Fountain Inn High School is excited to announce the selection of Brett Nichols as head football coach of the FI Fury. Coach Nichols will begin building the football program this fall working with seventh and eighth grade students zoned for FIHS.
Nichols comes to FIHS from Gardner-Webb University, where as assistant coach he was responsible for coordinating the offense and coaching the quarterbacks for a NCAA Division I FCS, Big South Conference football program. During his coaching tenure at Gardner-Webb, Nichols recruited and coached the Big South Conference Offensive Player of the Year 2016 (QB Tyrell Maxwell). Nichols had 18 Big South All-Conference team positions, six offensive players named to All-American teams and three players in NFL Camps (Kenny Cook, KC Chiefs; Mike Estes, San Diego Chargers; Tyrell Maxwell, LA Rams).
Nichols also served as the Academic Liaison for all football student athletes. Under his leadership, the football team earned the highest semester GPA in program history.
Nichols graduated from The University of South Carolina in 2006 with a degree in business. He is married to Elise Nichols of Fountain Inn, S.C. The couple has two children, Emma Davis and William Brett, Jr.
