Wheatland’s head coach has resigned after two years to spend more time with his family.
Tom Waring, who led Wheatland to the Class 2A semifinals this year, resigned in mid-November. He verified his resignation via email Wednesday with wyoming-football.com.
Waring said his daughter is beginning junior high sports this year, and he wants to spend time supporting her efforts.
“It was a difficult decision because I love coaching these guys, and I love football,” Waring wrote. “But, I do preach to my players that football should never be number one on your list of priorities. I tell them family always comes first, so basically I am just taking my own advice.”
Waring went a combined 9-10 in his two seasons with the Bulldogs, including 5-5 in 2017.
Waring previously coached at Rawlins in 2013 and, prior to that, Hanna from 2009-12.
A replacement in Wheatland has not yet been named.
