Walton, considered one of the top academic schools in the state, has already received a number of resumes and phone calls about the vacant head coaching position.
In May 2014, Dixon, who has more than 30 years of high school coaching experience, was named the ninth head football coach at Walton High School, replacing Rocky Hidalgo, who left to become the head coach at Glynn Academy.
According to his bio on the Walton football website, Dixon came to Walton from national power house, 11-time South Carolina state championship Byrnes High School where he was the defensive coordinator. He also was the DC at North Gwinnett High School, helping turn the Bulldogs into one of the top programs in the metro area. Before North Gwinnett, Dixon had been head coach at North Broward Prep in Florida and Hazard High School and Knott County Central in Kentucky.
