Mr. David A. Willson has been named head basketball coach at Memphis University School. Willson, a 1999 graduate of MUS, has served as head basketball coach at Emory & Henry College in Virginia since 2013. He takes over for Coach Matt Bakke, who is stepping down from coaching after 20 years with MUS basketball and seven years as head coach.
“David Willson brings a level of coaching experience and a deep familiarity with MUS traditions that moved him to the top of a list of highly qualified candidates,” Headmaster Pete Sanders said. “In addition to being a successful and progressive coach, he brings experience with recruiting and admissions on the college side of the equation. He will be a valuable resource for our student-athletes – no matter their sport – who seek to play at the next level.”
