“We are thrilled to introduce our new head boys basketball coach, Evan Wyllie,” said Athletic Director Andy Thigpen. “Coach Wyllie is well-connected in the basketball community with coaching stops at the collegiate and high school levels.”

Wyllie’s coaching career began as an assistant coach at Dwight Township High School in Illinois from 2012 to 2015. He then served as the head coach at Norris City-Omaha-Enfield High School from 2015 to 2018, leading the team to a regional championship in 2015 and back-to-back 20-win seasons.

In 2018, Wyllie became the head coach at Frankfort Community High School, where he led the team to a 21-11 record and an IHSA Class 2A Regional Championship in the 2018-19 season.

  • Most recently, Wyllie served as the head coach at Lincoln-Way Central High School from 2022 to 2024, increasing the team’s win total by five games in his second season and achieving the third-highest win total in school history.

At the collegiate level, Wyllie spent three seasons with the University of West Florida men’s basketball program, serving as a graduate assistant from 2019 to 2021 and as an assistant coach during the 2021-22 season.

“I am so excited for the opportunity to lead the Choctaw Boys Basketball program,” said Coach Wyllie on Thursday. “I am looking forward to meeting all the players, parents, and community members next week. I would like to thank Athletic Director Andy Thigpen, Principal Michelle Heck, and the rest of the search committee for believing in me and my vision going forward. Go Indians!”
