Nixa Public Schools has announced High School Head Football Coach Rich Rehagen is retiring from the position.

Rehagen served as head coach of the Eagles for 11 seasons.

Prior to his head coaching position, Rehagen worked for Nixa as an assistant coach for 14 years.

During his tenure at head coach, Rehagen finished with an overall record of 80-57, becoming the winningest coach in Nixa’s football program.
