Adam Wallace couldn’t turn down the chance to go home.
“When home calls, you have to go,” Wallace said.
He replaces Jay Brown, who went 33-39 in seven years with a pair of playoff appearances. The Blue Devils were 4-6 each of the past two seasons.
Wallace helped his first cousin, Nathan McDaniel, turn around the fortunes of Baldwin County. The Tigers won two games in four years before McDaniel was named head coach. They’ve won 21 in four years since.
