Clark Montessori Adds Minor


Clark Montessori head football coach Joe Berta will add more experience to his staff that already includes his father, Bob Berta (the first head coach at Turpin High School).

Former Reading High and Wilmington College head coach Ken Minor has signed on as offensive coordinator .

Minor was a four-year starter at tight end for Wilmington College and was an NAIA honorable mention All-America selection in 1971. His coaching career began as an assistant to former Wilmington College head coach Bill Ramseyer in 1972.

Minor spent the ensuing 37 years coaching high school football in Cincinnati. He was an assistant coach for six seasons at Reading High School before being named head coach in 1979. He led the Blue Devils to four league championships and six appearances in the state playoffs. His 2000 squad advanced to the state semifinals.

In 27 seasons as head coach at Reading, Minor compiled a 170-129-1 record. He was a two-time district coach of the year and was named Cincinnati Hills League Coach of the Year four times.

After spending the 2008 season as offensive coordinator at North College Hill High School, Minor was named head coach at Summit Country Day High School. In 2009, he led the Silver Knights to a 5-5 mark, their best record in the past eight seasons.

Minor has been the head coach at Wilmington College the past three years.

“We are very excited to have Ken on staff at Clark,” Joe Berta said. “He will bring a efficient, balanced offensive attack to a team looking to compete for its first playoff spot in school history. His football knowledge and leadership will play a very important role in our success for the 2013 season.”
