Huron Hires Speiss

New Boston Huron hired Tim Speiss to be the Chiefs new head football coach. Speiss coached last season as Swanton high school in Ohio, where he was the defensive coordinator. Speiss was the head coach at Genoa high school in Ohio prior to that and had a 22-2 record  that included two undefeated regular seasons.

Any idea what brings him up here? Seems to have a good track record, good hire for the Chiefs.

Looked up Genoa HS he looks good I also saw his personal stuff, is he bringing his 2 sons with him?

Went 22-2 and than left the school? Sounds fishy

Fishy? Any chance the guy just didn't like it there?

State championship and a couple of runner up's as the DC at Liberty Center from 1991-2006. Swanton was a Wing T offense from what I saw online.

Him and vicars have worked together along time, kinda like the gairmo of north Ohio ... they even run the wing t haha... Huron might be the new alpha male

I can tell you that Huron did do interviews, because I was on the interview panel. We had the AD, Board Vice President, 4 parents (one was the President of Jr. Football program) we interviewed 5 candidates, some with Head Coaching experience some without. Coach Speiss was without question the best candidate. He has retired from teaching in Ohio, and is still a young man. He can come to Michigan to teach and keep is full retirement from Ohio. I would do the same thing if I were him.

Sounds like a good hire by the Chiefs. EM

This is Coach Spiess. Thank You for the welcome to the Huron League. I am excited to begin this new chapter, not only in my life, but also the lives of my two youngest Sons, who are both two year starters. I retired, from Ohio Public Schools, when my oldest Son graduated from high school. I went to Swanton to work for my former principal who is now the Superintendent. Huron feels like "Home Sweet Home" to my Family and we are EXCITED to get started.

Welcome to the league Coach Spiess. The blog looks forward to covering your games and working with you to help bring exposure to Huron and the rest of the area teams.

Coach Speiss is a great coach, great teacher, and great ambassador to kids. He will be missed at Swanton. I was privileged to experience his knowledge as he was apart of our baseball program. Coach Speiss was a HUGE part of helping Swanton Sports become relevant again. Thanks Coach and good luck.

As a Huron Alum and blog vet, welcome to the Huron League! I love to boast Huron as a top contender on here and always give my alma mater the upper hand; don't let me down! I look forward to seeing what you can do to further this program and see it taken to the next level. We've come a long way; take us further coach. Congratulations and good luck!

I played for Coach Speiss in the mid 90's at Liberty Center. Tim is an amazing coach, motivator and technician. He has the unigue ability to make an average player good and a good player great. You have found a good one! Good luck Coach Speiss!

That is awesome. Somebody outside the same old crap area. Hopefully he can bring something new to the league instead of watching this same old stuff for the last 30 years.


Sure my 1974 pinto gets me to work everyday, but wouldn't most of us want a 2017 Mustang. Just saying.

Curious does anybody know the kind of offense and defense the new coach runs?

Gary Hauf said...

I saw mentioned before he runs a wing-T. A typical Wing T formation is one TE with a wing. Offset backs(2) and a wideout.

I wish Coach Spiess the best of luck this year but he has alot of work to do! There is talent but a serious lack of football IQ because of the never ending cycle of offenses and defenses the program has used. The Chiefs only averaged 17 points per game last year with the best group of talent in the league! I wonder how Coach Spiess's sons will impact the program.
