Moorcroft’s head football coach is taking a new teaching and coaching job in Montana, leaving the Wolves’ top football coaching spot open.
Travis Santistevan, a native of Lusk, has spent the past four years as head football coach in Moorcroft.
Santistevan said via email to wyoming-football.com Thursday that he will move to Baker, Montana, before the next school year and will teach and coach there.
The Moorcroft position is listed as open on the Crook County School District No. 1 website.
The Wolves have opted down to play Class 1A nine-man football the past two seasons, as a lack of players has kept Moorcroft from playing at the Class 2A level. The Wolves will continue to do so for the next two years. As a consequence of opting down from Class 2A, Moorcroft is ineligible for the playoffs.
Under Santistevan, the Wolves went 3-5 for three consecutive years before finishing 0-8 last year. The program has had one winning season in the past 20 years.
Other programs in Wyoming seeking new head coaches this year are Rawlins, Glenrock, Cokeville and Farson. Meanwhile, Cheyenne South and Pinedale have hired new head coaches for the upcoming season. If you know of other head coaching changes in the state, please email me at email@example.com.
