Edward Waters hires Brad Bernard

EWC Head Football Coach Brad Bernard
DAYTONA BEACH, FL -- Word gets around quick in the coaching profession.

Even before former Bethune-Cookman offensive coordinator Brad Bernard was hired as head football coach at Edward Waters on Monday, his phone started ringing.

"Some people I hadn't talked to in 12 years were calling to congratulate me and sometimes asking for a job," Bernard said. Bernard will be officially introduced today at the NAIA school in Jacksonville. And then he will begin making his own calls to put together a coaching staff. One of the first calls he will make, Bernard said, will be to old boss, former B-CU head coach Alvin Wyatt.

"Everyone in America would like to talk to that man," Bernard said of the Wildcats' all-time winningest coach. "He's a great head coach. Hopefully he can give me some guidance."

He played at and graduated from Georgia Southern where he helped lead the Eagles to the conference championship three years.  He led Bethune-Cookman to two Division 1-AA playoff appearances and to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Championship in 2002.
