Former Dallas Cowboys QB coach Jon Kitna named new Burleson HC

| |

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback coach Jon Kitna is making a return to the high school coaching ranks as the new head coach for Burleson High School.

Before joining the Dallas Cowboys, Kitna spent time in Arizona as a head coach, and he was once the head coach for Waxahachie.

Many around the NFL credit Kitna for his work in helping Dak Prescott have a career year in passing yards with 4,902.

Burleson will have the added benefit of everything Kitna brings, including his son Jalen Kitna, who is a high-profile recruit who decommitted from Boston College back in January amidst their coaching changes.

Together, Jon and Jalen will have their work cut out for them as they rebuild a program looking to stay consistently above the .500 mark. Previous head coach Gary McElory went just 44-42 during his tenure at BISD.

As a high school head coach, Kitnaโ€™s resume is impressive. In each stop, his teams have posted winning records, playoff appearances and produced top talent.

And he is already working toward doing the same at Burleson.

Kintaโ€™s track record as a high school HC:
Lincoln High School, Tacoma, Washington: final season – 11-1 (2014)
Waxahachie High School, Waxahachie, TX: overall record – 20-13 (2015-2017)
Brophy College Prep, Phoenix, AZ: final season – 7-3 (2018)
