Chris Fant is moving to Omaha Northwest from Omaha South as football coach.

Both teams were told Thursday of the change.

“It was clear in talking to Chris that he understands the Omaha community and has ideas that will help the Northwest athletic department and school grow in the years to come,’’ Northwest Athletic Director Andrew Wane said.

Fant will replace Steve Warren, who is leaving for private business. Both were at their schools for three seasons.
