Brentwood head football coach, Keith Herring, has accepted the head coaching job at Westminster Christian Academy, in Town and Country. Tim Kuhn will return to Brentwood from Nashville, IL to coach the Eagles, it’s been reported.
Herring told West Magazine he’s excited about the new job. “I tell you what, it feels really good,” he said. “Everyone is very welcoming. Man, what a place Westminster is.” He said he’s been interested in the job since 2016.
Westminster’s current coach stepped down after one season to concentrate on his duties as principal.
Herring had a 58-11 record at Brentwood, where he’s been since 2011. He led the Eagles to playoff wins every season, including the Class 2 state semifinals. Brentwood went 11-2 last year, losing to eventual state champion Lamar in semifinals.
Tim Kuhn will take over at Brentwood, resigning from the Nashville Hornets where he’s been head coach since 2012. He went 2-7 in his first two seasons with the Hornets, then 17-7 in the next two. Last year Nashville finished with a 5-4 record, narrowly missing out on the playoffs, according to the Nashville News.
Kuhn told the Nashville News: “It was one of the toughest career decisions I’ve ever had to make, because, one how I value this place. Playing here, going to school here, my wife doing the same thing it was tough. I think at the end of it it was a great decision for my family. It’s closer in terms of proximity, I’ve coached there previously. Just being a more present husband, not that was an issue, but just being around will be a little more flexible in terms of my wife’s schedule.”
