Madison Athletic Director Joe Bronkella announced the hiring of LeRoy Wilson as the new Varsity boys football coach. “We are very excited to welcome Coach Wilson to the Madison family,” shares Bronkella. “Coach Wilson brings 15 years of football coaching experience across all aspects of the game.”

Wilson has coordinated offense, defense, and special teams during his tenure. “I want to teach these athletes the game,” states Wilson. “I have studied and learned from some great coaches and mentors over the years and will continue to gain all the knowledge I can to put our athletes in a position to be successful.”

Over the last 15 years, Wilson has held coaching positions at:

Seymour High School: Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, Special Teams Coordinator, Receivers Coach, and Defensive Backs Coach.

Providence High School: Offensive Coordinator, Quarterbacks Coach, and Receivers Coach.

Charlestown High School Quarterbacks Coach.

Clarksville High School Football Scout.

Clarksville Middle School Offensive Coordinator and Assistant Head Coach.

“My coaching philosophy is simple, Family - Education - Athletics,” said Wilson. “I have learned how education, a positive attitude, organization, a relentless work ethic, and a growth mindset are vital to the success of running a football program. I strive to be a role model and mentor for my student-athletes. I want them to know I care about them as young men and their goals and aspirations after they leave this program. I will teach them how leadership and trust are valuable tools in handling life’s many experiences.”

Wilson holds a Bachelor of Science in Sport Administration from the University of Louisville and a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Indiana University S.E. Last year he taught Algebra I and Trigonometry at Seymour High School and is also licensed in Physical Education.

“I moved here four years ago with my wife, who is from Madison, and being a member of this community has allowed me to see all the amazing things this school corporation is doing and the vision it has for the future. From academics to building leadership and character, Madison is doing great things with it’s students,” states Wilson. “I want to thank the administration for this excellent opportunity to lead our football program. I’m excited to bring growth to Madison football and a competitive culture to our community.” Coach Wilson lives in Madison with his wife, Alana, and son, Leo. In addition to leading the football program, Wilson will teach math at MCHS beginning in the 2019-202o school year.
