Emporia School Coach Departs After Two Football Seasons

Emporia High School’s head football coach has stepped down after two seasons at the helm, pursuing a new opportunity in college coaching. Keaton Tuttle, who took over as interim head coach in October 2020 and was officially named head coach in February 2021, has resigned to follow his dream of becoming an assistant college coach.

The decision to leave was a difficult one for Coach Tuttle, and as of March 29, Emporia High School is now in search of a new football coach to lead their team.

Prior to becoming head coach, Tuttle served as the Spartans’ offensive line coach for approximately five seasons, according to KVOE. Emporia High’s Athletic Director, Beau Welch, acknowledged the team is losing a great individual but emphasized that the search for a new head coach is already underway. The aim is to hire a suitable candidate by May.
