New OPH Football Head Coach Announced

(Undated) – Following last night’s Oblong Unit 4 School Board meeting OPH has a new football coach. The board officially accepted the resignation of Chad Pusey as Head Coach and hired Nick Straka as Pusey’s replacement. The fate of the upcoming fall sports season is still unsure amid the ongoing coronavirus restrictions. IHSA Executive Director, Craig Anderson, says they continue to work with the Illinois Department of Public Health to facilitate a safe return for players, coaches, and fans statewide. Anderson says he continues to hold out hope that fall sports athletes will be able to compete with minimal restrictions.
