Maize boys coach Chris Grill is now the Garden Plain coach

After five seasons and one trip to the Class 6A tournament, Maize boys basketball coach Chris Grill has resigned to become the Garden Plain boys coach.

Grill said the reasons are solely to have a chance in the future to watch and coach his sons. His family lives in Garden Plain and he has three sons.

He said the decision to leave Maize wasn’t easy — the Eagles were 17-6 and went to the Class 6A tournament in March — but he said the only school he would have left Maize for was Garden Plain.
