Former assistant Wilson to lead football team

63b5ddcee07ba.imageWINCHESTER — Todd Wilson, an offensive line coach for the Colonels for the past four seasons, takes over after James Wood chose not to renew the contract of former head coach Ryan Morgan, who complied a 23-30 mark over six seasons. James Wood was 2-8 last season.
Prior to coaching for the Colonels, Wilson spent six years an assistant coach at East Hardy High School in Baker, W.Va. During his time there, the Cougars had a 63-14 record, made six consecutive playoff appearances and finished as the state runner-up twice. Wilson graduated from Moorefield (W.Va.) High School and won a state championship as a player there.
“Coach Wilson is a model of consistency, respect and character,” James Wood coordinator of student activities Brian Sullivan said in a news release. “We could not be more excited to name him our head football coach. His knowledge of the game is evident and our student-athletes will benefit greatly from his leadership. Coach Wilson prides himself on being a great person, a hard worker and a leader in the classroom and community. I am confident he will instill those core values in our student-athletes.”
