News 8 sat down with new Dallas ISD Athletic Director Gil Garza Friday to talk about how the department will move forward following a recruiting scandal that led to the firing of 15 district employees.

Garza, who has 30 years of coaching experience, spent this week in meetings with DISD's coaching staff outlining his expectations. He told us he and his team's focus is now changing the culture in the athletics department and restoring credibility and strength in Dallas ISD's athletics programs.

He also said he's hearing from coaches across the district who have asked his team of leaders to go through their schools to double-check paperwork and make sure they're doing things right.
