ELIDA — Kyle Harmon will be the new Elida football coach, pending board approval at the Elida school board meeting tonight, according to a press release.
Harmon is a 2003 Elida graduate and has spent the past two seasons as the pass/outside run game coordinator at Wapakoneta High School. Prior to that, he was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Lima Senior High School. He was an assistant coach at Elida from 2005 through 2015, including a 2-0 stint as interim head coach during the 2015 season.
Harmon replaces Dan Lattimore, who served as the Bulldogs’ interim head coach the final seven games of the season. Lattimore took over after Bill Speller announced his resignation from the post on Sept. 26. Speller was placed on administrative leave Sept. 16 amid allegations of misconduct from several football players.
Elida finished the season 0-10.
Harmon teaches health and physical education at Elida High School. He and his wife, Maggie, reside in Elida with their son, Jack.
