Scorpio Horn, a former assistant football coach at William Chrisman High School and the current girls basketball coach at Van Horn, has been selected as the new head football coach at Chrisman.

The school will be releasing a formal announcement today.

Horn replaces John Crutcher, who resigned after four seasons. The Bears went 9-31 during Crutcher’s tenure – 1-9 in 2013 after finishing 5-5, 0-10 and 3-7 the previous three seasons.

Horn graduated from Blue Springs and played college football at Missouri Western. He served as an assistant under former head coaches Mike Spotts and Mark Simcox at Chrisman and followed Simcox to Park Hill South, where he served as an assistant until taking over the Van Horn girls basketball team this season.
