Tyler Brown resigns after one season
GLADEVILLE -- Wilson Central High is in the process of searching for a new boys basketball coach in the wake of Tyler Brown's sudden resignation Monday evening.
WCHS Athletic Director Chip Bevis confirmed Brown's resignation Tuesday, saying, "he called me (Monday) yesterday and told me he is resigning.
"The assistant coaches will continue with everything the team has scheduled for the summer and we will post the job opening as soon as possible."
Brown, who went 12-15 overall (4-10 in District 9-AAA) in one season at Wilson Central after taking over for Troy Bond, is reportedly taking an assistant coaching position with the boys program at Spring Hill High in Maury County.
Brown had an overall coaching record of 94-77 over the six seasons prior to his only season at Wilson Central, including 28-27 at Class AA Hickman County High where he guided the Lady Bulldogs.
Prior to his time in Centerville, Brown spent four years at Class A Santa Fe where his girls teams posted a record of 66-50 and made three trips to the semifinals of the Region 6-A tournament.
Bond, now the coach at Oakland High in Murfreesboro, was the coach at Wilson Central for 14 seasons.
The first coach in the history of the program at Central, Bond ran up a record of 269-152, a winning percentage of .639, with four trips to the state tournament.
