Williams re-named head coach at Salina

SALINA, OK — Matt Williams couldn't stay away from the field for too long.

Williams, the Salina offensive coordinator for the past two seasons under Kyle Fowler, was promoted to head football coach at the Salina school board meeting Monday night.

This will be Williams' second stint as the Wildcat skipper after forging a 28-8 record in his first tenure from 2009-2011. Williams went into sporting goods sales for a year before rejoining the Salina staff.

Fowler, who will remain the school's athletic director, stepped down as head coach after being named the high school principal in April.

Head boys basketball coach Luke Folkerts tendered his resignation at the Monday meeting as well. Folkerts has accepted an assistant coaching job in Muldrow to be closer to his and his wife's family.

The board approved the hiring of two assistant football coaches: Chris Osborn and Justin Kindle.
