Antonio Wiley

Coach Antonio Wiley enters his 2nd year leading the Coppell High School Boys Football program. Coach Wiley brings 16 total years of coaching experience. A strong defensive mind, his past coaching experience includes Community, Mesquite Poteet, Lake Travis, Lewisville, and Wichita Falls Hirschi. An impressive track of success, Coach Wiley won a state championship as the safeties coach in 2016 with Lake Travis. He has made the playoffs 12 of 16 years and posts a 31-14 overall record as a head coach. A fun fact, Coach Wiley’s defensive scheme while defensive coordinator at Mesquite Poteet managed to squeak out a win versus Patrick Mahomes.

As an athlete, Coach Wiley played football and ran track at Dallas Samuell High School. He earned tremendous accolades including 3-year varsity letter winner and two-time first team all-district selection. Samuell was a top two defense in the state at the time and playoff contenders every year. He went on to play corner at Eastern New Mexico University where he started for four years and was a 1st team All-Conference defensive back. Coach Wiley earned a liberal studies degree and also serves in an administrative capacity as Boys Coordinator for the district. Away from the field, Coach Wiley enjoys archery, fishing, and watching the Dallas Cowboys (especially in the 90’s). His favorite quote, “Greatness is a lot of small things done well” -Ray Lewis

Coach Wiley’s inaugural 2022 season was impressive with a record of 9-2, bi-district playoff appearance, and state ranked. Seniors helped lead the way with the play of Jack Fishpaw, Zack Darkoch, Blake Robbins, Malkam Wallace, Nick Radicic, Braxton Myers, Ikenna Odimegwu, and Gabe Warren. Playmaker returners Baron Tipton, Weston Polk, Luca Grosoli, Zach Cody, Ayrion Sneed, and Amari’a Wiley will help continue excellence into the 2023 season. And expect quite a few new faces making their way onto many minutes on the field. A tough off season as Coach Wiley stresses work ethic in the weightroom. Fans can expect a high octane defense that applies pressure with multiple looks. Offense will once again be a talented quick hitting spread adding an even more dynamic run game this season.  

Coppell ISD Athletics is filled with coaches that care. When asked “Why you coach”, Coach Wiley responded “I coach because it gives me the opportunity to have an impact on tomorrow’s leaders. In my humble opinion team sports are one of the only places where young men and women learn accountability, responsibility and how to work in a team environment.”
