Special to The Clinton Courier
The Clinton Public School District (CPSD) has named Kyle Nichols as the District’s Sports Information Director.
Coach Nichols has served in various roles in Clinton for the past eight years, including assistant baseball coach from 2016-2018 and 2022-2023 and assistant softball coach for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Nichols is also the faculty advisor for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and teaches Advanced Placement United States History during the school day.
“I love being a part of the Clinton community because we have such an incredible administration, coaching staff, and young men and women who represent our community at the highest level athletically, as well as [with] an extremely high level of class,” said Nichols. “I am so excited about this position, as I get to highlight the hard work of our students and coaches and shine a light on what they do each and every day.”
Before coming to Clinton, Nichols served as an assistant football coach and assistant baseball coach at Kossuth High School from 2013 to 2015, helping lead the Aggies to a baseball state championship in 2014.
Nichols spent his playing days in Birmingham, Alabama, where he was a four-year letterman at Samford University from 2006 to 2009. In 2009, as a senior, Nichols led the Bulldogs in appearances and saves and was named Mr. Bulldog by his peers and the Samford Athletics administration for his work on the field and off the field in the classroom and the community.
Nichols is married to his wife, Hannah, who also teaches in the Clinton Public School District and serves as the AP art, Drawing, and Painting teacher while also helping lead Student Council. They have one son, John Wilson, and they are expecting their second child this November.
In his new role, Nichols will also be involved with the recently launched CPSD athletics website, ClintonArrows.com, which will include rosters, schedules, videos, stats, highlights and spotlights of athletes and programs.
