I’m reposting and updating a bit of information from the Coaches Project, which I started in earnest this spring. I’m trying to find out the head coach for every school for each season. I got a huge boost from the 1994 Shrine Bowl program, but I’ve still got a few questions that have yet to be answered….

Below is a list of schools and years for which the head coach is not known. Take a look at the list and see if you know who was the head coach at these schools in the years listed.

Cokeville, Green River, Guernsey-Sunrise, Hanna, Jackson, Lander, Lingle, Lyman, Mountain View, Pinedale, Ten Sleep, Tongue River, Torrington and Wyoming Indian are the lists in greatest need of updates and help.

This list does not include the fact that I’m missing the names of coaches for basically every single defunct program, too. So… if you can find coaches for Albin, Arvada-Clearmont, Basin, Bow-Basin, Byron, St. Mary’s, Chugwater, Cowley, Dayton, Deaver-Frannie, Encampment, Farson, Glendo, Goshen Hole, Guernsey, Huntley, LaGrange, Manderson, Manville, Morton, North Big Horn, Pavillion, Ranchester, Reliance, St. Stephens, Snake River, Sunrise, Superior or Worland Institute, I will be glad to post those, as well.

I’m also missing first names for a ton of coaches, and if you can fill those in, that would be awesome. Take a look at the individual team pages to see where you might be able to help.

For existing schools, the following coaches’ names are needed (big missing gaps in bold):

Burlington: 1955 and 1958

Cokeville: All from 1951-79

Green River: All from 1951-71

    I know Stan Popeck coached Lander in the mid- to late-70s (1975-79?). I can make some calls and see who else I can come up with for the Tigers.
    Good luck with the rest.

    Thanks Jack. Lander is one of those schools where the records are really limited, so thanks for that update. When you can pin down his leaving date, I’ll add it to the Lander page.
