Morrison said via text message Tuesday that he was an assistant coach at Thermopolis from 2012-16, including a run as defensive coordinator from 2013-16. He also coached basketball and track in Thermopolis at various levels. Originally from Lamar, Colorado, Morrison said he took the Burns job in part to be closer to family, as well as to take an opportunity to become a head coach.
He replaces Marv Mirich, who was the head coach for seven seasons with the Broncs. Under Mirich, the Broncs went 21-37, qualifying for the Class 2A playoffs in 2011 and 2013. Burns went 1-7 last season.
Other Wyoming schools with new head coaches, or with vacant head coaching spots, include Class 4A Cheyenne Central and Sheridan, Class 3A Green River, Lander, Powell and Rawlins, Class 2A Greybull, Lovell, Moorcroft and Wheatland and Class 1A 11-man Big Horn.
