Riverton assistant football coach Troy Anderson has been promoted to be school’s new head football coach, wyopreps.com has reported.
Citing a news release from Riverton high school, Wyopreps said Anderson had been an assistant coach with the Wolverines the past four years, most recently coaching the offensive and defensive lines.
Anderson is serving overseas as part of the Wyoming National Guard right now and will coordinate his coaching efforts from there until his return in June, Wyopreps said.
Anderson takes over for Pat Patterson, who resigned after last season. Patterson had coached the Wolverines for seven seasons, finishing 27-39, including 4-6 last season.
Fellow Class 3A programs Powell and Green River have also hired new head coaches since the end of last season. Class 1A six-man Midwest is also seeking a new head coach for 2020. If you know of other head coaching changes statewide, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
