After just one season at Oakhaven, Edward Kuykendoll has been hired as the new head football at Sheffield.
He replaces Jerel Blanchard who resigned after three seasons at Sheffield which accumulated in a 2-28 record during his tenure.
“My time at Oakhaven High School was amazing and I built a strong relationship with every student-athlete that ever played for me. My goal was to turn young men into productive citizens in the real world and I believe I did that,” Kuykendoll said.
“Building relationships is big to me and I will forever have a place in my heart for Oakhaven. With that being said, I’m very excited about what God has place in front of me as the new head football coach at Sheffield High School.”
The Knights are coming off back to back 1-9 seasons but they will enter the 2019 season on a one game winning streak as they defeated MLK Prep 14-8 in the regular season finale.
Before being named the head coach at Oakhaven, Kuykendoll was the Hawks defensive coordinator for three seasons (2015-17).
Before coming to Oakhaven, Kuykendoll, 33, was an assistant coach at Fairley for five seasons (2010-14) including the last four years as the defensive coordinator.
Kuykendoll will try to get Sheffield back to the playoffs something they haven’t made since making the Class 4A playoffs back in 2012.
There are currently six programs looking for a head coach they are: Dresden, Glencliff, Hardin Valley, Midway, Oakhaven and RePublic
