Kuna High boys athletic director Dave Beymer confirmed to the Idaho Statesman on Wednesday afternoon that Lee Leslie has been hired as the school's next varsity football coach.
Leslie replaces Rusty Frisch, who resigned in January after two seasons at the helm and an overall record of 2-16.
"I just spent my first year out of football since 1967. I wanted a challenge and a bunch of hungry kids to teach football, and I found them," Leslie said in a press release. "Kuna is a great community, and I am excited to become a Kaveman."
Leslie previously coached the Bishop Kelly High football team for two seasons, winning the 4A state championship in 2010. Under Leslie, the Knights went 20-2 with two unbeaten 4A Southern Idaho Conference seasons and two academic state championships. In 2010, the freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams posted a combined record of 29-1.
Before his stint at BK, Leslie had coached the Boise Burn. He has nearly 30 years of experience coaching in the high school, college and professional ranks.
"I am confident that Coach Leslie's leadership will continue to improve the quality of our football program," Beymer said.
