Wier back where it all began

Gene Wier isn’t a towering man and doesn’t cut a particularly imposing figure. He’s around 6 feet tall with a medium build, but among football coaches in metropolitan Kansas City, Wier is an absolute giant. The architect of the Olathe North football dynasty, there was a time Wier couldn’t go anywhere in Olathe without fawning well-wishers scrambling for a handshake and eager to share what Eagles football meant in their lives. Truth is, now that Wier has returned to the Eagles after a nine-year hiatus, he still can’t walk through Walmart without being stopped for some gridiron gab.
