New Capital Football Coach Mihelish Excited to Start

Posted: Updated:
HELENA - After 19 years as an assistant coach, including the past seven with the Capital Bruins, Kyle Mihelish finally has his own head coaching gig as he was named the head coach of the Capital Bruins this past Friday. Mihelish knows he has some big shoes to fill in Pat Murphy who leaves after 11 years and four state championships, and really turned Capital into a premier program in Montana.

"Those are daunting shoes to fill," said Mihelish. "Going all the way back to the 1970's when Capital started you had guys like Jim Tuss, and Walt Chancy, and Mark Sampson. It is a challenge and I'm looking forward to it."

Mihelish will have to live up to those names before him quickly. Last season the Bruins suffered through a one win season, leaving many to wonder what coach Mihelish will do to turn it around.

"We're going to kind of play to our personnel, and what we have as a group of kids at the varsity level," said Mihelish. "We're going to adapt and do those kinds of things. One think I've always heard from all the great coaches is that you feed the studs, and we've got to get them the ball."

Coach Mihelish will remain in charge of the defense, and they're still looking for about two assistant coaches to add to his varsity staff, but not a lot of changes to the Bruins coaching staff overall. And of course it's a very exciting time for Bruin football.
