Dr. Brian Gwyn, who played football for UTC in the early 1990s, has been named as the new head football coach at Brainerd High School.
Levar Brown, athletic director, said, "We're excited to have him. He comes with a great educational and coaching pedigree. We know he will help build our program and put kids in college."
He said at Carver High School in Atlanta, Dr. Gwyn had 23 players sign college football scholarships.
Brown said Dr. Gwyn will also be an AP English teacher at Brainerd and lead the ninth grade academy.
He is currently at Morrow High School in Morrow, Ga.
Previously, he was at Stockbridge, Ga., for 10 years.
He has also coached at Columbia High School at Decatur, Ga., where he was also the head track coach. He taught at the South Atlanta Education Complex, at Morehouse College and at Morris Brown College.
He gained degrees from UTC and UNC, a master's at American Intercontinental and a doctorate at North Central University.
Stanley Jackson, who was the Brainerd coach for the past two years, is still on staff as a teacher.
