"He's a bright guy, a young coach who is connected to the area," Skerry said Friday. "He'll be a good example for the guys of what it takes to be a successful student."
Simpkins had been head coach at St. Albans, an all-boys school in Washington, the past four years. He also coached two years at Sidwell Friends School in Washington.
