Tex is stepping down as Editor-in-Chief of Her Loyal Sons. It took me ten minutes to form that sentence, such is the suddenness and relative importance of the fact.
In the five years I have been writing for this site, Tex has been a constant in my experience. He hired me over a series of emails. He guided me through posting, through administering, and through writing.
None of you see the attention he gives his staff. The texts. The emails. The telephone calls. His computer expertise glosses over the extent of the difficulties he overcomes for us. He is encyclopedic in his knowledge of ND football and the timing of his posts is perfect.
Tex is a husband and a father. The toll this job takes is terrific, given the seriousness and silliness of it. Managing writers who are also parents and/or spouses is challenging on its easiest day. Tex has earned a breather.
Tex will stay on the staff, but he’s stepping down and away. I can’t have him go too far. I need him too much.
Jude and Moons are going to take over as Assistant Editors in Chief. I am exceedingly grateful to them for that.
Tex is going to post about his decision later. Please afford him every consideration and know that what he has decided is what he feels to be right for him and his family. He is the heart and soul of Her Loyal Sons. I cannot hope to fill his shoes.
