Bryan England is leaving his job as the boys basketball coach at Winfield after three seasons.

Bryan England resigned as the boys basketball coach at Winfield High School on Monday morning, ending a three-year run at the helm for the Generals.

England will begin as an assistant coach at Teays Valley Christian School next season.

“I’ve been close to the program [at Teays Valley Christian] for the last few years because of my relationship with [head coach] Ryan Arrowood,” England said. “I’ve worked many camps with Ryan and we’ve had a lot of discussions. He’s building something over there. In year three of his program, he’s really trying to take it to the next level. I believe in his mission and I believe in the mission of the school. I look at it as an opportunity.”

Arrowood took over the program in the spring of 2015 after spending time as an assistant at Huntington Prep and as a head coach at Hannan.

England was an assistant at Winfield for three years under coach Pat McGinnis before taking over in the spring of 2014. The Generals accumulated a 32-41 record over those his three seasons and fell in a regional final against Chapmanville last season.

“I’m thankful for the opportunity I had at Winfield,” England said. “I have nothing but good memories. I’m really thankful to the players I had — the effort they gave and their willingness to buy in.”

Winfield principal Bruce McGrew did not return the Gazette-Mail’s calls on Monday and nothing in terms of possible replacements was known at press time.
