Wellman was the sporting director at Ann Arbor Skyline, which hosts the 2021 district championship, when Brighton won the third of their four consecutive championships.

He will now attempt to maintain post-season success as the Bulldogs’ new head coach.

Wellman replaces Paul Ash, who resigned after setting the record 133-45 in the past eight seasons.

“I’m itching to go back to training,” said Wellman, 52, who lives in Brighton. “I saw this job open. I thought I’d look into it to see what direction they’re looking at. I train girls who want to work hard and want to succeed and they’re going to do what they can to do that.”
