Former Wolfson head coach, Plant assistant Meyer joins Leto staff

Leto football coach Matt Kitchie added another impressive name to his staff this week with the addition of former Jackonville Wolfson head coach and former Plant assistant Greg Meyer.

The 34-year-old Meyer will serve as Kitchie’s defensive coordinator. He joins another former Plant assistant, Mo Harris, who was hired as running backs coach two weeks ago. Harris was offensive coordinator for Tampa Bay Tech last season.

“I’m not going to hide the fact I want what Plant has. We want to win a state championship at Leto,” Kitchie said. “With guys like Greg and Mo here, I’m hoping a little of that magic coach Weiner has developed at Plant will rub off over here.”

Meyer was Wolfson’s head coach the last two seasons, where he compiled a record of 5-15. Kitchie said Meyer wanted to return to his native Tampa area for family reasons and has already landed a teaching position at Leto. Meyer, a former tight end and center for Plant, was a junior varsity defensive line coach and varsity assistant under Panthers head coach Robert Weiner during the Panthers’ 2006 and 2008 championship season.

“The best part of this is that our kids are going to benefit tremendously from Greg and Mo. They’re great teachers and great people and I’m very fortunate to have them coming on board here.”
