Gantt named new VISD Athletic Director

VICTORIA, Texas — On Tuesday evening, the VISD Board of Trustees unanimously voted to name Spencer Gantt the district’s next Athletic Director.

Gantt, who worked as assistant AD under Bobby Jack Wright in 2019-20, was previously the offensive coordinator for West football, as well as head powerlifting coach.

“Having been an athletic director in the past I knew that was something I wanted to get to — get back to, later in my career,” said Gantt.

He had previously served as Athletic Director at San Benito.

While Gantt says the district has multiple plans in place as they prepare to tackle a potential fall season, he knows it won’t be easy in the age of COVID-19.

“It’s gonna be tough,” said Gantt. “And the thing about it is, you have to plan for everything. Nobody knows what’s going to happen.”

Gantt has been with VISD for six years.
