Elkhart High School boys varsity basketball coach resigns

ELKHART, Ind. - Kyle Sears, head coach of the Elkhart High School boys varsity basketball team, has resigned from his position after 15 years, according to Elkhart Community Schools.  

Sears served as head coach for both Elkhart and former Elkhart Memorial high schools for nine years and served as assistant coach for six years.

During his time as head coach, Sears led the Lions to a Sectional Championship win in 2021 and the Elkhart Memorial Crimson Chargers to a Sectional Championship win in 2018.

Sears led the boys team to a 26-45 record in three seasons at Elkhart High, and a 99-115 overall record factoring in his time with Elkhart Memorial.

“I am grateful for the time that I’ve had as an Elkhart basketball coach, both as an assistant and head coach, and I wish Elkhart basketball nothing but success in the future! I thank the coaches, families, and the many student-athletes that I’ve had the privilege of coaching over the last 15 years. And most of all, I thank my family for all their constant support,” says Sears.

“Kyle is a man of high character, who has always represented Elkhart Athletics in the highest degree of class and dignity,” said Elkhart High School Principal Cary Anderson.

Elkhart Athletics will post and accept applications for Sears' successor through the Elkhart Community Schools Human Resources Department.
