SAN ANTONIO – Scott Lehnhoff has been appointed as the athletic director of the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District and will no longer be the Knights head football coach, according to the district.

The district’s director of public relations, Ed Suarez, confirmed the news to KSAT Sports on Wednesday. A press release was also posted on the district’s website.

Lehnhoff has been head coach of the Steele Knights since 2013, and been on the coaching staff since the school opened in 2005. 

He has led the Knights to four district titles, three regional championships and a 6A Division II state runner up finish this past season.

Lehnhoff is the son of former district athletic director and San Antonio head coaching legend Robert Lehnhoff.

He helped build the Knights football program into one of the best in the state of Texas and went 53-8 over his four seasons as head coach. 

The release on the district’s website has a statement from Lehnhoff that reads in part:

“I am excited to serve as Director of Athletics, Health & Physical Education at SCUC,” Scott Lehnhoff said. “Leaving my position at Steele has been a tough decision, but the chance to serve all of the coaches and student-athletes in SCUCISD is one that could not be passed up.”

Lehnhoff told KSAT Sports defensive coordinator David Saenz has been named Steele interim head coach.
