Athletic Director

Michael Nichols Academy ISD Athletic Director 
Welcome to Academy Independent School District. I have been the athletic director here since March of 2010. My family consists of my wife, Emily, and three sons, Zachary, Jake, and Aaron. After graduating from Mt. Vernon High School in 1991, I attended and graduated from Texas A&M University - Commerce. I began my coaching career in 1997 at Commerce Middle School, Commerce, Texas. I have been blessed to have been a part of three quarterfinal football teams, two semi-final football teams, two state finalists football teams, and one state championship football team. However, I realize that what I do is about so much more than success on the field. I look forward to developing young men and women and building lifelong relationships. I hope that you find Academy to be the great place to raise your children that I have. God Bless.
