MAXWELL, NE — Maxwell High School has made it official who will be the next leader of its football program. 

Maxwell Public Schools Activities Director Ryan Jones announced Wednesday Eamonn Feeney will be the next head football coach at the district. Feeney is a 2008 graduate of Maxwell High School. 

Feeney replaces Jones as head football coach in Maxwell. He has previously coached and taught at Minden and Wilber-Clatonia.

“I am extremely excited to be announced as the head football coach at Maxwell High School," Feeney said in a statement. "To take over the program that I grew up respecting, watching and eventually playing for is a huge honor. I’d like to thank Coach Jones and the administration at Maxwell for trusting me with this opportunity and I can’t wait to get started."

Eamonn's wife Hope Feeney has also accepted a teaching position at Maxwell Public Schools. Hope recently announced she is resigning from her position as President and CEO of the Cheyenne County Chamber as a result.
