Tuttle selects Ballard as Koons' replacement

TUTTLE —

Former Lincoln Christian assistant coach Brad Ballard has been chosen as Tuttle's new head football coach, replacing Philip Koons who resigned last month.

Ballard coached at Lincoln Christian for eight years and joins the Tigers after his predecessor's 21 years in charge ended abruptly. He served as a defensive coordinator, and also has experience coaching at the college level.

Koons' shoes are big ones to fill. The long-serving coach amassed more than 200 wins at Tuttle while bringing home two state titles.
