Kevin Wallace, one of the state's most successful coaches, has been named the 19th head football coach at Saint Xavier High School.
"We are excited to have Kevin Wallace join our St. X community as the new head coach of the Tiger football program. Kevin has a great track record as one of Kentucky's premier high school football coaches. More importantly, he is a proven leader of the young men he has coached. We look forward to his continued success in both of these areas in our school" – Alan Donhoff, Athletic Director
Wallace comes to St. X from Bowling Green High School, where he compiled a 254-41 record (.861 winning percentage), including Kentucky's second-longest win streak of 48 games from the 2011-2014 seasons. During his tenure, the Purples have captured five state championships ('11. '12, '13, '15, '16), appeared in eight championship games, and have won 10 regional titles.
"I am excited to become a part of the St. X family. Very few schools have reached the standard of excellence that St. X produces on a yearly basis. To be entrusted to lead the St. X football program is a great responsibility. I look forward to earning the respect of our players, coaches, teachers, administrators, and supporters as I become a part of the best academic and athletic tradition in Kentucky." – Kevin Wallace
Wallace will enter the 2018 season with the 11th most career KHSAA coaching wins.
