Casey Quinn, who has led three schools to the Central Section playoffs, will take over as football coach at Clovis North.
Quinn was introduced to the school’s players Thursday as the replacement for Fresno Athletic Hall of Famer Tim Simons, who retired in January.
“Through the interview process and talking to different people I interviewed, I kept coming back to Casey,” Clovis North athletic director Coby Lindsey said. “He’s very passionate about what he does, and everywhere he’s been, he’s had success.”

Quinn has had a winning record and taken his team to the playoffs in each of his past six seasons as a head coach.
He went 20-4 overall and took Cesar Chavez to the Division IV semifinals the past two seasons at the Delano school. Prior to that, Quinn went 6-6 and went to the D-IV playoffs in his only season at Roosevelt in 2013, and was 24-20 with a co-Tri-River Athletic Conference title and three playoff appearances in four seasons at Central between 2008-11.
Quinn, who was an assistant at Reedley College in 2012, is 50-30 overall as a head coach.
“He has learned what it takes to be a winning coach and how to build a program,” Lindsey said. “When I called around and talked to people about him, they raved about the program he ran and how kids enjoyed playing for him. He’s really a good fit for Clovis North.”
The Broncos went 7-5 overall and 3-2 in the TRAC while reaching the Division I semifinals last season under Simons, who closed his 30-year, 249-victory coaching career with two two-year stints with the Broncos in 2008-09 and 2014-15.
