Having taken Yukon’s football program to the playoffs for five straight seasons, coach Todd Wilson appears to be moving on to his next challenge.
After nine seasons with the Millers, Wilson is expected to bey named the coach at Class 4A Cleveland this week.
Yukon athletic director David Fisher is beginning the search process to replace Wilson.
“Coaching in 6A Division I is a tough task, so we would like to find someone with previous head coaching experience,” Fisher said. “And Todd was my assistant athletic director, so we’ll need someone who can fill that role as well.”
Cleveland, located in northeastern Oklahoma, was 5-6 last season.
Yukon hadn’t been to the playoffs in 13 years when Wilson guided the Millers to the postseason in 2009. Edmond North and Yukon are the only Class 6A schools on the west side of the state to make the playoffs each of the last five seasons.
