Todd Ekart, regarded as one of the top football coaches in the area, is the new head football coach at Gering High School.

Ekart brings a great amount of experience and success to the Gering program. Most recently he served as the head football coach of the Sidney Red Raiders. In four years as the head coach of Sidney he has transformed a 0-9 team into a two-time state qualifying team. He also directed the strength program at Sidney High School.

Previous to the head position at Sidney, Ekart was the defensive coordinator at Beatrice High School. During his tenure at Beatrice he coached teams that reached the state playoffs three times and were state runner-up in 2008. He was also the defensive coordinator at Gothenburg High School, where they reached the state playoffs the two years he coached there.

While Ekart has coached many successful teams, he is also an excellent instructor. He will be serving as a Social Science instructor for the Gering School district.
