West Salem, WI (WXOW) - A pair of head coaches officially took over the football and basketball programs at West Salem High School Monday night.

Justin Jehn was named the head football coach while Jake Merrill was named the head basketball coach.

Jehn had been the longtime assistant of Wayne Sackett, who departed the school to become an assistant principal at Holmen High School.

Merrill, a teacher at West Salem, comes from the Onalaska basketball program. He replaces Chad Hayes.

Jehn's term as football head coach coincides with the school's first season as a member of the Mississippi Valley Conference. The football team is the only sport not participating in the Coulee Conference.
