Kay, who has coached football and wrestling at Perkins County for the last two years, replaces Larry Pritchett, who announced his retirement in February.
Many aspects of his new assignment will be familiar to Kay through his many coaching assignments in past years.
Kay graduated from the University of Nebraska-Kearney in 1992, and was a graduate assistant with the football program there.
He was hired in 1992 at Ogallala High School where he taught until 1999. From 1997-2005 he was head football coach at Ogallala.
He served as varsity assistant football and track coach in North Platte from 2005 until 2007.
Kay was employed at Ogallala High School and served as assistant principal and activities director from 1999-2005.
Most recently, Kay has been head football and wrestling coach, has taught accounting, business law and economics at Perkins County High School and assisted in administration at Perkins County Middle school.
Due to time constraints, he plans to discontinue his head wrestling coaching assignment.
Kay earned his master’s degree in educational administration from Chadron State College in 2000, and will graduate in December with an education specialist degree from UNK.
