Eldon High School names new head football coach



The Eldon High School football program has announced its leader for the upcoming 2024 season. The school district officially named Nick Griffin as the Mustangs' new head football coach on Thursday evening.

"We are delighted to welcome Coach Nick Griffin to the Eldon School District family. His leadership, dedication and impressive coaching record make him the perfect fit for our football program," Eldon Superintendent Matt Davis said in a press release. "We believe that under Coach Griffin's guidance, our student-athletes will not only excel on the field but will also learn valuable life skills that will benefit them in the future."

Most recently, Griffin was the head football coach at Skyline High School for the past two seasons. He also made coaching stops at Kickapoo, Monett, Branson and Republic High Schools. As an athlete, Griffin played linebacker and special teams at the collegiate level at William Jewell College, an NCAA Division II program.

Griffin will look to lead Eldon to the football program's first district championship title since 2017 when its season kicks off in late August.
