Wallace’s journey into coaching comes full circle with Griswold football


May 22nd, 2020 by Jim Field

Chase Wallace was hired this week to be the new head football coach for the Griswold Tigers. Wallace said he has always known that coaching was something he wanted to be a part of his life.

Wallace is a Griswold graduate so he will get the unique opportunity of getting his first head coaching experience at his alma mater. Wallace is taking over for the coach he played for, Andy Everett.

Wallace said he plans to keep in place many of Coach Everett’s philosophies but wants to add some formation diversity to spread the ball out at times. Wallace said his first priority is to get kids involved with the program and excited about football.

Wallace hopes that added numbers can start to build the program up. The Tigers are coming off a winless season last year.
