Throughout his 20-year coaching career, Sadler has educated and coached students at Liberty High School in Liberty and C.E. King High School in Sheldon, Texas remaining true to his strong Texas roots. 
Fans can expect to see an up-tempo pace from the Roos this fall as Sadler will focus on the physicality of athletes. “I look forward to building on traditions that have been established at Killeen High School and getting the Roo Pride and spirit roaring in Leo Buckley Stadium,” Sadler said.
Killeen High Principal Dr. Kara Trevino said, “We are excited to welcome Coach Sadler, Jessica, and Gunnar to Killeen High School! Coach Sadler’s experiences and successes over the last 20 years of helping grow student-athletes into leaders on the field and in the classroom will add to the long-standing traditions and successes of Killeen High. I know he is really looking forward to building relationships with our staff, students, and parents and becoming the newest member of the Killeen High School family.”
Sadler earned his Bachelor of Science from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas.
