Fewer new coaches were hired in the 2020 offseason than in any season in more than 20 years.
With only seven new head coaches statewide — Kevin Cuthbertson at Green River, Joe Campbell at Midwest, Chase Kistler at Powell, Greg Mendenhall at Riverside, Troy Anderson at Riverton, Dane Weaver at Ten Sleep and Patrick Sweeney at Worland — Wyoming has fewer new head coaches than in any year since 1997.
In 1997, as well as in 1996 and 1985, only six new head coaches were hired statewide, although Wyoming did have fewer football programs at those times.
Since 1997, the number of new head football coaches statewide has varied between eight and 14 in any given year. There were 14 new head coaches prior to both the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
