Brandon Mullis, former Ragsdale HS assistant coach and head coach at North Davidson, named new head Men’s Basketball Coach at Southwest Guilford HS

Southwest Guilford High School is excited to announce that Brandon Mullis will be joining the Cowboy family as the next Head Men’s Varsity Basketball Coach.

Coach Mullis will take over the basketball program from Guy Shavers who recently resigned after 14 seasons.

Coach Mullis has 16 years of coaching experience with the last two seasons as the Head Basketball Coach at North Davidson HS. In two short seasons as head coach, the Black Knights won 40 games and were most recently named 2018-19 Central Carolina Conference Champions. They also advanced to the 3rd round of the 2A NCHSAA State Playoffs. This season’s record of 24-6 is the second best record in North Davidson school history.

Previous to the last two seasons at North Davidson, Coach Mullis spent 6 years as an assistant at Southern Durham HS and Ragsdale HS. He also worked as an assistant under Matt Ridge for 5 seasons at Davidson County Community College.

Coach Mullis has coached two NCCA East-West All Star players, four collegiate All-Americans, and 6 players who have been selected as Conference/Region Players of the Year.

Our school administration is honored to have him and his family as part of our Southwest family! Coach Mullis has been married for 12 years to his wife Erika and they have two daughters Kaitlyn 8 and Sarah 5.

We would like to invite our SW returning players and staff to meet Coach Mullis on Monday at 5 PM in the Coggins Gym.

****Southwest Guilford High School Athletic Press Release from Southwest Guilford Athletic Director Brindon Christman***


  1. All due respect but Who is this??? I’ve been involved in HS/AAU and College coaching in the Triad for the past 25 years and never heard of this guys??

  2. You must not have been paying close attention lately then. We felt very lucky to get him two years ago. SouthWest Guilford is now the lucky ones. This guy completely turned around a doormat program into one of the top handful of programs in state at 2a level. Really turned around the culture and program at North Davidson. We wish Coach Mullis well!

  3. Coach Mullis coached Themus Fulks, who was one of the top players in the state this past season…Fulks had 6-7 40-plus point games and should have been on the AP All-State team and if you take the private schools out of the equation, he probably would have been All-State, but that’s OK, I’m just trying to say that Fulks was the real deal and Coach Mullis helped him along the way, and helped him and the ND Knights to get there and they sure did….

    I had never heard anything out of North Davidson basketball before Coach Mullis got there, it was always North Davidson football and baseball, but Coach Mullis sort of put them on the map…

    SWG will not be easy, but have to think Coach Mullis will be the right man to build the program….

  4. One more point to make on Fulks, he averaged 35 points a game this past season for North Davidson….
