Highlands High School hires Kevin Listerman as boys basketball coach

Familiar face in N.Ky. basketball

FORT THOMAS - Highlands High School has hired a familiar face in Northern Kentucky basketball to coach its boys team.

Kevin Listerman takes the job after a stint as an assistant coach at Colerain High School in Cincinnati. But Listerman was bred on basketball in the Bluegrass.

He starred at Covington Catholic and Northern Kentucky University, got his first head coaching job at Bellevue in 2002 and led Boone County to the Ninth Region finals in 2004. He also was an assistant at CovCath and NKU.

Listerman has been the head coach of a minor league basketball team in the Kentucky Basketball Developmental League (KBDL), where he was named coach of the year in 2008.

Listerman will also teach biology at Highlands. He has taught science for more than nine years at the secondary  level.

"Kevin has made a tremendous, positive impact on every school that he has been associated with as a player, teacher and coach," said athletic director Dale Mueller. "He is a man of outstanding character and a great role model for young people."

"I am very excited to continue the tradition of excellence, both academically and athletically, at Highlands,"  Listerman said.

Listerman succeeds Mike Flynn, who stepped down from the position.
