WBTV Sports learned today that Keith Wilkes has finally been approved as the new head football coach at Olympic. He comes to the Trojans after 2 season at Vance High School.
In his 2 years as the Cougars head coach, they went 15-10 including a 9-4 record in 2012 and a 3rd place finish in the MECKA Conference.
He takes over a Olympic program that went 7-5 last season and has not had a losing season since 2007.
Before coming to Vance, Coach Wilkes had tremendous success at Winston-Salem Carver. In 16 seasons, he won 139 games, claimed 11 conference titles, and won 2 state championships.
Olympic is in the Southern Meck 8 Conference and it could be a very wide open conference race in football after the retirement of Jim Oddo at Charlotte Catholic.
