Coaching changes not just at college level.
Bob Fuller resigns at Plattsmouth high.The veteran coach is heading to Louisville High School to take over the football program there.
“It was a very, very difficult decision,” said Fuller. But he’s making the move with an eye on “the vision Louisville has with its new facilities.”
The Cassgram reports Fuller, who will continue to teach middle school social studies in the Plattsmouth Community Schools, will be head football coach, assistant track, assistant middle school boys and girls basketball coach and oversee the Lions’ summer weight program.
In compiling a career 246-125-1 record, Fuller has had two state champions (Farnam and Cambridge) and three state runner-up teams that includes Plattsmouth in 1979. He’s also coached several all-star games that include the Kansas Shrine Bowl and the Nebraska Shrine Bowl.
All total, Fuller coached the Blue Devils for 13 seasons, five years in his first stint that began with the 1979 team and then the last eight seasons.
Louisville is “very lucky” to have the experience of Coach Fuller guiding the football program, said LHS Activities Director Rob Geise. “His credentials speak for themselves.”
Louisville had advertised the open head football coaching position for several weeks but it was a somewhat different situation in that no teaching position went along with it. However, it turned out well with Fuller’s interest in the position, said Geise. “We want what is best for our student athletes and Bob is one of the best around.”
Now Plattsmouth is advertising on its website for a head football coach, said Plattsmouth Superintendent Dr. Richard Hasty.
