HUTCHINSON — Hutchinson High football coach Ryan Cornelson will be leaving at the end of the school year, according to several media outlets today.

Cornelson is also the Salthawks’ track and field coach, having won the Class 6A boys title this past spring.

 Cornelson has been at Hutchinson the past four years, succeeding the legendary Randy Dreiling as football coach after he left for St. Thomas Aquinas. The Salthawks didn’t miss a beat in his first year, making the state title game.

According to the reports, Cornelson is leaving to take a job with another school. He can not divulge where he will be going.

“Hutch is a great place, we've really enjoyed it,” Cornelson told CatchItKansas today. “This is a decision that we felt was best for our family. We are really proud of what we were able to do. The kids worked hard at it and our coaches worked hard at it."
