CARTHAGE - Legendary girls basketball coach and Murfreesboro native Campbell Brandon is back on the basketball sidelines at the age of 78. Brandon, who assisted his son Bud at Wilson Central most recently for 13 years, has accepted the girls basketball job at Smith County. His son, Bud, resigned at Wilson Central to run for political office in Lebanon. Brandon, who is a TSSAA Hall of Fame member, coached at Lebanon High School and Lascassas High School before that. He led the Blue Devilettes to the state tournament nine times, winning it all in 1971. His last appearance in 1982, Lebanon finished runner up to Smyrna, coached by former Rutherford County Director of Schools and Smyrna Town Manager Harry Gill, Jr. Brandon compiled a 748-225 won-lost record in his storied coaching career, at both Lascassas and Lebanon. The Lebanon High School gym carries his name. His record still stands as the fourth winningest girls coach in the United States and the second winningest basketball coach in the state of Tennessee.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
