Wally Dawkins is stepping down as the Brook Hill basketball coach.

He will remain the school's athletic director.

Dawkins has named assistant coach Jacob Agnew to replace him as the head coach of the Guard.

"If I just wanted to stay on and get more wins, that would be selfish," Dawkins told KETK.  "Our school has a better chance of winning a state championship if Jacob is the head coach."

"I've been here three years under Coach Dawkins," Agnew said.  "He's a legend out here in East Texas."

Dawkins coached for 33 years.  He won 689 games.

In addition to coaching at Brook Hill, Dawkins also coached at Whitehouse and Chapel Hill.
