Wellman was the director at Ann Arbor Skyline, host of a 2021 district tournament, when Brighton won the third of its four athletic championships.

He will now try to maintain that run of postseason success as the new head coach of the Bulldogs.

Wellman replaces Paul Ash, who stepped down after posting a 133-45 record the past eight seasons.

“I’ve had the itch to get back into coaching,” said Wellman, 52, who lives in Brighton. “I saw this job open up. I thought I would look into it to see what direction they’re looking at going. I’m about coaching girls who want to work hard and want to have success and will do what they can to do that.
