Hays High has their new boys basketball coach. Sean Dreiling is the new coach following approval at Monday night's USD 489 Board of Education Meeting.
Dreiling had recently accepted a teaching and assistant basketball coaching position at the school. That transpired prior to former coach Alex Hutchins discussions with Washburn Rural which eventually led to Hutchins taking the head coaching job with the Junior Blues.
Dreiling spent six seasons as the head coach of Trego Community High School compiling a record of 68-62. The Golden Eagles when 19-5 this past season and 16-6 the year prior.
Coach Sean Dreiling
Dreiling hails from Estes Park, Colorado but has lived in Hays since attending Fort Hays State University on a basketball scholarship. He was a player for the Tigers from 2007 to 2012. He was on the basketball coaching staff from 2012 to 2016 and even served a season as the men's golf coach.
Dreiling already lives in Hays with his wife, who is a USD 489 teacher, and family.
The summer schedule put in place for the basketball team prior to the coaching change will stay the same.
