McKinney Boyd Athletics Director Don Drake told TownSquareBuzz.com on Thursday that the Broncos have added three new head coaches for its varsity programs.
Jason Burton (pictured) will be the boys basketball coach. He comes to Boyd from Texas State University, where he had been an assistant coach for two years. Prior to that, he helped lead the Texas A&M-Commerce squad for four years as an assistant coach.
With Burton’s help, the A&M-Commerce team reached the Lone Star Conference Tournament each of his four years at the school and advanced to the championship game in 2007-2008. During the next season, his squad defeated four nationally ranked teams.
In addition to his duties on the court, Burton also served as an adjunct instructor in the College of Business and Technology at Texas A&M-Commerce.
As a player, Burton was a three-year letter winner at Austin College, leading his team in scoring and rebounding during his senior season. He was later named MVP and represented Austin College at the 2005 NCAA Leadership Conference.
Meagan Wilson will be the new girls soccer coach. She comes to Boyd from Frisco Wakeland. There, she posted an overall record of 69-6-7 while leading the varsity girls soccer team to four consecutive district championships and a 4A State Championship. Prior to her head coaching success in Frisco, Wilson honed her skills as an assistant coach at Wylie High School from 2007-2009, with the D’Feeters Soccer Club in 2006 and at Texas Women’s University from 2006-2007.
Wilson played four years as the starting goalkeeper at East Central University and earned a spot on the Lone Star Conference All-Tournament team in 2004. That year, she posted three shutout victories and was second in the conference in total saves with 120. She led the league in saves per game with a 6.67 average.
Beth Purl will also be the girls golf coach. Purl had been the assistant girls golf coach for the past seven years and will be taking over for Kay Dalke, who is retiring.
