Former Giles County Bobcat, Ole Miss and East Mississippi Community College football star Bo Wallace is heading into his first season as offensive coordinator for Coahoma Community College in Mississippi.
At East Mississippi in 2011, Wallace broke a NJCAA passing touchdown record when he threw for 4,604 yards and 53 touchdowns. He led the team to a perfect 12-0 season and a national championship.
In 2012, Wallace transferred to Ole Miss where he became a three-year starter, throwing for a total of 9,534 yards and 62 touchdowns in his years as a Rebel. Wallace is remembered for leading the Rebels to victory over undefeated Alabama in 2014 when Ole Miss won 23-17.
In 2017, Wallace joined EMCC staff as the quarterbacks coach, and they won the national championship that year.
Coahoma Community College has struggled in recent years, but Wallace has the chance to coach former Vicksburg High quarterback Joe Johnson Jr. who has a great reputation for leading a team.
The offensive coordinator position will be the highest position Wallace has ever held on the college level and many fans are waiting to see how effective his playing experience will be to help him run an offense.
Tough, competitor, winner and the only player in Ole Miss history to rack up over 10,000 yards of total offense.
Wallace started out coaching at a small Episcopal school in Dallas, TX, then went to back to Tennessee high school ball in 2016. In 2017, he landed back at EMCC before becoming the Offensive Coordinator at his alma mater, Giles County High School, in 2018 where he coached his younger brother, Bryce.
From there, he took offensive coordinator post at Fayette Ware high school and an offense that averaged 5 points a game the year before averaged 35 under Wallace's guidance in 2019.
Wallace's brother, Bryce, has transferred to Coahoma Community College to play for his big brother again.
“Bryce has better talent than I did. He can really play and he is really competitive. He is not as tall as I am and I think that held him back from getting big offers, but he is going to show everyone what he is made of at Coahoma, I believe,” Bo stated.
