Model Laboratory School has formally announced the hiring of Tim Masthay as the Men’s Varsity Soccer Coach.

Masthay, 33, is a 2005 graduate of Murray High School.

After graduation, Masthay attended the University of Kentucky, where he punted and kicked for the football team from 2005-2008. He was the first Wildcat ever to appear in over 50 games. In 2008, he was voted the first team All–SEC and first team Academic All American. Masthay was also named as Kentucky’s Mr. Wildcat, the highest honor for any student-athlete. He graduated with an economics degree in 2009.

Masthay went on to punt for the Green Bay Packers for six years, where he still holds the record for career gross punting average, net punting average, and the longest punt in the Packers’ playoff history. Masthay was also part of the winning team in the 2010 Super Bowl.

After his professional football career, Masthay earned an M.Ed. in Positive Coaching from the University of Missouri. He’s served as an assistant coach at the high school and college level, guiding his teams to greater success.

Model Athletic Director Scotty Sutton said, “After a long and thorough search, we found a winner in Tim Masthay. He was a top athlete at Murray High School, so he comes from and understands the atmosphere of a small school just like Model. Tim’s played and coached at all levels, and he’s prepared to take Model’s program to new heights in the years to come.”

Masthay stated, “After speaking with Scotty Sutton and many others about Model, I was convinced it was the place I needed to be. I’m looking to build on the very successful program that Steve Savage had established, and I’m very excited to be joining the Model community.”

Tim is married to his wife Amanda, a Berea native, and they have three children: Emory, 7, Paxton, 5, and Darcy, 3.
