Knox Central Head Baseball Coach and Assistant Girls’ Basketball Coach Brandon Hillard has agreed to accept the Athletic Director position at Casey County High School.

Hillard has served as the baseball coach at Knox Central High School for the past five seasons where he compiled a 77-81 record.

The Panthers are coming off an 18-10 season that included a 51st District Championship and a first round victory in the 13th Region Tournament over Corbin High School.

Hillard’s successor will inherit a team that returns all starters from the 2015 season.
