Lovell’s Jeny Gardner was let go as the Bulldogs’ head football coach on Wednesday.
Gardner said via Twitter direct message with wyoming-football.com that the decision to change coaches was not her choice.
In a tweet, Gardner thanked her players “for believing in what we were trying to do with Lovell Football.”
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Thank you to all my players this year for believing in what we were trying to do with Lovell Football.

The Bulldogs finished 1-8 last season. In a Twitter message, Gardner — an assistant with Lovell for three years before she became the state’s first female head coach — said she feared the Bulldogs’ record this year could be used as an excuse to keep other women from coaching football teams. Gardner did say she hopes to continue coaching football.
Lovell joins Glenrock as schools looking for new head coaches this offseason. If you know of other head coaching changes statewide, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
