Ted Holmstrom, whose previous head football coaching stops in the state took him to Lyman, Laramie and Riverside, will be the new head football coach at Rock Springs.
Rock Springs High School announced the hiring on its Facebook page on Wednesday.
Holmstrom was the head coach in Lyman for three years, from 2009-11, helping the Eagles ta state title game appearance in his final season. He also was the head coach at Laramie in 2012 and Riverside to start the 2013 season.
Since then, Holmstrom spent the 2015 season as the offensive coordinator at Vermilion Community College in Minnesota, the 2016-18 seasons as the head coach at Hancock Central High School in Michigan, and most recently, the head coach at Mobridge-Pollock High School in South Dakota for one season.
Prior to coming to Laramie, he coached at the high school and college levels in Michigan.
He replaces Mark Lenhardt, who left Rock Springs to take the head coach’s spot at Riverton.
Statewide, Glenrock, Wheatland, Guernsey, Saratoga and Wright are also searching for a head coach for next season. Meanwhile, Campbell County, Evanston, Green River, Lander, Riverton and Rocky Mountain have hired a new head coach for the 2023 season.
