Chase Kistler will be the new head football coach at Powell, the Powell Tribune has reported.
The paper said Kistler will transition from being the head boys basketball coach to the head football coach. Kistler had been an assistant football coach at Powell and had been the head boys basketball coach since the 2013-14 school year.
Kistler takes over for Aaron Papich, who resigned after being the Panthers’ head coach the past two seasons.
Powell reached the Class 3A championship game last season and finished 7-5.
Class 3A programs Green River and Riverton 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.
