His hiring will fill the void left by Pete Flood, who resigned from the head coaching position with the Eagles after six years on the job.
The younger generation of Sunflower League players and fans may not remember just how dominant Wier was at Olathe North--in fact, nine seasons have passed since Wier last graced the league in 2002--but his status as a coaching legend in Kansas still stands tall.
Wier spent 22 seasons as Olathe North's head coach, starting in 1981 and going until 2002. During that time he compiled a 188-36 record, winning six state championships.
Wier left Olathe North following the 2002 season to take over the head coaching duties at Richland High School in Richland, Texas, where he's spent the past nine seasons. He also doubled as the athletic director at Richland.
Wier's current coaching tree includes head coaches Tim Callaghan of SM West, Ryan Lonergan of SM South and John McCall of Blue Valley North. All three were coaches on Wier's staff in 2002 when Olathe North went 13-0 winning its third-straight 6A title.
