Battery Creek has parted ways with football coach Walt Wilson after three seasons, the school confirmed Thursday. 

Athletics director Sarah Hayes said offensive coordinator Cameron Bolton has been named the Dolphins’ interim head coach, and a search for Wilson’s permanent replacement will begin immediately. 

“We would like to thank Coach Wilson for his dedication to our student-athletes not only on the football field, but also for his tireless efforts to ensure our student-athletes had opportunities to play at the next level,” Hayes said. 

Wilson was named the LowcoSports Coach of the Year after leading the Dolphins to a 4-6 season and a No. 3 playoff seed in his first year at the helm in 2017, but his young team struggled to a 2-9 mark a year later and finished 3-6 this season. Battery Creek has lost in the first round of the playoffs each of the past three seasons. 

Wilson met with his team Wednesday to share the news that he would not return. Hayes said the school will consider both internal and external candidates and hopes to make a hire by the end of February.
