Jayson Wilhelm is finding a new home at Menard rival Miles High School as the new head football coach. Wilhelm has spent the last four years with Menard where he posted a 17-27 record in four years.
In 2016, Wilhelm faced a 1-10 rebuilding season before going 9-3 in 2017 with a district championship title beating Miles in a playoff game to knock them out of the playoffs. With various injuries to the Yellow Jackets team, the 2018 season saw a 4-6 record under Wilhelm and a 3-8 2019 season.
Just 60 miles up the road, Wilhelm will take over in the same role with Miles High School where he will replace Charles Boles- who left after only two years to accept a job with Cumby.
“I’ve probably played against them nine or 10 years in a row, so I know it’s a good school with a lot of positive things happening right now, and I decided I wanted to be a part of that,” Wilhelm said in regards to his move. Wilhelm was 1-3 against Miles in his time with Menard and also faced Miles while assistant coaching in Eldorado.
