Football careerEdit

Kusk played football for AaB, where he made more than 150 first team appearances.

His coaching career started with a number of smaller coaching jobs at AaB, both as an assistant and in the youth department, before becoming head coach of Aalborg Chang in 1994. Afterwards, he also coached Viborg FF and AaB.

In 2005, he won promotion with SønderjyskE to the Danish Superliga, but stepped down from his position coach after being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.[1][2]

In January 2008, he was hired as a talent coordinator for AaB, but stopped, after mutual agreement with AaB, due to alcoholism which prevented him from carrying out his job.[3]

Political careerEdit

In 2017, he was elected to the Aalborg Municipality council as a Social Democrat.[4]
