Bo Black, who has spent the last 13 years as the head football and track and field coach at Great Bend High School, will take over the same duties at Hays High School beginning in the summer.

The decision was announced Tuesday morning, pending Hays USD 489 Board of Education approval at the March 10 meeting.
Black was one of six people interviewed for the position out of approximately 30 applicants.

“My wife Stefanie, daughter Hannah, and son Ty, are looking forward to the start of our next chapter in Hays,” Black said in a press release from HHS. “Our family is eager to be a part of all that the community has to offer and I am looking forward to meeting and working with the staff and students of Hays High. We will miss Great Bend, and all of the friends and memories we have made there the past 13 years. I am looking forward to coming and continuing the success of the current program Hays has built.”

Black will replace Ryan Cornelsen, who announced his resignation in January after accepting the head football coach position at Hutchinson High School. Cornelsen was 35-12 in five seasons at Hays High.

Black is a native of Elkhart, Texas, and graduate of Emporia State University, where he played football. While at Great Bend, Black led the football program to eight playoff appearances and eight Western Athletic Conference championships, going 83-47. His best season came in 2006, when Great Bend went 11-2 and lost 34-3 to Blue Valley in the Class 5A state championship game. He was 9-4 in games against HHS, 1-4 in the last five seasons.

Black also won a state championship in girls’ track and field in 2007.

“Obviously, he’s been successful at the 5A level and what we were really impressed with is how he relates to kids and we really believe he is good for students and good for kids,” Hays High Athletic Director Clint Albers said. “In talking to many of his past players and people he has come into contact with he is a quality individual that is a good person and we trust to be around our kids and our students here at Hays High and that’s what we were looking for.”

Prior to coming to Great Bend, Black spent five years at Lancaster High School in Lancaster, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, where he was an assistant coach and offensive coordinator.

Great Bend went 4-5 in the fall under Black, including a 47-14 loss to Hays High in district play. Great Bend’s best victory came 28-25 over WAC champion Garden City, which advanced to the Class 6A state semifinals before losing to eventual state champion Derby.

Black was scheduled to meet with HHS players this afternoon.
