PORT ORCHARD — South Kitsap High School head coach Gavin Kralik, who has directed the Wolves’ football fortunes since March 2015, has resigned.
Kralik announced his resignation on March 30. His teams finished both the 2015 and 2016 seasons with records of 2-8.
Prior to his time in South Kitsap, Kralik had a successful coaching career at Bethel High School from 2005 to 2013, where he compiled an overall record of 50-42. He also coached a successful team at a private school in Texas.
“I understand that while I have a plan for addressing the needs of the program, the next coach will have a different plan and that might be a better match moving forward,” Kralik stated in his letter of resignation.
South Kitsap School District will post the vacant head football coaching position in the near future, according to school district officials. Internal and external applicants are encouraged to apply.
The new coach will be selected as soon as possible, the officials said, and will be involved in the selection and training of the 2017-18 team.
“I have a deep respect for Gavin, and I know he did not arrive at this decision lightly,” Superintendent Karst Brandsma said. “I respect him as a coach, valuable staff member, husband and father, and I wish him all the best in the future.”
