Thompson has been the head coach at Alburnett the past eight seasons.
"This is an exciting time for our wrestling program," said Prairie Athletic Director Rocky Bennett in a press release. "We had a very strong pool of candidates but it became clear that Kane was the right person to lead our program.
"I have watched him build a very successful program at Alburnett that competes for state championships year end and year out. He is a high-character guy that will continue to strengthen the culture here at Prairie."
During Thompson's tenure at Alburnett, the wrestling program has been among the state's best.
