Oakley's Rath to take over as coach at Cimarron

Randall Rath said Cimarron High School wasn't on his radar when he started applying for jobs after he resigned as Oakley's head football coach, girls' basketball and track coach last fall. Cimarron, though, called Rath, who went down for an interview and accepted the head football job last Monday.

Cimarron has strong girls' sports, especially basketball. Rath's youngest of three daughters, Marlee, currently is a junior and a three-year starting point guard for Oakley. Rath said Marlee is excited about playing for one of Class 3A's top programs. The Bluejays were ranked No. 4 in the final girls' basketball coaches' poll.

Veteran coach David Ediger has won at least 19 contests in five of the last seven years.

"What is real enticing about it is they've got really good girls' programs, and it would be a good place for my daughter," Rath said Friday night.

Rath has coached the girls' basketball team since 1992 and was the head football coach the last 16 years. The Plainsmen girls' basketball team was scheduled to play Ellis in the Class 2A Oberlin sub-state Saturday night. Rath was 125-53 as head coach and served 24 years with the program. Cimarron finished 4-5 last fall and went 21-35 under previous coach Doug Minneman.

"It's hard," Rath said. "We are going to miss this community, and the people here and the kids. It's been hard for me at school the last about two weeks. I am going to miss these kids a lot, and the coaches that I have coached with here. Since I have been here, they have been really good people. That's been tough."

Oakley also announced the hiring of Ty Pfannenstiel, an assistant at Gardner-Edgerton as new football coach.
