Wier Approved as Olathe North Head Coach

Gene Wier returns as head coach
to the school where he won six
Class 6A state championships.
After spending nine seasons away from Olathe North Gene Wier is returning to the program that he molded into one of the state's elite in the mid-1990s.

The Olathe School District Education Board approved Olathe North's plans to hire Wier as the new head football coach in place of former head coach Pete Flood, who resigned in November to spend more time with his family.

When Wier left Olathe North following the 2002 season, the Eagles were on a 38-game winning streak and had won three-straight 6A state championships, not to mention six of the past seven dating back to 1996.

The Olathe North team Wier inherits in 2012 is high in talent--and question marks.  This past season the Eagles began 5-0 before losing four straight games to close out the season, missing the playoffs.

The program also graduated the majority of their star power including players like Tanner Gentry, Orange Mooney, Treshawn Root and Jordan Bruce

Save the hiccup in 2011, Olathe North has had more success than any Sunflower League team in recent years.  They went 13-0 winning the 6A title in 2009, and finished as the 6A Runner-Up in 2010 going 11-2.

Are you going to post college signings again this year?

With Coach Wier back in SF League, it's gonna make it tough on all the other teams again. Not looking forward to that.
But with that bein said, it's great to see him back. The way he truly cares about the boys not just as players but as young men, it is nice to see in this time of win at all cost. He reminds me as the Bill Snyder of high school football. Welcome home Coach!! Take is easy on the rest of us teams>

Apparently, while Faerber verbally committed, he hasn't officially signed yet.

"Actually Illinois changed his offer to a grey shirt, so he decided to look elsewhere. Fritz said in his blog that he had talked with his father, and that he probably wont make a decision until later."

I see that Faerber has video posted on youtube of a local combine workout that he did early in March.

Any word yet if he will be playing college football?
