“Kurt is an offensive genius,¬†and brings with him a tremendous amount of experience in coaching offense, quarterbacks, and special teams,” Curtis said Wednesday.

“Kurt will assist new Crean Lutheran High School offensive coordinator, Russ Oka, along with assisting me with the special teams on our staff.”
