Thomas says his relationship with Warrensburg coach Chris Nimmo played key in his decision. Thomas also sees some benefits moving from a Class 1 varsity coach to a Class 5 assistant.
Thomas says he’ll miss the relationships he’s built with his current and former Trojan players.
Thomas’ wife Carey is Community’s Track and Field coach and she will also depart the district at the end of the year.
