Don Willis is returning to Oklahoma City after eight years in Texas.

The former Millwood coach has been chosen as Centennial’s new head coach. He was at Millwood for 22 years, including nine as the head coach, leading the Falcons to three consecutive Class 2A titles from 2000-02.

He won at least seven games in each of his nine seasons, compiling a 91-27 record overall. He left in 2004 to take a job in Texas.

Willis replaces Mark Ryan, who moved on after a difficult battle with health issues last season.
