Deer Park has announced the hiring of Tucker Berger as the Wildcats’ next football coach, pending board approval.
“I am honored and excited to take on the role of head football coach at Deer Park High School.

The Wildcats hired from within, as Berger has been the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach since 2020. His football roots run deep; he played club football at Miami University and was a standout linebacker at Wyoming High School. Berger led the Cowboys in tackles as a junior and a senior and was a Cincinnati Hills League first team selection as a junior.
“His passion for the game, combined with his leadership abilities and dedication to player development, make him the perfect candidate to lead our football program to new heights,” athletic director Greg Huster said.
Berger succeeds Calvin Johnson, who led Deer Park to a 32-40 record in seven seasons. The Wildcats went 3-8 in 2023, beating Shroder, MVCA and Mariemont in the regular season before falling to Twin Valley South in the playoffs. The Wildcats open the 2024 regular season against Belmont on Aug. 24.
