The Kings Board of Education approved Nick Molz, current Wilmington High School Men’s Varsity Assistant Coach, to be the next Men’s Varsity Basketball Head Coach for the 2016-2017 school year. Nick is a graduate of Kettering Fairmont High School in 2007, where he played basketball for the Firebirds. After high school, Nick began his college career at Capital University where he played for the Crusaders for two years before earning a bachelor’s degree in Social Science Education from Wright State University in 2012. He also completed his master’s degree at Wright State University in Integrated Social Studies Education in 2013.

Nick has coached 8th grade basketball in Kettering and was head freshman coach at Centerville High School. After serving Centerville, he joined the coaching staff at Wilmington High School from 2014-2016. While at Wilmington, the basketball team had a combined record of 51-4, went undefeated in the South Central Ohio League, and made a run to the Division 1 Final Four this past season. Molz was instrumental in the Hurricaines’ success and deep run in the OHSAA Division 1 Tournament.

After the 2014-2015 season, Nick was voted District 15 Assistant Coach of the Year. Molz looks to bring the success from Centerville and Wilmington to his own program at Kings.

Nick will be entering his 4th year of teaching when he arrives at Kings to teach for the 2016-2017 school year.  Nick and his wife Erin reside in Mason, where they have a German Shorthaired Pointer named Lewis, and are expecting a baby girl in May.  Outside of basketball Nick enjoys reading, fishing, travelling, and watching sports.  His goal in coaching is to have a positive and lasting impact on the lives of his players.

You can meet Coach Molz next Wednesday, April 27 at 6:00 p.m. in the KHS Gym at the “Meet the Coach Night.”
