Chiefs Announce High School Coaches of the Year
The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that Fort Osage head coach Ryan Schartz and Bishop Miege High School’s head coach Tim Grunhard have been named the Missouri and Kansas High School Coaches of the Year, respectively.
Schartz directed Fort Osage to a 13-1 record and a berth in the Missouri Class 5 State Championship game. Grunhard led Bishop Miege to claim the Kansas 4A state championship over Topeka Hayden last Saturday. Bishop Miege finished the season with a 12-2 record.
The 2009 High School Coach of the Year program is a joint initiative of the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chiefs Ambassadors and the National Football League. Supported locally by the U.S. Army, this program is designed to recognize and reward Kansas City area high school coaches for superior performance throughout the year.
A Chiefs Ambassador and a U.S. Army representative will be on hand at each presentation to honor the recipient. All media members are invited to attend each special tribute to honor these individuals who are shaping today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders.
