Logan Minnick Picked as Next Head Coach of KHS Football

Coach Minnick returns to Kearney after 5 years in Raytown

Kearney, Mo., January 27, 2022: There’s a new leader of the pack for the Kearney High School football Bulldogs.

Logan Minnick has been tapped to take the head coaching position for the KHS squad. His hiring was confirmed during the Kearney School District Board of Education’s meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 26.

Coach Minnick comes to Kearney after five years as head coach of the Raytown High School football team. At RHS, he took over a program that hadn’t seen a winning season in 28 years. Since then, Minnick has accumulated a record of 36-18, four consecutive winning seasons, two conference championships, three district championship appearances, and advanced the Bluejays to the state quarterfinals.

Coach Minnick will be back in familiar territory when he joins the KHS team. He was a member of then-Head Coach Greg Jones’ staff when the Bulldogs earned the state football championship in 2015 and then returned as a state finalist a year later. Prior to that, Coach Minnick had stops as an assistant coach at North Kansas City High School and Staley High School, and one year in his hometown at Richmond High School.

“We are very excited to have Coach Minnick rejoin Team Bulldogs at Kearney High School,” KSD Activities Director David Schwarzenbach said. “He will be a great teacher and mentor for our student-athletes, and I expect we’re going to see some real growth in the team.”

In addition to his head coaching responsibilities for football, Minnick will also serve as a PE/weights teacher, Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Head Summer Strength & Conditioning Coach, and Spring Activities Supervisor at KHS.
