Tyler Peterson hired as Brandon head coach/AD

BRANDON (WLBT) - The coaching carousel continues in 6A Region 2. After one season at Northwest Rankin, Tyler Peterson has been hired as the new head football coach and athletic director at Brandon.

Peterson's Cougars were 5-8 in 2014, reaching the first round of the 6A playoffs. Before his stop at Northwest Rankin, Peterson coached at Kosciusko and Noxpater.

Brandon principal Buddy Bailey said in a statement: "We are excited about Tyler's ability to build upon our past successes and take this program to the next level. He has done this at several different schools and we look forward to him continuing to build upon the “Standard of Excellence” that has been established at Brandon High School."

Peterson will replace his cousin Brad Peterson. Brad left Brandon to be the head coach/athletic director at Madison Central. So we will have Peterson Bowl II in the 2015 season.
