In addition, the board extended the contracts of Jared Pontius, high school principal; Brian Wosman, athletic/activities director and transportation director; and Kinsey Cissna, special education coordinator.
They also renewed the contracts of Steven Kerr, middle school principal, and Bridgette Augspurg, elementary school principal.
Krietemeyer, who was chosen from among five candidates, was the assistant coach under Miles, and teaches high school social studies.
Krietemeyer coached football at the middle school level for four years, and the high school level four years.
He was a head middle school coach at both Scotland County and Palmyra.
He was the defensive coordinator for the last three years at Palmyra.
