Franklin County snags Kennedy

By Greg Shoemaker | Featured Analyst

Long-time Hoosier high school football coach Kirk Kennedy has been named the new head coach at Franklin County. Kennedy started his career at Lowell where he compiled a 161-70 record including a Class 4A state title in 2009 during his 19 years at the school. He also led the program to the state title game in 2007 & 2009. In 2010 he left for the Bloomington South job where he went 4-26 in three seasons. Last fall Kennedy moved on to North Judson where his Blue Jays finished 3-8. Money problems in the school district led to promises of grandeur for the football program not being fulfilled so Kennedy decided to move on and take the job in Brookville.

Kennedy replaces Shane Wellman who went 9-13 in two seasons at Franklin County. He will become the school’s third head coach in the last four seasons. This will be Kennedy’s 24th year as a head coach in the state of Indiana. He is a 1982 graduate of Waynesville High School in Ohio and received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Louisville. From the Northwest corner to the Southeast corner of the state Kennedy and his family are looking forward to the move closer to his roots.
