The Salina Liberty has announced that Head Coach Eric Clayton has resigned effective immediately.

Clayton’s resignation was announced in a press release issued by the team Tuesday afternoon.

John Ludes will take over the Defensive Coordinator position.

The Liberty, in their second season of operation, are currently 0-4. The team has an overall record of 2-14 under Clayton.

“Eric Clayton is a stand-up guy, and has done more for our organization than meets the eye of fans,” said Flax. “He was passionate about this team, the fans, and the organization”.

The Liberty will next face the Wichita Force this Saturday at 6:35 p.m. at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center.
