After a number of appointments in the last few months, Bishop Ireton has promoted its assistant wrestling coach to the top spot.

Kevin Spivey, a long-serving assistant coach with the wrestling team, is the new varsity head wrestling coach, the school announced in a news release on Monday. Spivey is a B.I. alum who graduated in 1996 and became a wrestling coach at the school the same year.

“Coach Spivey impressed me in our first conversation about the position. When you look at the qualities of a head coach, you want some experience, knowledge of our program and someone that can put together a great staff that can add to our athletic community. Coach Spivey checked all of our boxes,” Athletic Director Bryce Bevill said in a statement.

Bishop Ireton also recently appointed longtime T.C. basketball coach Kesha Walton as its head girls’ basketball coach.
