Kevin Carey has been named head coach of the Quincy High School varsity football team. Carey, a defensive coordinator, succeeds Bill Reardon who resigned as head coach earlier this year.
Carey is no stranger to the Presidents gridiron program. A 1994 Quincy High School graduate, Carey played high school football and was inducted into the Quincy-North Quincy Football Hall of Fame in 2010. He played football collegiately at Fitchburg State where he graduated in 1999.
Carey has been employed in the Quincy Public School system for 18 years, most recently dean at Quincy High for the past eight years.
He started his high school football coaching career as a freshman coach for two years before moving on as a JV coach for eight years. For the past 10 years he was the defensive coordinator for the varsity program.
Carey and Quincy High School Athletic Director Kevin Mahoney will be working together to finalize his support staff in all levels, Mahoney said Tuesday.
