Nesbitt Leaves Hickman High for CMU
Nesbitt will become a defensive assistant coach at Central Methodist University in Fayette, where his son, Ryan, plays.
Coach Nesbitt led Hickman for 13 years, including 11 winning seasons, and the 2004 Class 6 state title.
"It's going to be a tremendous challenge, you know, from a competitive standpoint, coming off a 3-8 season," he said. "Coach Masonholder is doing a super job there. But, traditionally, the 6 or 7 years before he got there, over the last 10 years, they have certainly had their struggles on the field. And, for 26 years, I've grown accustomed to winning our share."
Nesbitt also was head coach at Hannibal High School from 1984-89, then was defensive coordinator for three years at what is now Truman State University in Kirksville.
