Football coach search ongoing

Beacon Staff, Staff Report

The search is well underway for the replacement of former head football coach Trey Brown.

Sources tell The Beacon that a replacement will be named within two weeks.

The new hire will be responsible for the direction of the football program, beginning with spring preparations for the 2018 season.

Numerous candidates were on campus during the past week to discuss a potential position with Wilkes.

Recruit visits are still occuring under the direction of acting head coach David Biever. Biever managed the offensive line under Brown.

Numerous recruits were on campus for this past weekend’s open house taking a look at what Wilkes has to offer.

It is still unclear if Biever will continue in a role at Wilkes, but most likely depends on the new hire, sources said.

Wilkes Football is looking to rebound after a miserable 2017 campaign that left the team winless (0-10).
