810varsity.com is reporting that they have multiple sources saying the next head football coach in Eudora will be Olathe North Assistant Coach Jesse Owen.
The Eudora School Board has called for a special board meeting at 6:30 PM Monday night. The only item on the agenda is an executive session to discuss personnel. As is standard policy for the School District, officials declined to name any personnel involved in the discussion prior to that board meeting. Any personnel discussions are handled during executive session which is closed to the public. We have been told that Assistant Principal and Activities Director Cara Kimberlin will be available following the special School Board meeting.
If Owen is the next coach of the Eudora High football team, he will bring a good pedigree with him. Owen graduated in 1997 from Olathe North and played on the 1996 state championship squad. Following his graduation from Pittsburg State University, he returned to Olathe North where he has served under one of the dean’s of Kansas City high school football coaching Gene Weir.
Owen currently serves as varsity secondary and special teams coach on the Olathe North staff. He has been at Olathe North for over a decade.
The new football coach will replace Kevin Kopecky who served as Eudora Head Coach for a single season and resigned in March.
