Search committee formed to find new MHHS football coach

It was over a week ago when the Mountain Home School Board voted to accept Benji Mahan's resignation as the Bombers' head football coach. The school has taken the next step toward hiring Mahan's successor as they have formed a search committee comprised of athletic director Janet Wood, high school principal Dana Brown, junior high principal Ron Czantskowski, student services director Wes Henderson and board president Ben Strider. Czantskowski, Henderson and Strider are also former Bomber football players.
Wood tells KTLO, Classic Hits and The Boot Sports the committee will be in a hiring process that actually began right after Mahan's letter was accepted.
