Rock Springs head football coach David Hastings has resigned after five years leading the Tigers.

News reports from Sweetwater Now, Wyo4News and the Rock Springs Rocket-Miner said Hastings resigned and “looks forward to the new transition in his life and career.”

Rock Springs AD Tom Jassman said via email Wednesday morning that a replacement had not yet been named. He said a hire would be sought for “the time that is needed to establish an effective hire for the program.”

Hastings did not immediately reply to an email sent by wyoming-football.com on Tuesday seeking more details.

Hastings went 21-29 in his five seasons with the Tigers. The team’s best season came in 2016, when Rock Springs went 8-3 and reached the Class 4A semifinals, securing the program’s first winning season since 2003 in the process. Rock Springs was 3-7 last season.

Hastings was previously the head coach for programs at Lehi, Utah, and Sugar-Salem, Idaho.

Other Class 4A programs seeking new coaches for 2019 include Gillette and Kelly Walsh. Additionally, programs at GlenrockLovell and Wyoming Indian either are searching or have found a new coach for the 2019 season. If you know of other head coaching changes statewide, please email me at pschmiedt@yahoo.com.

    Hi Steve, I looked into this and heard from Rocky Mountain that they’re looking for a middle school coach, not a high school coach. But thanks for the heads up!
