The Chadron State football offense will be under new leadership this fall.  Offensive Coordinator Logan Masters has accepted the same position with his alma mater Wayne State after guiding one of the RMAC’s most explosive offenses in 2019.

Masters told me, “Coming to Wayne (State) was a chance to come home and build what Chadron has at my alma mater. I get to work with Coach McMenamin who has had a huge influence in my life!”

McMenamin was recently named the new head coach at WSU and is filling out his staff.

Masters began the three-year Chadron State era of his career as wide receivers coach and led the offense for one season, 2019.  CSC was the RMAC’s second-leading scoring offense (37.1 ppg, and second-leading yardage unit (457.7 ypg) as well as in the top three of both rushing and passing yards per game.

“I loved my time in Chadron, people were great and welcoming to my family,” Masters said. “(I) loved my time with the coaching staff and Coach Long helped me become a better coach and man.  (I was) really lucky and blessed to be able to coach such great kids!”

Whomever the Eagles tab to become offensive coordinator in 2020 will have a boatload of talent to guide going forward.  All-RMAC Player of the Year candidate Dalton Holst will return for his senior season, and offensive weapons Cole Thurness, Elijah Myles and four starting linemen are all expected to return.
