JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Aug. 4, 2010) - Head ETSU track and field coach David Walker announced the hiring of new assistant, Brandon Morton, on Wednesday afternoon. Morton will assist with all aspects of the program.

 

"We are extremely happy to have someone with the abilities that Brandon has," Walker said. "It's good to have him on board, and I feel that he will immediately add to an already outstanding program here at ETSU."

 

Morton brings a lot of success to the Buccaneer program having spent three years as an assistant at Campbell University. While at Campbell, Morton coached 13 Atlantic Sun Conference Champions, nine NCAA Regional qualifiers and 61 A-Sun All-Conference performers.
