Danny Britt transitions duties at Benedictine, will continue as football head coach; Tom Palmer hired as athletic director

SAVANNAH, Ga. – Benedictine Military School has transitioned Danny Britt’s duties in athletic development and hired Tom Palmer as athletic director, BC Headmaster Fr. Frank Ziemkiewicz, O.S.B., announced today. Britt, BC’s athletic director for the past six years, will continue as the Cadets’ football head coach.

“Given the excellent performance of our athletic program the last six years under the direction of Danny Britt, BC has created the position of athletic director as distinct from coaching responsibilities,” Ziemkiewicz said. “This will allow Coach Britt to focus on his coaching responsibilities as well as the development of BC’s athletic facilities.”

Britt coached Benedictine to GHSA Class AA football state championship victories in 2016 and 2014. During Britt’s time as athletic director, BC has been named the No. 1 boys’ athletic program in southeast Georgia in all classifications, “A” through “AAAAAAA,” in each of the past five years.

“I believe this is a great opportunity for Benedictine,” Britt said. “Mr. Palmer can put all of his focus into the athletic director’s role, and I can focus completely on football and the development of the athletic facilities.”

Palmer has extensive coaching and entrepreneurial experience. Through a football scholarship, he graduated from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. After a 24-year career in various sales and management roles at Xerox Corporation, he worked at Pinecrest Academy in metro Atlanta from 2005-15, where he coached several sports and was the athletic director and Dean of Students. Palmer, who has a 17-year foundation in Catholic education, joined the BC community this past year. He and his wife, Susan, are members of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.


“We are most grateful for the considerable time and energy that Coach Britt has invested into our athletic program, which has benefitted Benedictine Military School as a whole,” Ziemkiewicz said. “We are excited about the future under the leadership and expertise of Mr. Palmer.”
