Coach Ray in the Making?

Dave Wirth has been named as Covington Catholic's head football coach.

Wirth, who previously spent five seasons as the head coach at Hamilton Badin, returns to the school where he spent three seasons with the Colonels under Lynn Ray, the program's all-time winningest coach who led the Colonels to five state titles.

He takes over for Dave Brossart, who resigned in January after going 10-14 in two seasons.

Wirth, 33, went 27-25 at Badin, winning Greater Catholic League Central titles in 2006 and 2008. Last year he won 8 games, the most in Badin football's history.

He graduated from Moeller in 1993 and began coaching at his alma mater two years later. He spent six seasons with the Crusaders before coming to CovCath for the first time. He served as the Colonels' defensive coordinator in 2003.

Good luck coach.
