Coach Kevin Kush

From the gridiron to the classroom, Coach Kush brings his fire for football to motivating key educators. With over two decades of leadership on the football field as the head coach at Boys Town High School, Coach Kush’s relentless pursuit of building character within at-risk youth led to the incredible record of 164-55. Now, he brings that same passion to equip teachers, school administrators, school board members and parents with strategies to help forge the minds of our next generation. Kush’s book “The 100-yard Classroom” presents these same strategies to help kids succeed in school, sports and life.

Coach Kush is also a leader in the classroom with 30 years of experience as an educator. This knowledge has helped him bring lessons from the school house to life in his second of three books, “A Piece of the Puzzle: Eight Traits of a Quality Teammate.” Essentially, training designed to better impact a staff’s ability to function as a team. Add up these accomplishments and it’s a no brainer why ABC News named Kevin Kush as a “Person of the Week.”

Coach Kush is brought to you by popular demand.  He is motivational, inspirational and has a message relevant to everyone.  He travels the globe sharing his expertise and leaving a lasting impression by everyone who hears him. As a former PLCS teacher himself, Kush's wife currently teaches in PLCS and both of his sons are graduates.
