The man, the myth, the legend, Bernie Barre annonunced his retirement on Monday. A member of the OHSAA Coaching Hall of Fame, Barre paced the sidelines for 34 season compiling a 317-108 mark. He led Beechwood to the first of their 10 Kentucky state football titles in 1984. He coached the Tigers from 1975 until 1990 before returning to his alma mater, Wyoming, where he spent the last 21 years. The Cowboys went 182-54 during his reign with Southwest Regional Championships at the the Division IV level in 1998 and the Division III level in 2009.
The Ashland College graduate had an uncanny ability to adapt to the players he had on the field. He took those strengths and exploited those talents to their fullest each campaign. One year his team might be known as a run-oriented squad and a year later they might lead the city in passing yards. His vision to get the best out all his kids was the reason he racked up all those victories.If Cincinnati had a Mount Rushmore for high school football coaches Berne Barre would have his mug carved into. Forever gracious with his time the 60-year old Barre will be deeply missed on Friday's this fall.
