Day has spent the past four seasons in the athletic director role at Colmesneil High School where he posted an 18-21 record, leading the Bulldogs to the playoffs in 2022 where they lost their bi-district game by one point.
“There were two big things that really attracted us to look into the Carlisle job,” Day said. “First the location was a factor; Carlisle is much closer to my wife’s family, and with young children, that’s really important and helpful.
“The track record of success is very attractive and its sustained success. Carlisle’s been good for 20 years. It’s not like a good class or two has come through, they’ve maintained a high level of success.”
Prior to Colmesneil, Day spent three seasons as the head coach at West Hardin where Day got the Oilers to a 4-6 mark in his final season after winning just one game in his first two seasons combined.
“Colmesneil was unbelievable,” Day said. “I can’t thank the kids enough. “They worked their tails off and totally bought in and the community and administration has been great. I can’t thank them enough.”
As an assistant coach, Day worked for three seasons as the defensive coordinator at Frankston. Prior to Frankston, he spent three seasons on staff at Normangee.
“The interview process was great,” he said. “I was very comfortable with the committee. You can tell they’ve been successful just from how they operate and how they go about their business.”
