Mowry takes over for Don Julian, who stepped down in December after leading Sheridan to three consecutive Class 4A championships and five overall in 11 years. Julian went 102-22 in those 11 years.
A release from the school district said Mowry’s hiring was approved by the Sheridan County School District No. 2 on Monday night.
“I feel fortunate that for the past eleven years, my family and I have been a part of such a wonderful community, school district, high school, and football program,” Mowry said in the release. “As I move forward as head coach for the Broncs, I look forward to giving back to a community and school district that has provided so much to my family.”
Mowry played for Julian when Julian coached at Riverton. Mowry was a Casper Star-Tribune Super 25 first-team selection as a senior in 1999, helping lead the Wolverines to three consecutive Class 3A championships. He played football at Mesa State (Colo.) and joined Julian in Sheridan as an assistant when Julian joined the Broncs in 2007.
Since 2011, Mowry has been an assistant principal at Sheridan High; prior to that, he taught math.
