Hanks High School will name Jason Blair its new head coach on Thursday, KTSM learned on Monday.
Blair spent the last two seasons as the Knights offensive coordinator under Aaron Price, who left Hanks to take a coaching job at Northern Arizona University. Blair’s promotion will help keep the Knights coaching staff partially intact.
Blair played tight end at UTEP in the 1990s, before becoming a high school coach and teacher. In addition to Hanks, he’s coached at Parkland, as well as other schools.
Hanks is expected to make Blair’s promotion official on Thursday.
