Ryan Collier, who spent four years as an assistant coach at Glenrock, will lead the Herders as the program’s new head coach.
Glenrock activities director Julie Kuhlman announced Collier’s hiring on Wednesday via an email to media.
Prior to coming to Glenrock, Collier was the head coach at Otis High School in Colorado for six years. At Glenrock, he has coached a variety of positions, including defensive line and offensive backfield, in addition to being the co-offensive coordinator.
He is also the head track and field coach at Glenrock and teaches social studies at the high school. He is a native of Denver.
“Ryan will continue to bring a wide knowledge base of the game of (football) to our Herder program, as well as a mission to inspire, teach, and motivate our students to be outstanding (football) players, but even better citizens,” Kuhlman said in the email.
Collier replaces Ray Kumpula, who retired at the end of the season after a total of 23 years as head coach of the Herders over two separate stints.
Glenrock is the first program statewide to name a new head coach for 2019, as Wyoming Indian and Lovell are also looking for new head coaches. If you know of other head coaching changes statewide, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
