Megan was born in Tyler, Texas on June 30, 1986 to Jill and Kyle McGill. She grew up in Chandler, Texas and resided in Bullard, Texas, where she was a beloved teacher and coach at Bullard High School for five years. She previously coached at the University of Texas at Tyler and Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Megan was a graduate of Brownsboro High School, a graduate and scholarship athlete of Lon Morris College in Jacksonville, Texas, and at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma. At SWOSU, she met the love of her life, Jonathan Dobrinski, whom she married on August 9, 2008 and have two beautiful children, Ella (6) and Davis (3).
Megan was nicknamed Smiley for her classic, brighten-up-any-room smile and was much loved and respected by her family, players, students, numerous friends and coaching colleagues. Megan left an obvious legacy of kindness and was seen for being the light in a dark world. While cancer took her body, it did not take her light. "Cancer Picked the Wrong Coach" because her light, which is the light of Jesus, will continue to shine in the many lives touched by 'Coach D' and all will take a piece of her legacy with them to be shared to so many others. She has fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. Well done good and faithful servant. She grew up a member of the First United Methodist Church of Chandler, Texas and was currently an active member of First Baptist Church of Bullard, Texas.
She is preceded in death by her grandfathers, John L. McGill and James Black.
