Per sources from within the Olathe #233 School District, Olathe South has accepted the resignation of Football Coach Jeff Gourley.
Coach Jeff Gourley was named the fourth Head Coach in Falcons history in 2008. Prior to succeeding current Leavenworth Pioneers Head Coach Mark Littrell, Jeff Gourley spent eight (8) seasons with the Belton Pirates with a record of 45-41 in the Suburban League from 2000 to 2007.

During Jeff Gourley’s eight (8) seasons at Olathe South, the Falcons won the 2011 6A State Title defeating Wichita Heights 41-37. That season, the Falcons ended a three game losing streak at the State Finals. Leading that team was Braden Smith, who has gone on to NCAA Division 1 Football.
His resume with the Falcons includes a 5-2 record in the 6A playoffs, and a 30-21 record vs Sunflower opponents from 2008 to 2015. Jeff Gourley is 146-117, with a playoff record of 7-6 in 13 games.
