O'Neill leaving as Olathe West football coach


TJ O’Neill, who built the Olathe West High football program from scratch into a state title contender, is stepping down as head coach. 

The school announced Wednesday that O’Neill is stepping down as the head coach of the Owls to spend more time with his family, after six years on the job. He has two young children, and the time demands of coaching high school football had limited the time for his family, according to West athletics director Pat Butler.
