Head Coach Todd Neighbors enters his seventh season as head coach of the Roadrunners and 13th overall as a head coach at the collegiate level. Neighbors earned his bachelor's degree at Southwest Texas State in 1992 and his Master's degree in Education in 1995 from the University of the Incarnate Word.
In Neighbors’ five seasons as head coach of the program the Roadrunners have won more than 60 percent of their games. According to Neighbors, though, it is not about winning games it is about the development of his players as young men and student-athletes. “Here at Angelina College we focus daily on the development of our players. We emphasize to our players the importance of becoming a better student, person, and player every day. I am in the coaching profession to have a positive impact on my players’ lives and future. When a player becomes a member of our family, he becomes a member for life.”
Neighbors joined the Angelina College family in 2005. Prior to that, he served as head coach for Hill College from 2000-2004, and Ranger College from 1998-2000. During those combined six years, Neighbors was responsible for recruiting and coaching four All-Americans, seven All-Region selections, twelve All-Conference players and two Freshmen of the Year honorees. Several of Neighbors' former players are currently playing professionally overseas.
He is married to the former Susan Bollinger of Perry, Oklahoma. He has two daughters, Taylor, age 15 and Kennedy, age 11; and a step-son, Cody, age 18.
