Northwestern names new head football coach

From Rock Hill School District:

Northwestern High School in Rock Hill has announced Kyle Richardson as its new football coach. Kyle has been interim head coach after Jimmy “Moose” Wallace announced his retirement back on April 29th after 31 years of coaching.

Coach Richardson has been the Trojan’s offensive coordinator for the past four seasons after coming to Northwestern from stints at North Gwinnett High School in 2003-05 as their offensive coordinator and Southeastern Louisiana University from 2005-07 as their wide receiver coach.

Famous for the “Air Raid” offense, Coach Richardson’s offenses have re-written the state record books as he has led Northwestern to three straight state championship appearances and a perfect 15-0 season this past year.

The former quarterback at South Point High School in Belmont, NC has also served as quarterback coach for the Trojans the last four years including coaching the Gatorade National Player of the Year and Tennessee signee Justin Worley and former Furman signee Will King.

Richardson’s offenses have averaged 40+ points per game in his four seasons as offensive coordinator and his quarterbacks have averaged over 4000 yards passing per year. Coach Richardson’s duties will begin immediately as he prepares for the upcoming season.

Kyle Richardson is a graduate of Appalachian State University and will finish his masters degree this summer from California University. He is married to Kelli Gates Richardson and has two wonderful girls, four-year old Lexi Grace and Presley Ann who was born this past week.
