He has also been the assistant middle school cross country coach since 2018.

“I fell in love with running during college and just got more involved on campus as Emory (his daughter) started running cross country,” Mr. Thompson said.  “I have coached almost all of the varsity runners in middle school, and it is a great group of runners and parents.  I am thrilled to take on a bigger role within the program.

Coach Thompson and his wife Katherine (’95) have three children: Olivia, Emory (11th grader), and Brooks (5th grade). They are actively involved at Ingleside Baptist Church.

In his spare time, Brad likes to read, go to the beach, and watch sports.
