Kaukauna High School is looking for a new football coach after the resignation of Chris Sievert, according to Corey Baumgartner, the school’s associate principal of co-curricular activities.
Sievert was the head coach for the Ghosts for the past four seasons, compiling a 9-27 overall record.
“The Kaukauna Area School District would like to sincerely thank Coach Sievert for the time, commitment and passion that he bestowed upon our program over the course of the past four years,” Baumgartner said in a release. “He gave everything he had to our student-athletes and strived to provide a foundation from which to build a successful program.”
Sievert was not available for comment on Sunday.
Sievert was an assistant coach under Keith Vanden Heuvel at Kaukauna from 2000 to 2003, then joined Steve Jorgensen’s coaching staff at Kimberly as defensive coordinator in 2004.
He took over as head coach at Kaukauna in 2009. The Ghosts went 0-9 that first season, then improved to 3-6 in 2010 and 5-4 in 2011 before slipping to 1-8 last fall, beating Sheboygan North 42-34 in the final game of the season when non-playoff teams were allowed to play an extra game.
“As we focus on the future of the program, we will continue to work toward putting Kaukauna High School in position to become one of the best in the Valley Football Association’s North Division,” Baumgartner said.
