Central Community College athletics has announced the appointment of Warren Kuhl as head coach of the men’s golf team.
Kuhl served as the assistant coach of the team in fall 2019 and succeeds Joe “Britt” Blackwell, who stepped down to focus on his role as accounting instructor at CCC-Columbus.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank Coach Blackwell for the time and years he has devoted to our golf program and wish him well,” said CCC athletic director Mary Young. “We are excited to have Coach Kuhl on staff as our head golf coach. He has great energy and enthusiasm and his experience of working with student-athletes at the collegiate level will be a tremendous asset to our golf program.”
Kuhl possesses a wealth of collegiate head coaching experience. Most recently, he skippered the women’s golf program at Midland University from 2010 to 2018. In his first season, Midland qualified for the NAIA national tournament.
From 2004 to 2010, Kuhl served as the head women’s golf coach at Dana College in Blair. There, he also led the Vikings to the NAIA national tournament.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to coach at CCC,” said Kuhl. “Having been involved with the team last fall, I know the players coming back. That will be a plus. Coach Blackwell did a great job and I hope I can keep it going.”
Kuhl is a retired high school educator who spent 38 years as a teacher, counselor and administrator at schools in Nebraska and Iowa.
A two-time graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Kuhl earned bachelor of business education and master of educational psychology degrees.
Kuhl and his wife, Diana, are the parents of two adult children.
