Luers names Kyle Lindsay new football coach

Bishop Luers has a new football coach.

The school announced that Kyle Lindsay will take over the program Friday.

Luers fired former coach Matt Lindsay, Kyle Lindsay's father, during the season. Kyle Lindsay served as head coach for one game before Steve Keefer was named the interim head coach for the rest of the season.

The Knights became the first team to win four Class 2A state championships in a row with a 40-28 victory over Indianapolis Ritter on Nov. 23 in Lucas Oil Stadium. Luers has won 11 state titles in 15 finals appearances.

Kyle Lindsay remained the Knights' offensive coordinator when Keefer took over. Kyle Lindsay is a former Knights quarterback and graduated from Luers in 2002.

He is a teacher in Luers' social studies department.

Kyle Lindsay led Luers to a 27-7 win over Wayne on Sept. 14, but the school had to forfeit the win because of the use of an ineligible player.

The school said Matt Lindsay's employment was terminated during the season because of "violations of school and Diocesan policies, and his violations of his employment contract obligations."
