Marv Mirich will be Burns’ head football coach this fall.

Mirich was previously an assistant coach with the Broncs and has also coached basketball teams at Burns and Albin.

Mirich takes over for longtime coach Bill Fullmer, who retired from coaching this spring after leading Burns’ football team for the past 17 years.

Burns won four of its final five games of the regular season to qualify for the playoffs in 2010, but lost in the first round to Lovell. The Broncs won the Class 2A state championship in 2008.

An NAIA all-America wide receiver in 1990 at Black Hills State, Mirich was inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame in 2002.

This was the last known open head football coaching position in the state. If you know of any other coaching changes, comment below or email me at

    Hey Patrick,

    I think you switched the names in the second to last paragraph. I’m pretty sure you Bill Fullmer wasn’t catching passes at BHSU in 1990.

    On a related note, you should do a post on the father-son coaching lineages in the state of Wyoming. Surely there are a few more besides the Miriches and the Detis.

    Thanks for the catch, Curt. My bad.
