LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette Jeff High School announced Wednesday afternoon that Nate Kelsey has been named the new boys' varsity soccer coach.
Kelsey replaces Tim Hollendonner, who resigned last month to take an administrative position in Centerville, IN.
Kelsey will be taking the position on a one year interim basis for the 2013 season.
Kelsey is a 2004 graduate of Jefferson high school and played four years for Coach Mel Biss. He has been coaching youth club soccer off and on over the last 10 years. Kelsey is a 2008 graduate of Purdue University with a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical engineering.
Kelsey most recently worked at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH. He is currently completing a second degree in physics at Purdue University. He will be attending graduate school in the fall of 2014 to work on his PhD in Physics.
"Having played in the Broncho program, under coach Biss, Nate understands the Broncho soccer tradition and the small things that are necessary in continuing to build a successful program," said Lafayette Jeff athletic director Mark Preston.
"Due to the timing of Coach Hollendonner's resignation, the one year interim situation will allow us to better assess what teaching openings we will have in the future and to attract a larger group of applicants," said Preston.
