The Glendale School Board voted to open up the head coach and assistant coach positions for women’s basketball at its meeting on Tuesday night after the topic was put on the agenda by the athletic committee.
Brian Kuhn recently completed his first year as head coach and led the Lady Vikings to a 14-11 record and victory over Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic in the Class 1A District 6 playoffs which eliminated the defending Lady Marauders playoff champion. Glendale then lost to PIAA semi-finalist Williamsburg in the District 6 semi-final and Bishop Carroll Catholic in the consolation match.
Glendale athletic director John Matchock did not return phone calls seeking comment Tuesday or Wednesday night, and neither did Kuhn.
The board voted 6-3 to open the position but allows Kuhn to reapply.
Despite losing two seniors at graduation, Glendale is set to return the majority of his playing rotation for next season’s side, and Kuhn told the Mirror after the Lady Vikings’ loss to Carroll he was looking forward to it. to help the team improve this summer.
Kuhn has two daughters and a foster child who will enter their senior seasons next year. He took over from Beth Campbell, who resigned and served as an assistant coach at Great Commission last year, coaching her daughter, Kyla Campbell, who also transferred from Glendale to Great Commission for her senior season.
