“I couldn't be more thrilled for this opportunity as an educator and as a coach,” said Coleman, who will teach physical education pending approval by the school board of trustees.
She previously served as head coach for Speedway, leading the Sparkplugs to the Class 2A state championship this spring.
“Following in the footsteps of a successful, legendary coach in Russ Milligan would not be an easy task for anyone,” said athletic director Jon Zwitt. “Alyssa presents someone with the maturity, experience and motivation to make the best attempt to fill those shoes. In her six years at Speedway she developed into a formidable coach."
Coleman played softball for Butler, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. She also holds a master’s in coaching from Ball State.
