Archer City ISD Athletic Director Shad Hanna announced the addition of Zac Dunnam to the coaching staff for the 2020-21 campaign.

“I am so excited to have coach Dunnam as part of our staff,” Hanna said. “He is the complete package that we needed in this position. He has the opportunity to learn from some really good coaches in great programs. He brings a lot of experience in football, basketball and baseball. He will help all three programs continue to improve. I’m very excited to have Zac on our staff.”

The Texas Tech graduate is slated to coach wide receivers and outside linebackers in football as well as assist with basketball and baseball.

Dunnam joins the staff with five-years’ experience as an educator and coach while educating student-athletes in football, basketball and baseball.

He began his coaching career at Nocona ISD in 2015 where he served as the receivers, quarterbacks and defensive backs coach as well as advanced to the regional semi-finals in basketball in 2017. Under his guidance, the Indians set the school passing yardage record in 2017.

Following three seasons in Nocona, Dunnam moved to Bowie ISD. In his lone season with the Jackrabbits, he coached outside linebackers in football and served as the pitching coach of the Bi-District champion baseball team.

Most recently, Dunnam coached outside receivers and was the head coach of the freshman basketball team at Van ISD.

Dunnam and his wife Kady recently moved to the Archer City community.
