Coach Dix was also the assistant coach when the Viking’s won state titles in 2001 and 2003 under Seth Vinning.

East Hall Athletics announced on Twitter that they hired Joe Dix as the new head basketball coach, replacing Coach Tommy Yancey. During his two seasons coaching at East Hall, he had a record of 22-28, winning a Lanierland title in his second season with the Vikings.

 

Coach Dix has been the head coach at East Hall from 2004-2018. During his 14 seasons as head coach, the Vikings went to the state playoffs in almost all of his seasons, along with two state championship appearances and a state title in 2005. 

 

He left at the end of 2018 to coach at Collins Hill and turned around their basketball program, with three appearances in the state playoffs. He led the team this year to the Sweet Sixteen.
