In a special meeting Tuesday morning, the Whitehouse school board approved the hiring of Ryan Tomlin as the new boys basketball coach.
Tomlin was previously head coach with the Bullard Panthers. During his time in Bullard, Tomlin led the Panthers to the 2006 state finals and two district titles in a three year period.
Tomlin will replace Wally Dawkins who spent 21 years as head basketball coach of the Wildcats. Dawkins is now coaching at Brook Hill.
