Born on August 5, 1956, in Abilene, TX, to Bill and Doris Easterling, he grew up in Coahoma, TX, and graduated from Angelo State University in 1979. Shortly thereafter, he started his teaching and coaching career at Post High School in Post, TX, where he would meet his wife, Amy. Together they had three children—Brice, Cole, and Kylie.
