Clint Reed, who has been the head football coach at Laramie the past four seasons, won’t return as the Plainsmen’s head coach in 2021.
Reed’s resignation came Wednesday, a report from KOWB-1290 AM Radio in Laramie said. Laramie activities director Ron Wagner released a statement acknowledging Reed’s contributions to the program.
Reed confirmed via email to wyoming-football.com on Thursday that he was no longer part of the program.
“I would’ve liked to continue as a coach, but after discussions with our administration it became clear it was best for me to step down,” Reed said via email. “My hope is that the next coach will continue to work on the foundation and help Laramie become a competitive and winning program.”
Reed will continue to teach math at Laramie High School.
Reed has been with the Laramie program for close to two decades, the last four as head coach.
Laramie has a combined record of 10-29 the past four seasons, including a 2-8 mark in 2020. The Plainsmen haven’t had a winning season or won a playoff game since going 9-1 and finishing as Class 4A runners-up in 2000.
Reed’s resignation is the first reported head coaching change in Wyoming this offseason. If you know of other head coaching changes, please email me at email@example.com.
