Lumber Kings Hire Head Coach

Clinton Lumber Kings

A veteran college coach will lead the Clinton Lumber Kings during their first season this summer in the Prospect League. The team has announced the hiring of Jack Dahm to be the manager.

Dahm currently is starting his 7th year as head coach at Mount Mercy in Cedar Rapids, a job he will keep in addition to working for the Lumber KIngs.

He played baseball in college for Creighton University, then worked there as an assistant then head coach. He was head coach at the University of Iowa from 2003 to 2013 leading the Hawkeyes to the Big Ten Tournament three times.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
