Kingswood hires head coach

Kingswood Regional didn’t have to look long or hard to find its next varsity football coach.

Tom McCullough, a longtime assistant coach with the Kingswood program, was hired last week to replace former head coach Paul Landry, who is now an assistant coach at Plymouth State.

McCullough, 58, is a Wolfeboro resident who graduated from Kingswood in 1982.

“Ever since I graduated from Kingswood it was like a dream job, something on my Bucket List,” McCullough said. “I’ve invested a lot of time (in youth football) over the last 10 years. I just want to give the kids a good experience.”

Kingswood was allowed to drop from Division II to Division III following the 2021 season. Per NHIAA rules, the Knights will not be allowed to make the playoffs next season because they are competing in a division below where the school’s enrollment places the program.

McCullough, who teaches at Kingswood Regional Middle School, said he expects the number of players who participate in the program to rise over the next few seasons.

“The victories have been evading us for a long time, but being a Kingswood guy … I think that’s an advantage for me,” McCullough said. ‘I think the program needs to be presented in a better light for these kids.”
