Elk Mound High School has announced the hiring of Michael Kessler as the new head coach to lead the boys’ basketball program.
Coach Kessler replaces Chris Hahn, who stepped down earlier this year to become principal of Elk Mound Middle School.
Coach Kessler, an Onalaska native and a graduate of St. John’s University (MN), has served as an assistant boys’ basketball coach at Eau Claire Memorial High School for the past four years.
According to Coach Kessler he is, “Extremely excited to be a part of not only the Elk Mound basketball program, but also the Elk Mound School District and community. I can’t wait to get into the gym and work with the young men!” Kessler also assisted the Memorial football and baseball programs and was the head girls’ basketball coach at Redwood Falls High School (MN) from 2010-2012.
Coach Kessler will teach Social Studies at Elk Mound Middle School.
