SCOTT CITY — Former McPherson College football standout Glenn O’Neil, who has established powerhouse football and boys basketball programs at Scott City, has resigned his positions to take the head football coaching job at Topeka Seaman.
O’Neil, 54, informed his team of his decision on Wednesday, according to numerous media reports. He will finish out the 2015-16 school year.
O’Neil, a defensive back for the Bulldogs back in the early 1980s, led the Beavers to five state basketball championships in 20 years and coached Wichita State’s Ron Baker. In football, Scott City was a state champion in 2012.
His basketball record is 356-108, while he finished 97-14 in his nine football season. His son, Trey, is a freshman on the Fort Hays State basketball team. O’Neil now will be able to watch his son play more now that he won’t be coaching basketball.
