Kasie Brewer, a former Rockwall assistant girls basketball coach and Mesquite Horn head coach, was named the new RHS head girls basketball coach last week.

Brewer takes over the helm of the successful program after longtime head coach Jill McDill left for Sunnyvale.

McDill led the Lady Jackets to a 40-0 Class 5A state championship in 2007, a Class 5A runner-up finish in 2006 and a Class 4A runner-up finish in 2012.

Brewer,  an assistant coach at Rockwall from 2007 until 2012, took over the head coaching position at Mesquite Horn for the 2012-2013 season. She posted a 25-7 record, reached the regional quarterfinals and was named District 12-5A Coach of the Year.

She has already started off-season workouts with the girls, but will finish her teaching commitment for this semester at Horn.
