Blaine announced Thursday that it has hired Ben Geisler as its new head football coach.
Geisler is a 1995 graduate of Blaine and played college football at Bethel University. He held assistant coaching positions at Mounds View and Irondale before being named head coach at Irondale in 2004. He stepped down after the 2013 season and spent the last three seasons as an assistant at Spring Lake Park.
Geisler replaces Tom Develice, who left Blaine to become the activities director at Coon Rapids.
