The Concord Christian Athletic Department is excited to announce that Mike Wilkins will join Scott Graham to take CCS basketball to a new level of excellence, service and achievement.

Scott Graham is a tremendous young man. We feel that he has great potential as basketball coach but we wanted to bring someone along side of him that will help him grow as a coach and help build our basketball program. Mike and Scott know each other and work well together. This is going to be a very good move for Scott, his future, and our basketball players and program. Athletic Director Bruce Johnson
Mike Wilkins was born and raised in Knoxville, TN and currently lives in Lenoir City where he has coached the past three years at North Middle School. Mike is well known for his ability to build programs and has done a tremendous job at North Middle leading his teams to back to back district and regional championships and the the Final Four State Tournament.
My name is Mike Wilkins, better known to most of my teams as Coach Mike. I am honored to be joining Concord Christian as your new basketball coach but even more excited about getting to know and work with Scott and such a great group of athletes.
Mike attributes his coaching style and success to his father and his hard work, dedication, patience and love for the game and hopes to bring those things to CCS. Mike began playing sports at Northwest Middle School and West High School.
The experiences I had and the friends I made taught me so much about teamwork and competition. I started coaching my nephews’ Rec/AAU teams when I was nineteen years old and have continued coaching ever since. Coach Mike
Mike has been married for eighteen years to his wife Elizabeth and they have two sons, Mason age fourteen, and Hudson age eleven. They enjoy anything and everything sports related, outdoor activities and spending time with family and friends. They also love watching their kids compete and grow athletically.
Through the years and experiences with some amazing coaches I have learned that coaching gives us the ability to make a positive impact in our students’ lives on and off the court. Coach Graham and I are excited for the upcoming year and the opportunity to develop these fine young men. Coach Mike
Getting the opportunity to have a guy of Coach Mike's caliber join our program is not one that comes along every day. This is a unique set of circumstances that I am excited to be a part of, to grow and push our program to new heights. Having Coach Mike will allow all of us to grow and to reach our potential. It will allow us to truly get where we need to be. Coach Graham.
