LHS will have a new head football coach next season. Cliff Abbott will not be the head coach after three seasons as rule 10 head coach. USD 480 sent the following press release Thursday afternoon regarding the head football coaching position.
Head football coach Cliff Abbott and Liberal High School have agreed to part ways. USD 480 would like to thank coach Abbott for his leadership and time spent at Liberal High School.
Coach Abbott was the head coach at Liberal High School for three years. The Redskins amassed a record of 9-19 and advanced to the playoffs once during his tenure as head coach. Coach Abbott has strong family ties as well as a construction business in Liberal and will continue to be a proud Redskin supporter. We appreciated coach Abbott's dedication to the football program and his passion to the Liberal community.
USD 480 and Liberal High School will begin accepting applications for Abbott's replacement immediately.
