Bishop Ireton High School has hired Kevin Spivey as the new varsity head wrestling coach. Previously, Spivey served as the assistant wrestling coach and had worked with the previous three wrestling head coaches.

“Coach Spivey impressed me in our first conversation about the position,” said Athletic Director Bryce Bevill. “When you look at the qualities of a head coach, you want some with experience, knowledge of the program and someone that can put together a great staff that can add to our athletic community. Coach Spivey checked all our boxes. It truly a blessing to have a coach on staff prepared to lead our wrestling program. Coach Spivey embraced our holistic approach to Bishop Ireton Athletics.”

Spivey has been with the school as a coach since 1996, and attended Bishop Ireton as a student from 1991-1996 before assuming a coaching role on the wrestling team.
