North Central hires CC’s Kevin O’Shea as head football coach

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After nearly a decades worth of success as Central Catholic head football coach, Kevin O’Shea is ready for a new challenge.

North Central hired O’Shea to the same position on Wednesday.

O’Shea will also serve as the school’s director of sports performance.

“Kevin O’Shea and his staff have built our football program to an elite level,” CC athletic director Tim Bordenet said in a statement released by the school. “The amount of success speaks for itself, but I am very grateful for the professionalism and high character that Kevin O’Shea has demonstrated within our football program and school community over the past nine years. He is not only an excellent coach but a first class individual that has helped to make Central Catholic a better place.”

O’Shea compiled a 114-10 record over nine years at CC, including five Class A state championships and four undefeated seasons.

O’Shea inherits a North Central program which finished 1-9 last season. The Panthers have failed to post a winning season since 2006.
