Matt Farmer - Head Coach

Coach Farmer is entering his 15th year in education and his sixth at New Caney High School. He is a proud 2007 graduate of Texas A&M University. Following graduation, he began his teaching and coaching career under the leadership of Glen West and Bruce King at Brenham High School and worked there, alongside some of the best coaches in the state, for seven years. During his time as the first assistant, the Cubs had an overall record of 139-61. They were Regional Semifinalist (2009-2010), Regional Quarterfinalist (2008-2009), Area Finalist (2011-2012), Bi-District Finalist (2010-2011 and 2013-2014), District Champions (2009-2010 and 2011-2012), and District Runner-Up (2008-2009, 2010-2011, and 2013-2014). 

Coach Farmer then moved north to Sanger High School, where he embarked on his first head coaching adventure and led the Indians to the playoffs in his first year. The 2020-2021 season at New Caney resulted in the fifth playoff appearance since the school began in 1938. "Our philosophy is that building high character and hard-working men will translate to winning each moment of every day. The process matters. The classroom matters. Our attitude towards others matters. Most importantly, our faith matters."

He has been married to his wife Robyn for thirteen years, and they have four beautiful children: Arabelle 12, Elijah 10, Evie June 8, and Everett 6. "There is no way I would be in this profession without the love and support of my wife. She is my backbone."

Sean Lexima

I am entering my 8th year in education and my 7th year with New Caney ISD. I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University and will be a part of the Special Education department here at NCHS. In addition, I will be the First Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach and will also be assisting with Track.

I have a tremendous passion for pouring into the youth and doing my part to help cultivate the minds of the young men and women of this community. I believe that teaching and coaching is a calling that God has placed on my life and I do not take it for granted. I have truly been blessed to have the opportunity to work with so many great people in the effort to grow them academically as well as athletically. I am looking forward to this school year and season!
