegan and son Garret. Garret was a quarterback at Cedar Hill from 2013 to 2016.
