Logan Clothier was officially hired to be the next head coach for the Circle High School Thunderbirds football team next school year. The decision was approved at Monday night's school board meeting in Towanda.

Clothier is a youngster who graduated from Emporia State University in 2015. He played at the wide receiver position and a little bit of special teams, but his time on the field was limited by injuries. After his time there, he moved back to Topeka and was an assistant coach last season for his alma mater, Topeka High. During his high school career, he caught 94 passes for 1,055 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Trojans.
