Wilkerson now coaching in Dothan at Northview

Former Escambia County High School assistant football coach and teacher Robert Wilkerson is the newest coach and educator at Northview High School in Dothan.

Wilkerson is the new defensive line coach for the Cougars and will also be an assistant track coach.

He said he is ready to take on the opportunity that he has been given with his new school.

“I’m excited about getting started,” Wilkerson said. “I’ve already started coaching and will begin teaching in August. I think working at Northview in a larger school system will give me great opportunities because they are offering more and putting more in the classroom.”
