Bethel Athletics announced Nov. 29 that A.B. Stokes, an assistant coach for two seasons in 2018 and 2019, has been appointed the next head coach of Thresher football.

Stokes becomes the 24th head coach in a program dating back to 1914.

“It’s an honor to welcome Coach Stokes and his family back to Bethel College,” said Bethel Director of Athletics Tony Hoops.

“The impact that he made on Bethel College and [in] establishing the Bethel football program four years ago was profound. Bethel College football is lucky to have a leader with such high integrity.”
