Kuchta Takes Girls BB Job at Seymour
Issue Date: July 6, 2016
Peshtigo High School girls basketball coach Bobby Kuchta announced he has accepted a physical education teaching position at his alma mater, Seymour High School. He will also be the varsity girls basketball coach.
Kuchta graduated from Seymour in 2004 and was in Peshtigo for seven years teaching elementary physical education and five years coaching the varsity girls basketball program. He also coached middle school football for five years, freshman boys basketball for two years, and spent five years assisting with the summer strength, speed, and conditioning program.
During his five year reign as girls basketball coach, the Lady Bulldogs went 75-5 in 80 conference games. They won four straight M&O Conference championships and 38 consecutive conference games. He had a record of 91 wins and 27 losses overall.
"There are so many great people, students, and families which made leaving Peshtigo an extremely difficult decision and I will certainly miss it here," Kuchta said.
"I have made a lot of excellent friends and gained valuable experiences from many of my colleagues that made me become a better teacher, coach, person, husband and father," he continued. "I have been fortunate to start my career here and thank everyone that has been a part of my life in Peshtigo. I will continue to support and follow Peshtigo and I will always have some Bulldog in me," he stated.
Kuchta has submitted his letter of resignation, and Peshtigo School District has already posted for his position. Peshtigo Athletic Director Bill Wickman said the move was a "done deal" and said of Kuchta, "I worked with him for four years and he has done a wonderful job. He will be missed."
