|Ex-Olathe North Head|
Coach Pete Flood.
Flood had spent the last six seasons as the head coach at Olathe North. During that time, he compiled a 51-16 record, highlighted by a 6A state championship in 2009. The Eagles also made it to the state title game in 2010, but lost to Wichita Heights.
Flood was widely credited for returning the Olathe North football program to dominance after several average seasons that followed Gene Wier and John McCall's departures from the school in 2002 and 2004, respectively.
Flood also helped to develop a bevy of players who went on to the Division One ranks, including Kevin Young, Lucas Vincent, Tre Walker, Victor Simmons and Adonis Saunders, not to mention a Simone Award winner in James Franklin.
