Jim Trahern has decided to step down from coaching at Kit Carson. Â The long-time boss made the announcement to the administration and his players earlier this week.
Trahern led the Wildcats for the past 35 years and made numerous state tournament appearances including this season. Â Kit Carson ended up third after falling to eventual state champion Holly in the semifinals in the triple overtime. Â State championships were collected in 2007 (beat Hi Plains 58-36) and 2004 (Beat Eads 59-44).
Both of Trahern’s sons are in the high school coaching profession as well with Jake at Burlington and Ty at Fort Morgan high schools. Â Several formers players are also coaching at this point including Randy Wilson at Wiley and Shawn Randel at Akron among others.
