Clinton High School athletics director Dr. Nickie Templeton has announced a number of additions to the coaching and sports administration staff.

Dr. David Barnes, who preceded Templeton, is now Assistant Athletics Director.

“He is not a new face to CHS, and he brings a multitude of wisdom back to athletics,” Templeton said. “I am looking forward to working with him once again.”

T.J. Lanford, a former CHS athlete, has been added to Tom Fortman’s baseball staff.

Officer Kasey Templeton, Resource Officer at CMS, will be the Clinton Middle School volleyball coach.

“We are fortunate to have a city representative on the coaching staff,” Templeton said.

Mariel Fridy will coach junior varsity volleyball and soccer. Andrew Campbell has been named eighth-grade football coach. Jason Speaks, a Clinton native who has worked in girls’ AAU basketball, will fill the junior varsity girls’ team position. Nick Mann will take over as junior varsity boys’ soccer coach.

Templeton said other announcements will follow.
