Football Coach Hurt In Crash

KSAL StaffAugust 4, 2014

The coach of three Kansas state championship football teams was hurt early Sunday in a motorcycle crash.

Osborne County Sheriff Kurt Miner says Steve Tiernan was four miles west of Tipton on Highway 181 when he crashed early Sunday morning. He was not wearing a helmet.

Miner said Tiernan was stabilised at Osborne County Hospital and then flown to a hospital in Wichita. The sheriff said he’s unaware of the extent of the injuries.

Miner said Tiernan’s a “pretty popular” guy around Osborne for the way he turned around the football team.

Tiernan won last year’s 8-Man Division One championship with Osborne. Before that he won two state championships in 8-Man football with Baileyville B&B in 2008 and 2010.
