Cy-Fair ISD coach seen on camera getting attacked by middle school students

A Houston area high school coach is recovering after getting chased down and attacked by a group of students Thursday after school.


A student shared his disturbing cellphone video with FOX 26 taken as students chase down the coach. The brutal ambush happened Thursday afternoon outside Langham Creek High School. In the video, you can see a group of students running after the coach. Then, some students punch the coach and he falls to the ground.

A spokesperson from Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (CFISD) couldn’t tell us how the coach is doing.  However, people familiar with what happened said he’s okay and recovering.

"I was surprised when I found out no one did anything," said Xavier Houston, a student.  "Especially when I found out it was a bunch of middle-schoolers."

FOX 26 met with students and parents outside Langham Creek High School Friday. Almost all the students had seen video of the attack.

"I heard there were kids doing donuts and stuff, causing a ruckus with their dirt bikes," said Logan Wisniewski, a student.  "The coach wasn’t happy with it.  He asked them politely to stop doing that.  The kids weren’t having that, so they decided to jump him."

"They should be ashamed of themselves," said Keisha Wisniewski, a parent. "They should be in jail.  That’s horrible."


SkyFOX flew above the high school Friday afternoon as several parents stood in line to pick up their children early. After the attack, reports surfaced of at least one threatening social media post mentioning the possibility of a school shooting.

"I was shocked," said Houston.  "I kind of didn’t want to go to school today.  I was really trying to see if I could go home."
