After a 17-year career which saw the New Braunfels Unicorns become recognized as a state power in football, Jim Streety will accept the position of athletic director and head football coach at San Antonio Madison High School tonight.
“His resignation is not official yet, but he verbally told me on Monday of his intentions to resign,” said New Braunfels ISD Superintendent Charles Bradberry.
Streety declined to comment on either his resignation or his new position until after today’s 7 p.m. meeting of the North East School District’s board of trustees. His hiring is expected to be approved at that time.
After serving as an assistant coach for the Unicorns for seven years, Streety was named athletic director and head coach on March 12,1974.
Under Streety, New Braunfels advanced to the state playoffs eight times and compiled a 149-44-2 record. The Unicorns reached the

Class 4A state semifinals in 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1986. New Braunfels was the winningest 4A team in the state during the 1980s, as the Unicorns won 99 games. In 1988, Streety and his staff were selected to coach the South team in the Texas high school all-star game.
Streety, a former president of die Texas High School Coaches Association, guided the Unicorns to the 5A playoffs last fall — their first season in the state’s largest classification since 1975
Despite having the smallest enrollment of any 5A school in Region IV, New Braunfels was the undefeated champion is District

Bradberry said the search for a new athletic director would begin as soon as Strecty’s resignation becomes official.
“It’s going to be tough to replace a legend, but we’re going to try to find someone who can be another legend,” he said. “In my opinion, Jim Streety’s the best there is.”
Streety has turned down various job offers the last three years, Bradberry said, but Madison presented Streety with too good of an opportunity to pass up.
“It’s (North East ISD’s) biggest high school and they have a lot of individual talent, so there is a lot of potential there,” Bradberry said, adding Streety was happy to still be able to live in New Braunfels despite the change of jobs.
The position at Madison became vacant in February when Mark Saunders resigned after a three-year stint at the school. The Mavericks finished third in District
26-5 A in 1990, reaching the playoffs with a 5-7-1 record.

“I don’t think it was anything they did. We came out and started the
game pretty strong, but we let them get too many offensive boards in the second quarter. Of course, I didn’t get a chance to play much in the second quarter.”
The game was barely 17 minutes old when Robinson, held to a career-low six points on Feb. 22 in the Spurs’ 107-101 loss at the Sports Arena, got his third foul and went to the bench for the rest of the half. The score was lied at 51-51 at halftime.
Ken Norman relumed to the lineup after a five-game absence due to a sprained ankle and scored 12 points as six Clippers scored in double figures. Danny Manning and Ron Harper each had 17 points.
After Robinson fouled out, the Spurs cut the margin to 85-83 on a fast-break layup by David Wingate with 4:23 to play and tied it 72 seconds later on a pair of free throws by Sidney Green. They took a 91-90 lead, their first of the second half, with 1:38 left on consecutive
