Walker High School promotes interim head football coach to permanent position

Heath Brunner

Walker High School didn't have to go far to find its new head football coach.

Heath Brunner, who has served as the Vikings' head coach on an interim basis since September, has been hired to the position permanently, according to the high school's athletic department.

Before his interim position, Brunner served as the offensive coordinator for former Walker head coach John Holladay, who resigned Sep. 3 following an on-field fight with Cullman assistant coach Matt Hopper.
