Former Bucs receiver Michael Clayton has been hired as the new head football coach at Plant City High School.
Clayton played nine years in the NFL, including six with the Bucs. He was the team’s first-round pick in 2004. Before that, he was a member of LSU’s national championship team in 2003.
He had 2,955 career receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. Seven of those touchdowns came in his rookie season, where he had 1,193 receiving yards.
Plant City finished 6-5 last season and qualified for the state playoffs, but was eliminated in the first round by eventual state champion Venice.
