IOLA -- The Iola Bulldogs may have a new head football coach. I.S.D. Superintendent Doug Devine said today that he'll take Robert Shiflett's name to the school board on Monday.
"He's a good man and was highly recomented to us," said Devine.
Shiflett is the lone finalist and has been an assistant baseball coach and assistant principal at Anderson-Shiro since 2003.
During his tenure with Robert Wisnowski and the Owls, Anderson- Shiro won the class-A state championship in 2006.
If approved by the board, Shiflett will replace Rick Prater who resigned last week after an 0-10 season in his one and only campaign in Iola.
Shiflett's football experience has been on the defensive side. Prior to coming to Anderson Shiro he was the defensive coordinator at Shepherd for 3 seasons and before that was the D.C. at Navasota for 4 years.
