Shelbi Followwill was recently hired as Brashear’s new boys’ basketball coach and athletic director. She takes over both positions from Nathan Miller who took the boys basketball head coaching position at Knox County. Followwill most recently served as an assistant girls basketball coach at Macon for the 2019-20 season. Followwill says her time at Macon prepared her for taking on a head coaching role.
Along with her time alongside Richard Driscoll at Macon, Followwill says she had several coaching influences during her previous assistant coaching job at La Plata.
Followwill is a 2012 graduate of Grundy County High School. She played basketball and ran track at Central College in Pella, Iowa. Followwill says one of her main focuses as a coach is creating strong team chemistry.
Followwill takes over a Brashear Tigers’ squad that went 5-10 this past season.
