A 2002 graduate of T.R. Miller High School was named head coach and athletic director for W.S. Neal High School Monday during a special meeting of the Escambia County School Board.

Brandon Wilcox will join the coaching and teaching staff at W.S. Neal High School this week, according to Ecambia County School Superintendent John Knott.

“We wanted to make this placement as soon as possible,” Knott said of the special Monday meeting. “Waiting a few more days wouldn’t be beneficial to our schools.”

Knott said Wilcox comes to the East Brewton school after leaving Centerpoint High School as the offensive coordinator there.

“He are excited to be able to add him to the W.S. Neal team,” Knott said. “He has a stellar career having accomplished at lot in his time as a coach.”

Wilcox served as the athletic director and head coach at Montevallo High School for four years. In his four seasons with the Bulldogs, Wilcox put together a record of 28-16, which was the first winning record for a head coach at Montevallo since Charles Boren’s 28-22 record from 1998-2002.

Wilcox also served as head coach and athletic director at Marion High School for two years following a two-year stint as assistant coach at Enterprise High School.
